This passed almost entirely unnoticed, but it's important. Late yesterday House GOP leader John Boehner was interviewed by CNN, and he appeared to set a deadline for President Bush to show that his "surge" strategy will succeed. He was asked the following question: "How long can you and your membership give the President and give the Iraqi military before you say, `You know what? You're not doing your job.'?" Boehner's answer: "I think it'll be rather clear in the next sixty to ninety days as to whether this plan's going to work."

So what will Boehner's stance be after those 60- 90 days are up? Will he invoke a Friedman call for another 60 - 90 days?
