If Bush had a major problem, it was his ability (inability) to communicate to the American people just what was happening in Iraq, and what was found. I’m not sure how much he’s to blame and how much the liberal media and congress is to blame.
Any lie that makes it into the media needs to be countered. That was Bush’s fault (for real). He let the accusations go unchallenged for the most part. I don’t recall him going on the tube with a summary of the evidence. Meanwhile every loon in the country was spouting the Bush lied BS.
