Karl Rove does Hardball:
GREGORY: But if you’re talking about the number of troops necessary, the level of American casualties, the force and intensity of the insurgencyâ€¦did the president mislead the American people about the cost of the war or was he just simply surprised by what happened?
ROVE: I would go back to the presidentâ€™s statements over the last several years and I would defy you to find one speech which he talked about Iraq where he doesnâ€™t say there would be difficult times ahead, that we had a long road to hope that a great deal of sacrifice was going to be called for by both the American people and by the Iraqis to achieve this goal.
But…but…it says… Oh. Never mind.
