Constructive Criticism

One of the really disheartening things about Bush’s Baghdad Blunder is the fact we’ll be stuck with the consequences for decades beyond the point where Laura Bush holds a press conference at the spread in Crawford to announce W doesn’t remember who he is anymore, much less why he wanted Iraq so bad. The challenge for the Bush opposition now is to offer some constructive ideas for how to do what the reigning boneheads seem incapable of — actually improving the situation in Iraq, if only as a prelude to our saying, “It’s been nice, but now we have to go home and have a nice cold one.” An example of this sort of constructive approach comes from the liberal Center for American Progress, which just put out a list of suggestions for what the U.S. authorities ought to do to deal with the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.
