Gawd, the Preznit's getting predictable

The only remarkable thing about his "we're-escalating-troops-so-too-bad-if-you-don't-like-it" speech was how remarkably dull it was and how dull-eyed and inept the Commander-in-Chimp appeared. In fact, this whole administration and the whole right-wing echo chamber are starting to induce yawns and eye rolls now. They keep saying the same shit over and over. Have they listened to themselves talk?

Olbermann offers his analysis: "And after all of that, today it is his credibility versus that of generals, diplomats, allies, Republicans, Democrats, the Iraq Study Group, past presidents, voters last November, and the majority of the American people."

At this point, the Preznit should give up hope of pinning his preznential legacy on Situation FUBAR. He should instead cut his losses and begin plans for a gradual withdrawal, spending the next two years in a state of lame-duckery as an impotent figure. It's really the best possible outcome for him and the rest of the country.
