Despite everything, Bush is staying the course

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Froomkin distills it:

Because at today's press conference in Jordan, following his abbreviated meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Bush made it abundantly clear that he is waving off the rescue attempt by longtime Bush family fixer James A. Baker III. He'd rather stay the course.

News reports this morning indicate that Baker's bipartisan Iraq Study Group will next week officially recommend a gradual pullback of American troops from Iraq.

But in Amman, Bush went out of his way to mock the notion of a "graceful exit" -- and to insist that he's in Iraq for the long haul. "This business about graceful exit just simply has no realism to it at all," Bush said.
Nothing that Bush has proposed has had any "realism" from the beginning. But, he's not going to change. Hey, it's not his kids over in Iraq. It's just rude people like Jim Webb who have kids fighting in Bush's quagmire.
