From the AP, via Yahoo News:
Even before Bush finished speaking, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid issued a statement claiming that Bush “recycled his tired rhetoric of ‘stay the course’ and once again missed an opportunity to lay out a real strategy for success in Iraq that will bring our troops safely home.”
The Nevada senator charged that Bush failed to meet a call by the Senate to tell Americans the administration’s strategy for success in Iraq.
But just a few lines later in the same article:
…The president’s address was accompanied by the release of a 35-page White House document titled “National Strategy for Victory in Iraq.”
Just another piece of evidence showing the leaders of the Democratic party will say anything to undermine the president and the war effort. They remain completely separated from reality. So much for all that B.S. yesterday about Bush signaling acceptance of the Murtha strategy, more or less.
Here is the Washington Post account of the president’s speech.
