Byron York: the White House is panicking people actually expect progress Bush has never faced this in his whole life
Russert: why does Reid hate America
E. J. Dionne: John McCain criticized General McLellan in the Civil War so he can't talk - but Bush will never ever leave Iraq we should talk about that
O'Beirne: Reid is dumb because Petraeus is very honest and the report will be an accurate whitewash
Tim: what happens in September

O'Beirne: Bush's relationship with the wingnuts reminds me of all my bad marriages the little things start to irritate you like that constant breathing in and out
Russert: Scooter will get out of jail free card if Bush uses his plenary powers?
O'Beirne: Bush can't pass Go but will collect $200,000
Dionne: bush is in a no-wins situation if he pardon him he supports a crook who ruined the CIA if he doesn't the wingnuts will have a tantrum
Robinson: oh i hope he does the Dems will run with it
