I just watched Bush's interview with Jim Lehrer.
Bush said it's "hard, I think, for the American people to understand" the situation in Iraq.
"I've spent a lot of time during my presidency talking to the American people and educating the American people about the stakes and what we're trying to get done."
He's doing the "very best to explain to people why success is vital." But we still don't understand. How long does he think it'll take for us to understand the situation?
Cracked Egg or Broker Egg?
PRESIDENT BUSH: Yeah, you know, that's an interesting question. I don't quite view it as the broken egg; I view it as the cracked egg --
MR. LEHRER: Cracked egg?
PRESIDENT BUSH: -- that - where we still have a chance to move beyond the broken egg. And I thought long and hard about the decision, Jim. Obviously it's a big decision for this theater in the war on terror, and you know, if I didn't believe we could keep the egg from fully cracking, I wouldn't ask 21,000 kids - additional kids to go into Iraq to reinforce those troops that are there.
Sacrifices in the cold war.
What the hell does he mean? No wonder we don't understand.
