John Kerry has the political instincts of Walter Mondale. Is there any wonder he lost the 2004 election?

He decides to announce his “plan” for Iraq during the best news week this year for Bush. Al-Zarqawi was killed. The Iraqi government continues to make positives steps. The “culture of corruption” meme continues to crumble with Democrats being caught and Karl Rove being vindicated. Now this.

Unbeknownst to him, while he is calling for a cut-and-run, pull-out policy in Iraq, President Bush is making a surprise trip to Iraq to encourage the US troops and the fledgling Iraqi government. Was he for the visit before he was against it?
