The problem with the whole PR surge is that Bush has lied CONSTANTLY about the situation in Iraq for YEARS. And everyone except the Supine Press Corps knows it.
And the rosy scenario he's spinning now is totally at odds with the statements of independent organizations like the GAO. So why would Americans believe HIM when he has almost never been honest about Iraq for 6 years now?
I mean, he told us that things were looking up in Iraq 4 years ago. And 3 years ago. And 2 years ago. And last year.
Simple question: does anybody believe that if the situation in Iraq had NOT improved - that we would actually be told that?
As usual, the Adman-In-Chief is focusing on Public Relations instead of reality.
