Bush in the Rose Garden Is a President Adrift:
By Margaret Carlson

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- {snip}

It's hard to put a Rose Garden gloss on the continuing violence in Iraq that voters now rank as the No. 1 issue in the November elections. There has been no poll since North Korea became a nuclear member of the axis of evil.

It's a wonder Bush thought that yesterday's press conference could help. Maybe he was only looking to get out his message about taxes and terrorism from the White House as opposed to the campaign trail.

``Democrats will raise taxes,'' he said, and not ``only on rich people,'' but ``whoever they can raise them on.'' That won't matter, of course, if we're all dead, which is Bush's other message. At the hands of Democrats, who unlike him will cut and run, ``the enemy will come after us here.''

If we're all dead, taxes won't much matter but never mind consistency. It's hard to believe that taxes and terror will work again, but as yesterday's press conference shows, it's all the president has got.
