The Results of Bush's Surge

I found this at Iraq Coaltion Casualties:
U.S. Deaths Confirmed By The DoD: 3287
Reported U.S. Deaths Pending DoD Confirmation: 7
Total 3294

The Air Force Times is reporting the following--

Air Force planes and medical crews airlifted more than 850 wounded and injured servicemen out of war zones during March, according to the Air Force. In February, the Air Force flew out 767 patients.....

>> Now the administration is looking for a "war czar." Apparently, some high-ranking military officials have already turned down the job. If everyone in this administration was doing their damn job, then we wouldn't need a "war czar." They are just looking for someone to blame instead of the president. The people in this administration overestimated the time and the human and financial costs of invading Iraq. They had no plan for getting out when they went into Iraq and they still don't have a plan! The entire administration is filled with less than the best and the brightest our country has to offer.

Take for example the 150 "law school" graduates the administration got from evangelist Pat Robertson. Many have no real legal or prosecuting experience but there they are making decisions on civil rights, personal freedoms, and laws. This particular "law school" was only accredited in 1999. Has anyone asked how many of the "lawyers" from Regent Law School attended the school before, during, or immediately after it was accredited?

We have a Secretary of State who refuses to meet with certain country's leaders. Obviously, they've never heard of diplomacy. Entire continents and countries are being ignored by this administration. Can you imagine the allies and friends this country has lost?

The Senate and the House of Representatives must stand up and say "NO" to the president. He can't have anymore blank checks like the Republicans gave him.
