As the War Turns
Today's good news: W's failings finally sink in.
The headlines this morning are clear: The public's disapproval of the President's handling of the Iraq war has reached a new high—71 percent.
It's about time. The Iraq Study Group this week laid bare the Administration's lies, distortions, cover-ups, and general incompetence in starting and executing the war.
This kind of news restores our confidence in the American public. Bush couldn't fool all the people all the time, and his reputation is (deservedly) in tatters. Even in Republican Tulsa, we suspect the Bush star has tarnished.
Sadly, our fighting men and women have had to pay the price for W's mistakes.
