President Bush plans to begin a series of speeches next week again explaining the administration's strategy for winning the war in Iraq, as the White House returns to a familiar tactic to allay growing public pessimism about the war that has helped keep the president's approval rating near its historic low…
… The president hopes to give "better depth, understanding and context for how the strategy in Iraq is unfolding," a senior White House official said of the planned speeches. Vice President Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other Cabinet members will be making speeches on Iraq in advance of the anniversary of the U.S. invasion.
"Better depth, understanding and context" doubtless means saying "nine eleven" twice as much as before. Fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here. No cut and run. Scapegoating and Swift Boating. Total victory.
And the whole cadre of polly cracker cheerleaders echoing the message.
Hit 'em on the left! Hit 'em on the right! Stand up! Stand down! Fight! Fight! Fight!
