From today’s NY Times and Newsvine discussion:

Mr. Bush has no more time to waste on “listening tours” and photo ops. The nation is in a crisis, and Americans need to hear how he plans to unwind the chaos he has unleashed in Iraq. If the president is delaying because he is searching for a good option, he can stop. There are none. But Americans need to see that he is prepared to choose among the undesirable alternatives, and clear the way for a withdrawal of American troops that does not leave even more killing and mayhem behind.

My son, Brandon, is 20. I’ve noticed there are teenage-soldiers who are dying in Iraq. If my son or daughter were over there, I’d be demanding that this president work through the holiday to reach a decision on what his “new way forward” will be.
