Read this link, please, and tell me if I cut and pasted the following correctly.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, one of the most strident opponents of the administration, said yesterday that President Bush deserved credit for what seems to be a tentative awakening of democracy in the region [the Middle East, especially Lebanon].Sorry. I still can’t believe it. Maybe Senator Kennedy (D-MA) has a twin, because six weeks ago, only days before the Iraqi election, he said this:
''What's taken place in a number of those countries is enormously constructive," the Massachusetts Democrat said on the ABC news program ''This Week."
''It's a reflection the president has been involved."
''We have reached the point that a prolonged American military presence in Iraq is no longer productive for either Iraq or the United States," he said, calling for a phased US withdrawal and comparing the ongoing involvement in Iraq with the quagmire the United States found itself in a generation ago in Vietnam.”Pinch me.
