Don't let other people play you.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

It is abhorrent to mollify and placate those who seek definitives when ultimatums are the genuine regime of the weak and wobbly knee'd dynasty. Halcyon days are closer and further than we can imagine.

Impossible to lower yourself below the lowest point. That's why they call that point the lowest point.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

US monthly toll in Iraq at lowest since invasion... US monthly toll in Iraq at lowest since invasion

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush hailed a new "degree of durability" in security gains in Iraq Thursday, saying it should permit him to announce further U.S. troop reductions later this year.

With the war in its sixth year and violence substantially decreased in recent weeks, Bush gave a brief and hastily arranged update on the war that focused on several fronts of progress.

He said that violence is at its lowest ebb since the spring of 2004, that forces are in their third consecutive month with lower violence levels holding steady, and that Iraqi forces are becoming increasingly capable of both fighting and securing the country.

"The progress is still reversible," Bush acknowledged. But he added, "There now appears to be a degree of durability in gains."
