2. I think you're right. What ever happened to being out of there in '07?
This is bad news for everyone, not only the Repubs.

3. Whatever happened to "six days, six weeks maybe. I doubt 6 months"
And how 'bout that "reduce troops levels to 30,000 by summer" summer of 2003, that is.

5. That is not enough to accomplish anything but provide more targets.
It's all over but the bleeding.

4. Let me see if I can get this straight
You say that more troops will be sent to Iraq and this will be announced a week before the elections?

Folks, I know Bush is not very bright, but there are limits to even his stupidity, and the people who work for him were not born yesterday.

I think you may have heard what you wanted to hear rather than what you did hear, and ran a little too quickly to your keyboard.

8. Their sales pitch will be "This will bring the insurgency to an end quickly"
They are that brazen. And their drones on the right will lap it up.

10. hard to believe
but McCain is calling for more troops but more importantly so are the generals

I heard they want 100,000 - don't know where they are going to come from

But the Iraqi PM wants the US to back out of the cities

go figure

18. Transcript...
Larry King Live
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0610/30/lkl.01.h...

<<snip>>

KING: Let me get a break. Let me get a break. Let me get a break and check in with Anderson Cooper. He will host "AC 360". He's back!

Anderson, what's up tonight?

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: Hey, Larry, thanks very much.

Coming up at the top of the hour, new developments on the number of Iraqi troops that might be needed. We're getting late word that the troop levels could rise. And announcement might come tomorrow from the U.S. commander in Iraq. The story's developing.

We're going to speak to our reporters in the field. We're trying to tell you exactly how many troops are involved and how this could impact the elections only one week away. Also tonight, continued controversy over some of the sexually explicit passages in the books of congressional hopeful Jim Webb, as well as Lynne Cheney. Mrs. Cheney told Wolf Blitzer she's never written anything sexually explicit in her books. We checked. You might be surprised what we found.

All that and more, Larry, at top of the hour.

17. They have nothing to worry about.
They'll just tell daddy to go phuck himself. He didn't go...so why should they? Pretty good arguement.
