Bush Reverses Position on War On Terror...Again

Thank you, Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo and kos of dailykos for links:

"This battle will take time and resolve. But make no mistake about it: we will win."
-- George W. Bush, September 12, 2001

"I don’t think you can win it (i.e., the war on terror). But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world."
-- George W. Bush, August 28th, 2004

"We meet today in a time of war for our country, a war (i.e., the war on terror) we did not start yet one that we will win."
-- George W. Bush, August 31st, 2004

They can nuance their way out of what he said all they want, but the fact is that he has exhibited a clear lack of resolve on the subject that is supposed to be his strong suit.
