The President is due to read a speech in just a few minutes on the state of affairs, and our stunning victory, in Iraq. All you really need to know about the speech are three things:
- The President spent more time turning our Oval Office into something resembling a rich guy’s rumpus room than he did talking to the man who should get the credit for the nigh-miraculous condition of Iraq today.
- Some way, some how, the President will take credit for things in Iraq even though, he dismissed and ridiculed the most important decision that led to tonight’s speech.
- Stephen Green knows how to lay it all out for you, nice and plain. This speech isn’t aimed at anyone but his anti-war base, which shouldn’t need a sop tossed to them on national television at this point in the mid-term election cycle.
Remember these when you read coverage of the speech tomorrow morning. You’ll see glimpses of every one in the MSM coverage, no matter how badly they might want to hide them.
