Bush has been touting his "surge" option, and reiterating his commitment to his currentplan in Iraq and, apparently, his inability to recognize that things need to change. He tends to be relatively tone-deaf, and repeated the same arguments when speaking to the house Democrats during their annual retreat. But...

Later, in a question-and-answer session that was closed to the public, Democrats questioned Bush about the war. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters afterward, "The president really stood his ground on Iraq" during the session.

Asked if she was disappointed by his stance, she replied, "Disappointment is attached to expectation. . . . I knew what to expect." TimeRichmond
