The president has more faith in the democrats than I do (God Bless his trust and innocence). The last thing Pelosi, Clinton, Reed, Kerri and Schumer want is for the military to be successful in Iraq. THE LAST THING !! Great Speech though.
"Whatever political party you belong to, whatever your position on Iraq, we should be able to agree that America has a vital interest in preventing chaos and providing hope in the Middle East. We should be able to agree that we must defeat Al Qaeda, counter Iran, help the Afghan government, work for peace in the Holy Land, and strengthen our military so we can prevail in the struggle against terrorists and extremists.
"So tonight I want to speak to Members of the United States Congress: Let us come together on a policy of strength in the Middle East. I thank you for providing crucial funds and resources for our military. And I ask you to join me in supporting the recommendations General Petraeus has made and the troop levels he has asked for." G.W. Bush addresses the nation on Iraq 9/13/07.
