Just Do It?

1) What is the "job" that President Bush is referring to in the quote below?

2) Is Bush waffling around, or is he being consistent with his previous reasons and the resulting policies regarding why the US is fighting in Iraq? (Not the original "Weapons of Mass Destruction" reason, but the more recent one, I think it's about Saddam or democracy or terrorists or something.)

President Bush said:

Mr. Bush, in discussing at a news conference on Oct. 11 the meaning of the phrase “stay the course,” also refused to be pinned down.

“Stay the course means keep doing what you’re doing,” he said. “My attitude is, don’t do what you’re doing if it’s not working; change.”

He added: “Stay the course also means don’t leave before the job is done. And that’s — we’re going to get the job done in Iraq. And it’s important that we do get the job done in Iraq.

=== end quote ===
