Bush's Changing Message on Iraq

Petulant grabbed video of Anderson Cooper's "Keeping Them Honest" segment, which traces Bush's evolving message from the beginning of the war through last night's "optimistic" speech. It's fun to watch him get increasingly belligerent as he tries to pretend that he's not moving the goalposts. Btw, I love how referring to Bush as "optimistic" has become the media's dog whistle for "Bush is delusional."

(The transcript is here, and begins at the line "BUSH: The success of a free Iraq is critical to the security of the United States.")
