A general time horizon for meeting aspirational goals

By Creature

First the Bush administration appeases Iran by sending delegates and opening up offices and now they are cutting-and-running from Iraq with their new "general time horizon for meeting aspirational goals" deal with Maliki.

As Josh Marshall says: "Keep an eye out here for a concerted Bush-McCain push to take Iraq off the table for the election. They declare victory, say we'll be out in no time. So what's to argue about?"

Less to argue about, yes, but with a diffused foreign policy environment won't the American people feel secure? And, with security on the world front, won't they be more open to consider Obama? Bush-McCain may have a plan, but I'm not so sure it won't backfire.
