does anyone think that bush will keep his word this time?

Bush Said He Would Withdraw U.S. Forces If The Iraqis Asked
On Monday, Iraqi political leaders called on the U.S. to set a timetable for withdrawal. In January, President Bush said that if asked by the Iraqis, U.S. forces would leave the country:

President Bush said in an interview on Thursday that he would withdraw American forces from Iraq if the new government that is elected on Sunday asked him to do so, but that he expected Iraq’s first democratically elected leaders would want the troops to remain as helpers, not as occupiers.

Bush has now been asked to withdraw. Will he stick to his word?

(Think Progress) and more
It's not like bush is known for being honest or for keeping his word in the past (wasn't he going to fire anyone involved with the Plame leak?).....
Man, if bush didn't have this war - regardless of the fact that the majority of the country (and the world) now thinks that this war is a disaster - what would he have? He wants this power - he's not going to give it up without a fight!
