it's not that Bush went into Iraq that's so bad, is that he was so INCOMPETENT that he unsuccessfully invaded Iraq.

he is INCOMPETENT. he CAN'T GOVERN.

that's the issue. and it's completely independent of popularity.
Not sure if you noticed - but it looks like things have turned for the better in Iraq...

where? how? because there have been a few tactical gains? violence remains at all-time high levels. if we'd made any sort of difference, there'd be political gains as well. nothing has changed in Iraq. the surge has done nothing it was intended to do.

in Iraq, it's all about the political. nothing else matters.

and no talk of "turning a corner" and "last throes" said either today, in 2005 or in 2003, makes a smidgen of difference.

We can imagine how busy Rudy is. Running for president while distorting your record on 9/11, takes a lot of time and energy. So I can't say we were surprised to learn that Rudy (plus Romney, Thompson and McCain) was too busy to attend Thursday night's debate on minority issues hosted by Tavis Smiley.

But where was Rudy going? John Ehrenfeld, a BNF field producer, volunteered to track him down. Turned out he would be right here in Southern California accepting an endorsement from widely discredited Pete Wilson, who's known for exploiting racial division for votes, and pushing the horrible proposition 187. Then off to a $2300-a-plate fundraiser at the Biltmore Four Seasons in Santa Barbara with Bo Derek.


WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John McCain said in an interview published Saturday that he would prefer a Christian president over someone of a different faith, calling it "an important part of our qualifications to lead."

In an interview with Beliefnet, a multi-denominational Web site that covers religion and spirituality, the Republican presidential hopeful was asked if a Muslim candidate could be a good president.

"I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles ... personally, I prefer someone who I know who has a solid grounding in my faith," McCain said. "But that doesn't mean that I'm sure that someone who is Muslim would not make a good president."

Later, McCain said, "I would vote for a Muslim if he or she was the candidate best able to lead the country and defend our political values."

Asked about Republican rivals Mitt Romney's Mormon faith, McCain said, "I think that Governor Romney's religion should not, absolutely not, be a disqualifying factor when people consider his candidacy for president of the United States."

The Arizona senator was also asked about the confusion over which Christian denomination he belongs to. "I was raised Episcopalian, I have attended the North Phoenix Baptist Church for many years and I am a Christian," McCain said. He added that he has considered being baptized in the Baptist church, but he does not want to do it during the presidential race because "it might appear as if I was doing something that I otherwise wouldn't do."

I'm hoping this will be the kiss of death it deserves to be.

And as bad as you think he is - he is TWICE as popular as the Democrat controlled House and Senate.

1. the disapproval of the Congress is due to their inability to stop this debacle in Iraq
2. Congress always, always has low approval ratings
3. disapproval of "Congress" has nothing to do with disapproving of Democrats who rank much, much higher than Republicans on nearly all issues, from health care to education to the war on terror to Iraq.
4. you're changing the conversation again. stick with the issue: Bush sucks and Iraq was a mistake.

Associated Press. October 1st, 2007.

BAGHDAD - Deaths among American forces and Iraqi civilians fell dramatically last month to their lowest levels in more than a year, according to figures compiled by the U.S. military, the Iraqi government and The Associated Press.

The decline signaled a U.S. success in bringing down violence in Baghdad and surrounding regions since Washington completed its infusion of 30,000 more troops on June 15.
