    I've just been hearing too many senators spouting waffle words lately, and I'm a little cranky about it.

    As for how fast we can "responsibly" get out of there...to me, that's the point.  We can't "responsibly" get out of there.  It's three years too late for that.  We could have responsibly begun to withdraw our forces in the fall of 2003, replacing them with various experts who could advise the Iraqis on rebuilding their own infrastructure, and construction equipment and (if they wanted) crews to help them. But we didn't. Now we are just an occupying force, and there is no way to end an occupation "responsibly."

    We just need to end it. Period.
