Bush: "making good progress towards coming up with a plan"

CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush said on Thursday he was making "good progress" in coming up with a fresh strategy on Iraq, as he met with top advisers at his Texas ranch.

Bush, who plans to unveil his plan next month, gathered with U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and national security adviser Stephen Hadley. Gates and Pace reported their findings from a trip last week to Iraq, told reporters.

"Success in Iraq is vital for our own security," Bush said. He said he was "making good progress towards coming up with a plan that we think will help us achieve our objectives. As I think about this plan, I always have our troops in mind."

He said that he has "more consultations to do" and said his administration would be speaking with members of Congress.

11. How about we bring the troops home until he has a plan
with the speed he usually moves that should take us to the next president easily.

"A strategy about makin' progress, that everybody can feel good about"


Nope.. * did not say it.. The newly-minted senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker said it..

remember when EVERY democratic hopeful was grilled mercilessly "what's your plan?..You HAVE to have a plan..Give us details of your plan"..ad infinitum..

As usual Corker (R) gets to meander and ponder and spout platitudes,and no calling HIM on the total lack of substance

Take your time, Chimpy, we wouldn't want you to feel pressured or anything. No reason to rush into anything.
