Santorum on Iraq: "I don't remember anybody saying anything could be done in six weeks"

<snip>

It seems like some administration people like Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld expected that this would all be wiped up and we'd be out of Iraq in six weeks. But it didn't work out that way; do you think he should bear responsibility for that?

I don't remember anybody saying anything could be done in six weeks. All I remember is that the President from the very beginning said this was going to be a long and difficult struggle. I think he's been pretty clear about that, and I believe that it will be a very long and difficult struggle.

Mr Rumsfeld is in Europe to try to gain backing for possible military action against Iraq.

"It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months," he said, speaking at the American air base at Aviano, in northern Italy.

1. Santorum on his own unemployment:
"It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months," he said, speaking in his basement while watching soap operas and drinking cheap beer.

8. Somebody should fund a national ad
That just has all this garbage and then asks what the hell is wrong with this country that this election is even close.
