THERE WERE SOME WHO SAID....The UN approved a resolution on the transfer of power in Iraq today. President Bush commented thusly:

There were some who said we'd never get one.

Is this his new favorite phrase? It seems like "There were some who said" keeps popping up all over the place.

But who was it that said this? A commenter at DU? An op-ed writer in the Guardian? I mean, it's a nice way of pretending that he's triumphed over enormous odds and all, but getting a Security Council resolution isn't exactly unprecedented. And maybe my memory is faulty, but I don't remember a huge chorus of naysayers suggesting it could never happen.

Who is this mysterious "some," anyway? Donald Rumsfeld?
