Bush was right?

A standard talking point for those who opposed the surge -- including Democrats Barack Obama and Joseph R. Biden Jr. -- is that success in Anbar resulted in large part from the turning of Sunni tribes against al-Qaeda, beginning before the surge.

Doesn't this talking point imply that George Bush was right in his pre-surge strategy (i.e., stay the course and eventually things well turn in America's favor)?
