The press is already drawing comparisons to Beirut and Somalia…rhetorically asking how long it will be before the U.S. pulls out of Iraq. Just because the media is overwhelmingly left isn’t an excuse for our message not being pushed forth. And before anyone jumps on me about how the administration is telling how dangerous (a buzz term we heard all weekend) Iraq is and will continue to be in this post-war phase, the media is controlling the message. I’ve been unimpressed with the job the administration has done with its post-war message, and it needs to work harder to do a better job of educating the American people in the sacrifices it will take to get the job done.

Despite his unpolished speaking manner, the President is his own best spokesman. Americans trust his judgment, as is evident by their acceptance of even going to war, his tax cuts, the mid-term elections, his poll numbers before and after the war (until this past weekend). He needs to get out front and in the public more – with town hall meetings, visiting coffee shops (and other instances of putting himself with the people), etc. In short, HE needs to take his message to the American people. While Clinton was constantly in the camera eye (all Clinton…all the time), Bush isn’t in it enough.

Americans need to understand that the exit strategy for WWII hasn’t been accomplished (still have troops in Germany). The exit strategy for Korea hasn’t been accomplished (still have troops in S. Korea). The exit strategy for Bosnia hasn’t been accomplished (still have troops in Bosnia). While we don’t want troops in Iraq for decades to come, it will be a long, hard slog…but it’s in our interests to do it right.
