Bush manages to be a liar and a weasel at the same time

We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It’s their government’s choice. If they were to say leave, we would leave. –George W. Bush, 24 May 2007

So now that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has asked for a timetable for the withdrawal of US troops, are we going to keep our promise?

Of course not.  The Bush administration has put the talks on hold (read: he’s going to dump this quagmire on the next president’s lap). Then the Republicans will be able to blame whatever happens on the Democrats.
