William Saleton over at Slate has done us a service by pointing out that Bush didn't say anything new last night. In fact, he repeated the same old rhetoric: Stay the course, Freedom makes the World a better place and Saddam was a threat to the world while giving aid to terrorists.
A portion of his closing statement:
One thing is for certain, though, about me, and the world has learned this: When I say something, I mean it. And the credibility of the United States is incredibly important for keeping world peace and freedom.
The credibility of the U.S. in the world today is far from what it once was. And if Bush does not come up with a plan for transfer of power in Iraq within 78 days his credibility will be shot too.
