Bragging Rights

Posted by Rick · September 24th, 2004 · No Comments

Frankly, one of my big beefs with Bush is that I don’t understand him.

President Bush on Thursday countered gloomy assessments of the situation in Iraq by citing a survey that suggested that Iraqis were more upbeat about their future than Americans were about theirs.

“I saw a poll that said the right track/wrong track in Iraq was better than here in America,” Bush said in a Rose Garden appearance with Iraq’s interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi. Bush: Poll Shows Iraqis More Upbeat Than Americans, Reuters, ¶ 1-2 (September 23, 2004), last visited September 24, 2004.

Call me “stupid,” but I don’t think I’d be bragging about that. At least I wouldn’t be bringing it to the attention of the very people from whom I seek votes. Or maybe he’s actually running for the Iraqi Presidency….

On the other hand, as this political cartoon shows, he does have a tough time knowing where to put his focus.

Special thanks to Lying Media Bastards, through whom I found the Danziger cartoon.
