An animated President Bush denied to reporters today at a White House press conference that his belief that Iraq would descend into chaos is based on what a little bird told him. “That is preposterous, and besides, birds don’t talk,” he asserted.

Reports out of the White House, seeking to distance the President from previous positions based on “what my gut tells me,” sought to portray the President as listening more. Advisor Bruce Bartlett, however, openly balked at the expectation he might
be looking at actual evidence. “Still, its a strefch to say this is all based, just, on what a little bird tells him.”

Many await unveiling of his new way forward in Iraq after the first of the year.
