State of the Union

President Bush gave his State of the Union address tonight. Democratic Senator Jim Webb of Virginia gave his party's response. Several domestic issues were discussed including federal spending, health care, and energy. However, the address focused on the global situation, particularly the war in Iraq.

Ultimately, the words of the President or of his critics won't matter. It will be the results of the new strategy. Jack Kelly of RealClearPolitics asks if the 'surge' strategy is already showing results. It's too early to say whether the developments cited in the article are signs of eventual victory or whether that hope is wishful thinking. However, there is a side of the story here you probably have not heard much of from Old Media sources.
