Because I Told Them It Had To

George Bush has tried his "surge" strategy in Iraq before, and it didn't work. So you might be wondering why George Bush's plan to increase American involvement in Iraq will work this time. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had the same question, so she asked him.
"He's tried this two times - it's failed twice," the California Democrat [Pelosi] said. "I asked him at the White House, 'Mr. President, why do you think this time it's going to work?' And he said, 'Because I told them it had to.'"

Asked if the president had elaborated, she added that he simply said, "'I told them that they had to.' That was the end of it. That's the way it is."
This has gone on far to long. Our Representatives in the House need to step up and take action.

Tell your U.S. Representative to say NO to George Bush's plan to escalate the war in Iraq.

This is a truncated transcript of their interaction--apparently when Bush said, "because I told them it had to," Pelosi responded, "Then why didn't you tell them that the other two times?"

Pelosi made the right point. This is what passes for a plan nowadays. The petulant rantings of a spoiled and hopelessly out-of-touch leader. We can't let him dig the hole any deeper.
