Years of Iraq 'Progress,' Yet the Violence Goes On

Jon Stewart's Daily Show is played for laughs, of course, but sometimes the political truth is all too obvious. Stewart ran a video compilation recently of the President's pronouncements on our "success" in Iraq.

Here are the President's exact words:

Bush, January 2006: "There's progress. And it's important progress and it's an important part of our strategy to win in Iraq."

Bush, November 2005: "Iraq is making incredible political progress."

Bush, October 2005: "Iraqis are making inspiring progress."

Bush, September 2005: "Iraq has made incredible political progress."

Bush, April 2005: "I believe we're making good progress in Iraq."

Bush, March 2005: "We're making progress."

Bush, September 2004: "We're making steady progress."

Bush, July 2003: "We're making progress. It's slowly but surely making progress."

Our question: How much more "progress" can we stand?
