Bizzarro WorldBush insists everything is fine:
"In Iraq, there's ongoing acts of violence," Bush told a rally in St. Cloud. But he added, "Freedom is on the march."This in spite of the ominous warning from the intelligence community:
Reminds me of Nero fiddling while Rome burned.
Kerry aptly described it as a world of spin:
Bush sure lives in a Bizzarro world, making Pollyanna-ish pronouncements in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. If things are going so well, then how come he asked for $3.46 billion of the Iraq reconstruction fund be diverted to security?
Republican Senators Chuck Hagel and Richard Lugar certainly don't buy the rosy talk:
The bottom line: Iraq is out of control. Yet Bush won't admit it, because being the "war president" is the only thing he can run on.
Well, tough. Iraq is your war, Mr. Bush. You break it, you own it.
Now that you got us into this mess, how will you get us out? Like Senator Joe Biden says, what's the plan?
