    Consider: President Bush's speech on
    the Iraqi war, 18 Dec 2005.

    My opinion:

    A fine speech. It was missing something though...a firm timetable for withdrawing our troops:

    I'm going to quit harrassing you with
    facts KenH starting 1 Jan 2006.
    Can anybody see this give KenH VICTORY
    in the debate if he can just hold his
    peace until that date?

    VICTORY looks like this:

    In June 2005 we celebrated the 60th year
    of the American (actually allied) occupation
    of Germany.

    In August 2005 we celebrated the 60th year
    of the American (actually allied) occupation
    of Japan.

    Defeat looks like this:
    a schedule for withdrawal.

    Even yet, we can snatch defeat from
    in Iraq from the very jaws of VICTORY.
    We can do it by scheduling withdawal.

    I want a schedule of withdrawal of all
    terrorist from The USofA.

    That was one of the best parts of the speech. He is not going to set a timetable based on polls or political pressure in Washington. The troops will begin leaving based on conditions on the ground and on the advice of the generals who are there on the ground. Unlike Vietnam, he is not going to allow politics run every aspects of this war and to defeat the USA.

    Three thumbs up? ...Ed what happened to the other
    7 thumbs you have ;) because you are all thumbs
    if you believe a man who spys on Americans without oversight or your knowledge.

    Catapult The Propaganda
    "If you've retired, you don't have anything to worry about -- third time I've said that. (Laughter.) I'll probably say it three more times.See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda. (Applause.)"

    Tell them it's propaganda, promise to tell them three more times, and they applaud.

    "Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth."—F.D.R.

    Leading instead of following poles. Just like Reagan!

    And also a dash of humility, that was the other thing that was missing.
