How's that surge working out?

Six months after the surge was announced, how's it going? Apparently not so good. Today Bush attempted to spin the surge as some sort of victory, but all evidence points to the contrary. Since Mission Accomplished, nearly 3500 troops have been killed almost 600 of them since the surge announcement. There is also a large number of contractor deaths and the Iraqi civilian death toll is absolutely staggering. The democratic congress continues to twiddle its thumbs, leaving our troops in harms way while they attempt to capitolize politically on the deteriorating situation. Time to throw them all out? Except Ron Paul of course.
