Kevin Drum: If This Is Progress, I’d Hate to See What Failure Looks Like

Kevin Drum at CalPundit makes an apt observation about the latest spin from Bush (in which he said that events in Iraq over the last few days were a sign of “progress,” because the sharp uptick in violence showed that the bad guys are getting desparate): Progress? Drum points out that it wasn’t so much the bad economy that did in Bush’s dad’s presidency, but rather it was the public perception that the president was so out of touch that he didn’t realize, or at least wouldn’t acknowledge, that there was even a problem that needed fixing.

Like father, like son.
