I did not watch President Bush last night. I felt like I already knew the gist of what he was going to say, and couldn't bring myself to listen to him. I feel he has been a poor president, and his commentary on his presidency so far suggest an inability to accept personal responsibility for the decisions he's made.
While reading the comments section on Balloon Juice's open thread of the speech last night, I found the following quote, that I thought was rather poignant: "Murdering the innocent to advance an ideology is wrong every time, everywhere."
How long have we been in Iraq, Freedom-building? How much collateral damage has there been?
