"President" George W. Bush is delaying his speech detailing his new strategy for Iraq until early 2007. There could be any number of reasons for this.
One: He still doesn't have a strategy to announce. He hasn't had one for almost four years, so why should he have one now?
Two: He can't announce that the troops will be home by Christmas until after this Christmas.
Three: A speech now would cut into his vacation, so he has to run back to West Texas. There's brush to be cut.
Four: The electronic box under his suit that feeds him speeches is on the fritz.
Five: Dick Cheney hasn't made up his mind yet. He's a quandary, because someone finally gave him what-for on the subject of Iraq, and someone with more pull in the oil biz -- King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
Six: The family intervention by the Iraq Study Group didn't take and Bush is laid up with a bad case of Jack Daniels.
Seven: All of the above. Whatever the reasons, the decider is the avoider and Congress should be the impeachers.
