Bush Meets with Aides; Stresses Iraq Commitment

I like the title that NPR currently has on it homepage for this article more than the title given when you click on it (Bush Huddles with Aides on Iraq Strategy).

Obviously, it's a great play on words, with "stresses" having a slang meaning.

Yeah, he's sweatin'.

Something that's also interesting is the photo they used, or rather the two photos:

Photo 1

Photo 2

There's always something very disturbing the way the Bush folks lay themselves out for photo ops. In the first photo, you've got the typical Bush cock of the head and arms and hands outstreached. You can almost see him pushing down his own hot air with his hands, as though he's trying to calm a situation.

As we all know, of course, they've been trying to fix their mess for several years now, and no arm waving is going to help.

What I like most about the second photo is how most of the people in the front line, including Cheney and the two men flanking the front row. You can't even see Don Rumsfeld's hands...which suggests to me that he's hiding something.
