Before the speech ALL the MSM talking heads were touting negative poll numbers on Iraq (as if they weren't mixed, but were uniformly BAD!) and saying that Bush had to give a GREAT speech.
Then Bush delivered a GREAT speech, and ALL the talking heads on the MSM said that speeches don't count; they said "facts on the ground - outside of Bush's control - would determine how the American public feels about Iraq."
Sheesh: can these Left-wingers EVER argue WITHOUT moving the goal-posts!?!?
