GLENN: We ‑‑ hang on. We have to stop for a weather break here.
PAT: Yes. I'm in the weather center right now, Glenn, and apparently there are scattered showers or, as we like to say...
VOICE: And now scattered showers of journalism.
GLENN: Scattered showers of journalism, yes.
PAT: Breaking out in the northeast.
GLENN: Go ahead.
PAT: Breaking out in the northeast some scattered showers of journalism actually broke out at CBS after the president's speech with Bob Schieffer.
SCHIEFFER: Barack Obama took full ownership of the war in Afghanistan. We're going to have 100,000 troops there and more than half of them will have been sent there by the president. I think what you're going to see and what the comment on this speech is going to be all about is, is the strategy itself. How do you on the one hand say we need to send these troops over there, it's critical, this is in our national security interest to do this but then say, "But we're only going to keep them there for 18 months, we're going to start to with withdraw them after 18 months." I just don't understand the logic of how that works.
SCHIEFFER: It seems to me that what the president did last night was try to make the speech have a little something for everybody, for people on the one side who said we need to send these troops over there and get serious about this. But also he was trying to talk to those on the other side who say we shouldn't have done this and we can't let this go on into an endless war.
COURIC: But Bob, isn't it a delicate ‑‑
SCHIEFFER: I don't understand, I don't understand, Katie, how you can set a deadline on what you're going to do and, you know, this is not a football game where there's a clock where the time runs out. To win this war you have to defeat the enemy. How can we say in the beginning that we're going to do that when we don't know what's going to happen?
PAT: Is that amazing?
GLENN: He's, he's... he's mush for brains now. He's so old.
PAT: He didn't know what he was saying?
GLENN: He doesn't even know what he's saying anymore. Good thing Katie was there to take the reins from him.
PAT: Yes, yes.
