. . .but only for the USS Abraham Lincoln, not for the war. Another leftish meme gets smashed at the hands of The Captain. Money quote:
Nowhere in this speech did Bush declare that the war was over, nor that we could leave Iraq. In fact, he made it plain that we would stick by the Iraqi people and remain in place until they could establish a democratic government that could secure the nation.
So I guess that means all the “Nothing Accomplished” bumper stickers I see on battered Toyotas and minivans – where the word “Mission” is crossesd out and “Nothing” is scrawled above it – are pointless and moot.
But never let the facts get in the way of a good bumper sticker.
