I kind of took Fred Clark at Slacktivist to task yesterday (although not really him per se) but he's got a really good post up today outlining the various pessimistic predicitions concerning Iraq.
What struck me the other day, when President Bush yet again said that things in Iraq were "getting better," is that I don't recall him ever admitting that they were bad in the first place. How can things be getting better when they, supposedly, were never that bad to begin with? Does that mean, oh, I don't know, that you've been lying to us all this time? Or just to yourself?
