There’s an interesting (and entertaining) post on TheYoungTurks.com entitled Verbatim Quotes from Republicans when Clinton was Prez. Most people would hardly be surprised that politicians often tow the party line when they’re talking. They can flip flop quicker than, well, flip-flops. I particularly like this quote from Tom Delay:
“I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today“–Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)
And the following from Bubba Dubya himself:
“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is.”– Governor George W. Bush (R)-TX
Of course, the best exit strategy would be to get this guy to exit.
