Bush will lose the country

Steve Gilliard saw this coming and "seeing it play out like some horrible dream is no shock".
But I think Wednesday's speech scared the shit out of a lot of people. If he had left Iran out of it, well, it would have just sucked. But that extra bit of neocon wingnuttery, attack Iran for no clear reason? Well, that made a few people shit their pants.

What our foul, corrupt punditocracy misses is that Bush is losing the people who went along. He may keep 25 percent, but as this goes on, and Odierno and Petraeus recreate the DeLattre Line in Baghdad, and the casualities mount, the people who vote against escalation today, will be voting for impeachment tomorrow.

Bush refuses to listen or alter his plans, even when they fail. Trying to scare Iran after they've had four years to plan how to fuck US troops over with as few fingerprints as possible is just stupid. What if Sistani just says fuck it and calls for a jihad against the US? That is a card he does not want to play, but he isn't going to let Bush bomb Qom either. Bush and his team are simpletons.

[...]

Bush is in this mess because Rove has always acted as if they were the majority. Now that they are not, Rice sounds like a simpleton. Hagel was PISSED today.

A couple of years ago, Larry Eagleburger said, long time GOP factorum Eagleburger said, if Bush moves on Iran, it will be time for impeachment.

When you look at the plan itself, it's fucking insane.

But, in the end, I think America has had enough. Sending the Guard back is an insane political mistake. Two tours for part-time solders?

[...]

However, I think Bush will lose the country, and eventually leave in disgrace because his plan will fail. It will fail badly and bloodily and he will be exposed as the weak little man he is and we will not have long to wait.
