"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

What exactly is your point about the word count? So President Bush isn't a word smith.
Atleast he does know what the definition of "is" is. Let's not drag up the past and the fact the Clinton was impeached for not telling the truth in a criminal case where his past was brought up because of a law HE signed in that in a case involving sex, the persons history can be brought in as evidence. That is what he lied about. I don't care that he can't be faithful to his wife, although that does show that he certainly isn't trustworthy.
As far as an exit strategy...I think he's right on when he says he can't tell us a timeline. They (terrorists) will either ramp up their attacks or wait us out. We didn't tell Germany or Hitler what our timeline was. But that was in a different time: When our fathers had nuts the size of cannon balls and did what it takes to fight a war. Not allowing the majority, nor the minority, to dictate how to run a war. Our Congressmen need to stay out of how to fight this war, and so do "Hollywood Elites". Leave it up to the generals. This could, and seems to be turning into another Vietnam simply because Congress will not let them fight the way we did in WWII.
On to weapons of mass destruction: Yes, we have not found them. How hard is it to hide a vile or thousands of viles of Anthrax, Small Pox, or any other biological agent in the sand. Saddam hid planes in the desert, and I bet we haven't found all of them yet. He supported "Palestinian" terrorists by paying the families of the departed that are most assuredly enjoying themselves amongst the virgins in paradise with Mohammed and his 8 year old wife, among the other wives. Could that be a reason for going to war with Iraq? I believe that was one reason. Let's not forget that Saddam signed an accord with the U.S. at the end of the Gulf War that he would allow inspectors or we would go back to war with him. Just another reason to go to war. Don't let the facts get in the way of your oppinion.
By the way, Palestine was named that by Rome in 70 A.D. Mainly Jews have lived in the area since time began. There have never been a poeple called Palestinians until Yasser Arafat came along and took up "their" cause in the 60's. Yasser was born in Egypt. Not Palestine. Oh, wait, there is no Palestine. When offered a "homeland", they deny it, keeping the hatred for Israel burning in the hearts of "good" Muslims. You see, bad Muslims are the peaceful ones. But we get that mixed up in the western world. By the way, no one seems to want to cut out of Iraq, Jordan, Syrria, etc. a Palestinian homeland. Were not these countries cut out of the desert around the same time as Israel? Why go after Israel. Oh, that's right, the Koran tells them to hate the jew, kill them wherever they find them. Wonderful words from a religion of peace. As we send millions of dollars to these wonderful countries, they teach their children to hate America (the Great Satan) and the reason they are poor is because of our policies. Maybe it is the dictators policies to not give the money to the people of the nations, but to keep it for themselves and tell the people they are poor because the richest nation in the world will not help them. That can't be...
Hey Guy, "President Bush isn't a word smith", and neither are you.
