"Prebuttal" To Bush's Speech Tonight

The Center for American Progress has released this "prebuttal" to Bush's planned speech to the nation on Iraq tonight, where he is expected to say that he will "listen" to the recommendations of Gen. Petraeus and have 5,700 troops home by the end of this year and 24K by next spring.

Nancy Pelosi has issued a statement that Bush's policy is just more of the same and asks "Which slogan will we hear tonight?" Sen. Jack Reed (RI) will give the official Democratic response. John Edwards will have a response airing on MSNBC. And Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews will have post-speech analysis on MSNBC.
