[Beating Dead Horses]
President George W. "I Am the Decider!" Bush is delaying until some time in January his planned report to the nation on the direction he and aides are charting for the United States in Iraq. Meanwhile the American soldier death toll in Iraq is nearing 3000, tens of thousands of Americans injured, and reports of upwards of 500,000 dead Iraqis. But hey, what's another month... listen to what even CNN is saying now about "The Decider!"

The president, White House press secretary Tony Snow said, "decided, frankly, it's not ready yet," even though most of the internal debates "have kind of been ironed out."

Bush is in the midst of high-profile, but private, discussions on how to overhaul the campaign to end the sectarian violence in Iraq. He had planned a national address by the end of next week.

The delay means that if Bush opts for an increase in the roughly 140,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, as some experts have advocated, he will not unveil it just before the winter holidays.
