BUSH: I don't see how you can lead this country in a time of war, in a time of uncertainty, if you change your mind because of politics.

That was then (last Friday's Debate).

This is now (today's LA Times)...

The Bush administration plans to delay major assaults on rebel-held cities in Iraq until after U.S. elections in November, say administration officials, mindful that large-scale military offensives could affect the U.S. presidential race.
...
"When this election's over, you'll see us move very vigorously," said one senior administration official involved in strategic planning, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"Once you're past the election, it changes the political ramifications" of a large-scale offensive, the official said. "We're not on hold right now. We're just not as aggressive."

It's the credibility, Stupid.
