Webb: Democrats will provide Iraq remedy (radio address)
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 10:19 AM by cal04
The only remedy to a series of Iraq policy failures by President Bush is a Democratic takeover of Congress in the Nov. 7 election, Virginia Senate candidate Jim Webb said Saturday.

The former Republican, who was President Reagan's Navy secretary, said in the Democrats' weekly radio address that Bush's "incompetence" in Iraq had undercut the fight against terrorism.

(snip)
"Since 2003, President Bush has laid out nine different plans for victory in Iraq, none of them serious and none of them workable. And most seriously, this incompetence has hindered our ability to fight international terror," Webb said.

(snip)
"It gives me no great pleasure today to be saying `I told you so,'" said Webb, whose son, Jimmy, is a Marine on active duty in Iraq. "It pains me as an American that our casualties are again escalating while this president and his followers are still incapable of bringing forward an intelligent, commonsense approach to ending our involvement there."

5. Heard him on the local radio
two or three days ago on the way to work (WTOP's Politics Program here in Greater D.C.). I very much liked what I heard...esp. when he said that he would block funding for the big ol' bases they're building in Iraq. He's in favor of trying new approaches in Iraq but he doesn't want troops to stay there. If he gets in, maybe it'll be goodbye to GWB & Co.'s plans for a lifelong lease on that sand.
