Desperation Time

Very interesting development coming out of the White House. Seems Ari Fleischer is heading up a group that will be spending big bucks in an ad campaign to cover the President's butt on Iraq. Christy at Firedoglake has all the details but I thought this part was especially interesting.
Mr. Fleischer said the central message of Freedom’s Watch is that “the war in Iraq can be won and Congress must not surrender.” The ads will run as Congress is awaiting the Sept. 15 release of a report from Gen. David Petraeus that will evaluate progress in Iraq.
Christy has dubbed the campaign "Buy George Bush a Legacy" campaign which I think pretty much hits the nail on the head. The thing is that Bush has already built his legacy as the worst president in history it is just that he was hoping for something a little more positive.
