Psst, George! Stick to the script! Somebody really needs to get these guys a script. Yesterday on FOX, Newt Gingrich tried to save Bush’s ass by saying that it would be "silly" to argue that the war on terror could be won, conveniently ignoring Bush’s previous statements on the matter.

FOX News Channel contributor and former Republican speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Senator John Kerry would be "really silly" to argue that he could "win the war on terror." But President George W. Bush made precisely that claim just one month before he contradicted himself on August 30, saying, "I don't think you can win it."
Well I guess that Bush is a silly, silly man, because this is the news today:
President Bush tried today to stop the political fallout over his comments last weekend that the war on terror might not be winnable. Indeed, "we will win" that war, Mr. Bush told the national convention of the American Legion in Nashville. "We meet today in a time of war for our country, a war we did not start yet one that we will win," Mr. Bush said. He spoke on the second day of the Republican National Convention in New York City, where Mr. Bush will deliver his nomination-acceptance speech on Thursday.
