Think Progress thinks so.
I'm not so sure.
What the GOP is talking about are meaningless non-binding benchmarks, reports, yada, yada, yada. It's all bullshit, pure and simple.
Bush has no intention of leaving Iraq while he is president.
The surge is nothing more than the President with his enablers in Congress throwing the bodies of American service members on the bonfire of his vanity. He cannot admit his colossal error.
The President has lost the trust of the American people, who want a mandatory timeline for withdrawal.
The Congressional Republicans know perfectly well they are toast on this issue and will not go down on Bush's sinking ship.
So why in the hell would the Democratic Leadership entertain, even for one moment, betraying the American people and each and very soldier and Marine in Iraq to throw a lifeline to these losers who have so arrogantly destroyed our army and the lives of thousands?
Why? I really want to know.
