Sen. Jim Webb gets tangled up in own words

Hat tip to Reverse Spin. Newly elected Senator Jim Webb of Virginia was chosen by the Democrats to give the party's official response to last night's state of the union address.

"Not one step back from the war against international terrorism. Not a precipitous withdrawal that ignores the possibility of further chaos," said Webb. "But an immediate shift toward strong regionally based diplomacy, a policy that takes our soldiers off the streets of Iraq’s cities and a formula that will in short order allow our combat forces to leave Iraq."

So which one is it, Jim? "Precipitous withdrawal?" Or leaving Iraq "in short order."

And you'd think I guy who has written a few books would be able to choose his words better.
