150,000 Hostages

Would anyone care about the State of the Union speech if the President weren’t holding 150,000 Americans hostage in Iraq?

The lamest of lame ducks, with rock-bottom approval ratings, facing a hostile Congress, his credibility unraveling at the Scooter Libby trial, the public focusing more and more on 2008, why would anyone want to hear Bush distract us with a domestic agenda?

How do you deal with a hostage-taker whose only demand is to let him keep doing what he’s doing?
