Iraq war has Bush in trouble
Iraq war has Bush in trouble
Questions grow about his future as polls show Americans turning against him

By DOUG SAUNDERS
Wednesday, April 7, 2004 - Page A1


~snip~

Yesterday, questions about Mr. Bush's future filled the air in Washington, as the Pentagon considered sending even more troops to fight what has become a deadly two-front war in Iraq and the White House prepared for tomorrow's closely watched testimony by National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice before the commission on the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

"You're starting to hear that 'Q' word: quagmire," he told Reuters News Agency, using a word that came to describe the escalating Vietnam conflict in the 1960s. "The public seems confused: How do we get out? Do we send more troops? How do we cut casualties? It's all becoming a big problem for Bush."

Poll numbers bear out Mr. Zogby's assertion. New polls taken since last week, when television screens showed images of American corpses being dragged through the streets of Fallujah and hung from bridges, found Mr. Bush's approval ratings at an all-time low..

1. can you say 'exit strategy'?
because the republicans sure can't.

war on terror - no conceivable end.
war on iraq - if we don't occupy until the oil wells run dry, what's the point?

4. The poll #'s will scare him more than dead US troopers
He doesn't care about anything other than political motivation. I'll bet you there is more talk in the Oval office today about turning those polls around than anything else.

"Karl, you mean to tell me we raised 200 million and I cant get people to like me?"

"I like you Mr President, but our focus groups say you should never insult a woman, especially about her appearance. What were you thinking?"

"I was thinking about my mommy! What do you want Andy, is it nappy time?"

"Mr. President, Paul Bremer is on the hot line from Iraq again"

"Not right now Andy, we have to deal with Zogby!"

5. Let bu$h's trouble be in poportion
to the misery he has brought on this country. Let there be enough to spare so that everyone who helped him take office can share in the reaping of the Whirlwind. Let all the results of the War on Iraq be delivered unto bu$h.

Let the war dead speak to him; likewise may he hear from the dead of September 11. Let the true fruits now be harvested. May he live to be a thousand!
