  1. Sounds like something Rummy would say

  2. Senator Arlen Specter said something intriguing the other day when asked what recommendations he would make for improving Senate procedures. He suggested, sotto voce, that Senators should work longer. By his account, Senators start their week mid-dayTuesday with luncheon meetings and by Thursday afternoon they are itching to get back to their home states. By Friday most of them have fled the Capital City for Reagan Airport. To backup this plaint, the offical numbers are now in: The Senate met for a meager 126 days during the past legislative year; the House met for a paltry 93 days. We shan’t say this is a “Do Nothing” Congress reminiscent of President Truman’s complaint made years ago. But it seems true indeed that legislators have been presiding over a “Do little” Congress.

  3. It’s pretty clear: if Americans give the mission their support for an unlimited amount of time, w we will eventually win. We can’t be beaten on the battlefield. Only in the press and public opinion.

  4. Adam,

    A major problem with the formulation is that that isn’t unlimited time nor is there unlimited support.

    Further: a major part of your interpretation is that this isn’t just a battlefield issue. If it was, we would, in fact, be winning.
