I guess this is what happens when Bush thinks he can run the show from his redneck estate.
BUSH RADIO ADDRESS: "Despite the acts of violence by the enemies of freedom, Iraq's elected leaders are now finishing work on a democratic constitution."
ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL (to the Washington Post today): "We set out to establish a democracy, but we're slowly realizing we will have some form of Islamic republic."
BUSH RADIO ADDRESS: "And when that mission of defeating the terrorists in Iraq is complete, our troops will come home... The terrorists cannot defeat us on the battlefield."
WASHINGTON POST: "Administration officials have all but given up any hope of militarily defeating the insurgents with U.S. forces."
