MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! “Sen. Webb (D-VA) on the president’s veto: ‘We won this war four years ago. The question is when we end the occupation.'”
UPDATE: Say, maybe we have the outline of a deal here — Bush agrees to withdraw troops, if Democrats agree to say loudly and publicly that we won the war.
Would Democrats go for that? I’m guessing not, as they’ve got too much invested in selling the war as a Bush defeat and I don’t think they’d be willing to give that up just to bring the troops home. And I don’t think Bush would go for it either, since I think he actually values what the troops are doing there now and doesn’t think it’s time to bring them home yet. But some people see this as an evolution in rhetoric.
