Bush passes Iraq costs to successor

Way to support the troops!

Bush, before:

“I believe it is the job of a President to confront problems, not pass them on to future Presidents and future generations.”

Bush, now:

The White House confirmed Wednesday that its new budget next month will not request a full year’s funding for the war in Iraq, leaving the next president and Congress to confront major cost questions soon after taking office in 2009.

Finding these kinds of contradictions in the political world is easy, like pledges made before and after marriage. Still, what occurred between those times you cite seems so wrongheaded and tragic.
