Today, at the White House.
Listen to the Budget!
Our priority is to protect the American people. And our priority is to make sure our troops have what it takes to do their jobs. We also have got priorities in national parks and education and health care. But we have proven, and I strongly believe Congress needs to listen to a budget which has no tax increase, and a budget, because of fiscal discipline, that can be balanced in five years.
What The Meaning Of Is Is
There will be no timetable set. And the reason why is, is because we don’t want to send mixed signals to an enemy, or to a struggling democracy, or to our troops.
Both of Us, The Iraqis and the U.S. and Coalition Forces
Well, General Petraeus is heading to Iraq this week, early this — tomorrow. And my message is, is that both of us, the Iraqis and the U.S. and coalition forces, have got to get this plan in place as quickly as possible. Of course, we want the plan to work, and we want to make sure that the strategy we’ve implemented — or the strategy we’ve outlined is implemented properly.
It’s a good sign that there’s a sense of concern and anxiety.
Take Care To Take Care
And so I listened to a lot of other folks, including our military, and said, look, we got to take care and help these Iraqis take care of the violence inside of Baghdad.
