Bush hands the Dems a big favor


By Tim Redmond

By now you've all heard or read about the exceptionally uninspiring speech, but if you want to read the full text, it's here. Beyond thinking that Bush is delusional -- 20,000 new troops in Baghdad? This really is becoming Vietnam again -- I can only say that he has handed the Democrats the best opportunity in many years. This strategy will fail -- and the Dems who come out loud and clear now, and say it 's bound to fail, and call for a quick withdrawal -- will be well poised to run for president in 2008, when the GOP is in free fall .
