The hypocrisy of the current republican view of the world is hilarious. Its great, I love it. Seriously, I find it amazingly entertaining.

Bush today stated that the US will leave when the Iraqis stand up. Makes sense when you first start to think about it, but lets compare it to something else... another issue that rises up every few years- welfare. The Republican view of welfare is that people cannot take personal responsibility until the government gets out of the way. How is this any different? By their logic we need to leave Iraq FIRST then people will begin to take personal responsibility.

Now this all came out because General Casey stated that a troop scale down was possible in the coming months. Bush knew this to be the case but the White House was sitting on it until the mid-late summer so that they could use it going into the fall election cycle. Casey, a career military man, released the plan when it became advisable for the military to do so and the Democrats have jumped all over it. Long story short (too late) General releases troop reduction plan, similar to congressional Democrats plan, Bush tries to recover and digs a deeper hole.

So here is my plan for what Bush should do to try and secure some votes for his fellow Republicans in the fall: Admit it. That's right, admit it. Admit that it is time to bring troops home and say that the Generals have been told that as soon as they can safely bring troops home they should. You don't even have to admit that you were wrong to start, you just have to admit that it is time to bring them home. It won't be bringing troops home that gets you votes, though that will get you some, it will be the fact that you are speaking straight to voters that gets you more.
