Ron Byers states the obvious, albeit most cleverly:
I here tell that President Bush is an old pilot. Let me tell you a bromide my old flight instructor told me. A pilot is in a world of hurt if "he runs out of airspeed, altitude and ideas all at the same time." According to my old instructor that situation meant the pilot was about to put a down payment on the farm right beneath his wings.Well when it comes to Iraq, our pilot-president and his entire administration have run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas all at the same time. Folks, we are all passengers. I hope we all like farm down below. Mission accomplished?
