Yesterday I heard the same old rhetorical garbage in the President's press
conference. America remains a nation at war, but the enemy that attacked us
on September 11th is not the enemy we are fighting in Iraq. As of Tuesday,
the President can no longer mask an Iraqi civil war as part of the real war
This election was a referendum on the President's disastrous course in Iraq,
and the American people clearly had ENOUGH.
I look forward to working closely with Robert Gates in the coming years. A
fresh new face is what's best for this Administration. A fresh new policy
is what's best for America.
