Even eight mentions of the name of David Petraeus during Bush’s last speech weren’t enough to convince the American public. Only 35% of Americans believe St. David.
And who can blame them?
From CNN’s Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer: Republican Senator Cornyn was asked to respond to a comment from fellow Republican Senator Chuck Hagel. Senator Hagel strongly criticized President Bush’s Iraq policy, going so far as to call it a “dirty trick.”
It’s time Bush realised the public is sick and tired of being insulted.
