War happens

Here's my favorite part from this story about the latest presidential poll numbers:

But voters said they trusted Bush more to handle terrorism, 54 percent to Kerry's 38 percent; the situation in Iraq, 49 percent to 43 percent; and taxes, 47 percent to 44 percent.

I love the phrase "the situation in Iraq" as though what's going on there happened on its own, and now the president has to address it. Of course, the president seems to be doing a good job of snookering people into forgetting that this is a war he recklessly started on a dubious premise and then failed to prepare for the aftermath his administration was either too arrogant or too incompetent to foresee.

The president says that your enemies don't attack you because you show strength, but because you show weakness. How strong do we look in Iraq these days?
