So what was Harry Reid doing backing him up today on ABC?
"If it's for a surge, that is, for two or three months and it's part of a program to get us out of there as indicated by this time next year, then, sure, I'll go along with it," Reid, who will become the majority leader when Democrats take control of the Senate next month, told ABC's "This Week" program.
How bogus is this? It's so bogus that Colin Powell not only knows it, he's willing to say so.
"There really are no additional troops. All we would be doing is keeping some of the troops who were there, there longer and escalating or accelerating the arrival of other troops."
. . .
The "active Army is about broken," Powell said.
Josh is absolutely right about this. Bush is wrong on the war and the public knows it. Almost three quarters of the public are opposed to the war, so where is the payoff in lining up behind Bush?
