two months after heavy Republican losses
Bush rejects most dramatic Iraq options

By ANNE GEARAN, AP Diplomatic Writer 11 minutes ago

WASHINGTON -
President Bush has taken the most dramatic options off the table as he tries to change direction in
Iraq, leaving him with a list of modest military and diplomatic moves to announce in the new year.

Bush probably will ignore the boldest suggestions from a bipartisan commission that studied U.S. options in Iraq, adopting some of the group's lesser prescriptions alongside those drafted by his civilian and military advisers.

The White House National Security Council has compiled recommendations from several agencies as the administration's internal reassessment of Iraq policy nears an end. Bush plans to address the nation in early January, two months after heavy Republican losses in congressional elections.

A look at some of the president's options:

1. This won't stop until he's impeached.
Maybe it's better to let him fail for six more months. Then we won't get any back-talk from Republicans when we lay him to rest.

2. Bush doesn't care about the Republicans
Bush cares only about Bush. The fact that he has slapped down the suggestions of ISG, which was basically a bail-out by his daddy, shows this, I think.

3. Arrogant sob isn't he? He does nothing wrong and knows it all.
How many more will die to feed his ego?
