Bush and the Truth

BUSH AND THE TRUTH….I have to run off for a few hours, but I thought I’d leave you with this cheerful news:

Americans’ approval of President Bush’s handling of Iraq is at its lowest level yet, according to an AP-Ipsos poll that also suggests fewer than half now think he is honest.

….Approval of Bush’s handling of Iraq, which had been hovering in the low- to mid-40s most of the year, dipped to 38 percent. Midwesterners and young women and men with a high school education or less were most likely to disapprove of Bush on his handling of Iraq in the past six months.

Fewer than half think he’s honest? Goodness. I wonder why?
