Live-blogging Bush's news conference

From NBC's Chuck Todd
I am listening since I have to be an anchor buddy....

He punted on the Iran question, bought time by vamping on press interest

Sectarian violence... More casualties.... Every quarter we talk about that

Surge isn't done!?!?!?

Troops aren't all there? So he acknowledges a September deadline...

Need a "different configuration" his phrase for "redeployment" iraq study group "appeal to me."

Beef!

Acknowledged being warned tacitly about iran and Al Qaeda influecne... Didn't say but didn't deny it.

Called those who don't see this as a "war on terror" as naïve.
