Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that he's gonna get lucky enough to take Reality home. Germany's Spiegel does a little round up of Bush's latest attempt to appear in control of Iraq.

Spiegel:

President Bush has conceded that the US is not winning the war in Iraq. His reponse? Send in more troops to finish a job few believe can be done militarily.

[..]The German financial daily Handelsblatt writes:

"Six weeks after the defeat of Bush's Republicans, it is becoming clear how the president has interpreted the elections: Not as a demand to withdraw from Iraq, rather as a signal to follow the same path unrelentingly. Bush doesn't talk about victory any more, but that doesn't mean that he is going to give up Iraq. [..]

According to the center-left Süddeutsche Zeitung:

[..]"Bush is resisting the unavoidable -- and is still far from viewing the Iraq war was a huge strategic mistake that cannot be corrected militarily. The president will be in the White House for another two years. It seems that he wants to use that time to prove to the world that he was right all along."
