Well, one thing's for sure; George W. Bush definitely won't be able to beat John Edwards in 2008.
Good for him!
Edwards' Iraq ad response Posted: Thursday, September 13, 2007 11:20 AM by Domenico Montanaro

From NBC’s Mark Murray
As we mentioned earlier, tonight, the Edwards campaign is buying two minutes of airtime on MSNBC to respond to Bush's speech on Iraq.
Here are some excerpts from Edwards’s ad:
"Unfortunately, the president is pressing on with the only strategy he's ever had - more time, more troops, and more war."
"In January, after years of evidence that military actions cannot force a political solution, the president announced a military surge to force a political solution. In May, he vetoed a plan to end the war, demanded more time to show the surge could work, and Congress gave it to him. Now, after General Petraeus reports the surge has produced no progress toward a political solution, what does the president want? More time for the surge to work, when all of us know it won't."
"But Congress must answer to the American people. Tell Congress you know the truth -- they have the power to end this war and you expect them to use it. When the president asks for more money and more time, Congress needs to tell him he only gets one choice: a firm timeline for withdrawal."
If this guy doesn't get the nomination, I'll be stunned.
Join the Prime-Punch revolution!
Buy The Gathering!
Very shrewd. And well done.
Agreed that this is smart stuff.
