Nancy's Take

Thank goodness we have psychic democrats. Nancy and Harry's analysis:

Top US congressional Democrats bluntly told President George W. Bush Wednesday that his Iraq troop "surge" policy was a failure.

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the president over Iraq by sending him a letter, ahead of a White House meeting later on Wednesday.

"As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results," the two leaders wrote.

"The increase in US forces has had little impact in curbing the violence or fostering political reconciliation.
OK, all well and good. It's to be expected that Nancy and Harry aren't happy with their cornflakes after their first attempt to abandon the Iraqi people failed. But what tickled me about this article was this, a little further down the page:
The next critical point in the showdown between Bush and Congress over Iraq is expected in September, when US commander in Iraq David Petraeus is due to report on progress in the strategy to "surge" up to 30,000 more US troops into the war-ravaged nation.
"The results are in and we will soon be making the measurements." Hard to understand how we made it through World War II, without Harry and Nancy to warn us that men were dying on the beaches of Normandy.
