Bush, before:

"I believe it is the job of a President to confront problems, not pass them on to future Presidents and future generations."

Bush, now:

The White House confirmed Wednesday that its new budget next month will not request a full year’s funding for the war in Iraq, leaving the next president and Congress to confront major cost questions soon after taking office in 2009.

Typical.
