Depths of Difficulty

The truth is that Karl Rove is probably right, and Republican whiners are quite wrong. The White House is not in any difficulty with respect to Iraq. That would only be the case if a significant number of Republicans thought that doing the right thing was more important than fealty to Dear Leader. But that isn't the case, and it isn't likely to be the case. The White House will keep doing what it's doing, Republicans will fail to join with Democrats to oppose them, the occupation of Iraq will continue, Republicans will lose many House and Senate seats, and, with a little luck, the presidency.

It isn't the White House that fails to understand the "depths of difficulty" they're in, it's Republicans in Congress.
