Iowa True Blue: Quagmire
Excerpted from this post at Iowa True Blue
There is a minority of Americans -- a minority, to be sure, but a substantial one -- which actually approves of the job President Bush is doing in Iraq. This fantasy has taken many forms: some believe the "liberal media" is downplaying good news and emphasizing carnage; others think critics of the war (which has, of course, included many prominent Republicans) are overly pessimistic; and still others simply put blind partisanship over the truth, no matter what, no matter how serious the issue. What a shock these last couple days must be to those who think President Bush is doing a good job fighting the war in Iraq.
