Tell Me Lies

Sweet little lies:

President Bush declared this week that the administration was putting the Baghdad government on notice that it had to make progress in stemming sectarian violence and rebuilding the country. Otherwise, Washington would consider changes to its Iraq policy. And it worked -- at the margins. Almost half of all Americans still believe taking military action in Iraq was a mistake, but the gap between those who say it was and those who say it was the right decision has narrowed: from 54 to 39 last week to 49 to 43 this week -- from a 15-point margin to just six points.

If it was as easy to win wars as it is to hoodwink the voters, our troubles in Iraq would have been over long ago.

"Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people."
