Questioning Bush’s Truthfulness

QUESTIONING BUSH’S TRUTHFULNESS….We’re always happy to pass on bad poll news for President Bush here at Calpundit:

Most Americans believe President Bush either lied or deliberately exaggerated evidence that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in order to justify war, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The survey results, which also show declining support for the war in Iraq and for Bush’s leadership in general, indicate the public is increasingly questioning the president’s truthfulness….

Hey, the declining support is even for the right reason: you can’t trust a word that comes out of the guy’s mouth. Isn’t that nice?

On another note, when asked who would do a better job of fighting terrorism, the split was 53% for Bush and 37% for Kerry. That’s a 16% spread, which I think is down from about 30 points several months ago. It’s too early for this be very meaningful, but considering the importance of national security in this election it’s still encouraging news.
