I Guess It Depends on How You Define "Slow"
Never hesitant about resorting to weasel words, US president George Bush today admitted his first four year adventure in Iraq was a "slow failure" and then proceeded to lambaste those urging quick withdrawal as endorsing "expedited failure." I'm sorry folks, but four years isn't slow failure, it's persistent failure, chronic failure even abject failure and the guy responsible for acheiving that track record may not be the best person to pass judgment on anyone else's alternatives. Then again, you have to give it to the guy, he's got the cojones of a street hustler.
