An hour in the Oval Office with President George W. Bush

Michael Barone's account of an interview President Bush gave yesterday with a few conservative columnists, complete with full audio.

He then argued that we have severely hurt the terrorists–but that as long as we see victory as the absence of strife, the terrorists can convince us that we're not winning by random killing.

"If absence of violence is victory," he said, then nobody can ever make a claim of winning. He made the point he repeated over and over in his press conference this morning that in Iraq our troops are constantly changing tactics even as they persevere in opposing those who are trying to strangle democracy there. He said that he does not pick targets as–pointing to the other end of the Oval Office–Lyndon Johnson once did during the Vietnam War but that he does keep in touch with his commanders daily.
