Bush is a flip flopper

One day he flips about 'staying the course' in Iraq and another day he flops about 'withdraw' troops from Iraq with a proviso that the Iraqi government can take care of itself. He is a dork as he painted himself into a corner in Iraq. It's been nearly 3 years since the 'Mission Accomplished' photo-op.

I think that for political reasons, he had not veered away from the course he had taken in the beginning, vis a vis Iraq. Over time, many citizens realized that we were on a fool's errand over there, at least in the way that the war has been conducted, but he stubbornly refused to budge. When the Republicans were beaten badly in the last election, it finally occurred to him that maybe staying in Iraq indefinitely, was not such a good idea!

The fact that there was a great deal of controversy and polling numbers tanked for support of the war in 2004, that tends to go against your notion that politics is behind Bush's decision to prosecute the war in Iraq. If politics were the main motive, Bush would have cut and run, during the 2004 campaign. As it was, John Kerry relied on Iraq politically as one of the main cornerstones of his campaign.

It is power politics. Polls can't make W do anything only a newly elected Congress that follows the people's wishes. W thinks he is above the people and there to serve him.
