"All he is saying is give war a chance!"
Best Summary of the impact of the unnatural disaster of the Bush Administration on these United States goes to this morning's New York Times editorial:
"...the nation has been saddled with tax cuts that have turned a budget surplus into a big deficit, education reform that has been badly managed and underfinanced, far-right judges with scant qualifications, the dismantling of regulations in order to benefit corporations at the expense of workers, and a triumph of ideology over science in policy making on the environment and medical research. All along, Americans’ civil liberties and the constitutional balance have been trampled by a president determined to assert ever more power."
Finally, Best Word of Hope goes to Virginia Senator Webb in the Democratic Response calling the president to an exit strategy:
If he does, we will join him. If he does not, we will be showing him the way.
