Are you interested in hearing the president’s new policies on Iraq?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on January 9, 2007
“I think everybody already knows what they’re to be. I think he’s going to increase the number of troops, and that’s not what people want to see. They want a diplomatic approach first and only increase the troops if we have to.”
“Not really. I’m kind of sick of him. I don’t understand his reasoning in light of the Iraq Study Group’s report.”
“Sure. I’m interested to hear what he has to say and to keep up on the politics of the situation.”
“No. I think it’s beyond the point where initiating a new policy will help. I think it’s like trying to melt an iceberg, and adding more heat isn’t going to make a big enough difference. It needs to be more than just sending more troops.”
