Ultimate Political Response

Last night I heard President Bush being interviewed by Juan Williams. Juan had apparently combed the armed forces for questions for the president, and the best he came up with was, "What are you going to do if your surge doesn't get results?" This was a pretty lame question anyway, since it's the same question any of us non-soldiers are asking, but even better was the reply - it went something like this: "Well, I came up with that plan by talking to many smart people, so I think it's going to work. And by the way, soldier, thank you for serving in Iraq. This is a great country where people volunteer to serve. Thanks to all the brave fighting men and women blah blah..." This was the equivalent of saying, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain". Maybe our President thinks he's in Oz.
