What the President is talking about is we are eager to get those accomplishments as quickly as possible, for obvious reasons, so that the Iraqis are in the lead and at some point you are in a position to be able to do these so-called over-the-horizon activities and, at the same time, not create a power vacuum that's going to make it easier for al Qaeda or for terrorists to come in and not only destroy what's going on in Iraq, but also to make it a safe haven for terrorism and a source of a greater danger and instability not only in the Middle East, but throughout the world.” 

-White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, June 26, 2007 

                Over The Horizon

          Lyrics (perhaps) by Tony Snow 

Somewhere over the horizon

Way far away

There’s an end that I’m sure of

Once Iraqis save the day

Somewhere over the horizon

Skies aren’t blue

And the terrors that we use to scare you

Really could come true

 

Some day I’ll sit upon a beach

And wake up where the White House is far behind me

Where troubles melt like Democrats

Away above the press room chats

That’s where you’ll find me

 

Somewhere over the horizon

Danger lies

Danger lies over the horizon

Why, oh why would I lie?

 

Some day I’ll sit upon a beach

And wake up where the White House is far behind me

Where troubles melt like Democrats

Away above the press room chats

That’s where you’ll find me

 

Somewhere over the horizon

Danger lies

Danger lies over the horizon

Why, oh why would I lie?

 

If scary little terrorists lie

Beyond the horizon

Why, oh why would I lie?
