Smilin' Norm Coleman: Deadlines for deadlines

Posted by: Hammer / 8:59 AM

Smilin' Norm is against deadlines for Iraq. But he does seem to be signaling that he might change his mind in August or September:

His comments underscored a growing belief that congressional Republicans are focused on August (or early September.) Coleman’s comments are consistent with the growing rumor that GOPers who have held ranks behind Bush’s Iraq policy will start to bail unless Petraeus can deliver serious progress by August. If not, saith Coleman, “we’ll have to talk about an alternative course of action.”

Note that this is Eric Black reading between the lines rather than providing straight reporting. I think we're seeing Coleman reserve the right to commit to deadlines in the fall, but continue to play the "Iraq is swell" card. The only question left is whether Norm and his Republican companions have a miracle card left in the deck or if they are already drawing dead.
