edwards responds to bush on iraq

Bush talked to the nation last night on television concerning the status of the war in Iraq. He said that progress was being made. Consensus seems to be that he lied the whole way through it. Things aren’t going well in Iraq. The country is in the midst of civil war, and most experts seem to agree that we’re not going to be able to impose a military solution. Bush came back from his recent trip there optimistic though. He talked of the success in Anbar, and pointed to our relationship with the province’s leader, Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha. Yesterday, however, he was assassinated.

After Bush spoke, John Edwards went on MSNBC and gave a short, 2-minute reply. Here it is:

I especially liked the part where he turned his focus from Bush to the Democratic Congress… “Our troops are stuck between a President who doesn’t have a plan to succeed and a Congress without the courage to bring them home.” Well said.

    hmmm…you seem to really be on team Edwards. I like a lot of what he stands for – particularly his emphasis on ending poverty. But doesn’t his stance on gay marriage and all of his jesus talk kinda bum you out? And let’s not get started on his hair…

    I agree, he needs to spend some money on his hair or something.

    As for gay marriage, I admit I haven’t been following that subject as closely as I have in the past. From my perspective, we need to reclaim the fundamental civil rights that have been lost first, before going on to gain new ground. I’m not sure where Edwards stands on this. My thought, however, is that he was in favor of civil unions, which I agree with. The government shouldn’t be in the “marriage” business.

    Yeah, I hate it when people talk about Jesus…or Ghandi, or Martin Luther King. I’m sick of all that decency. And what was the deal with their hair anyway?!

    I WAS supporting Edwards. But when I found out he didn’t agree precisely with everything I believe, I dropped him like a bad habit. I’m now supporting my reflection in the mirror for President.
