FT.com Home US: US President George W. Bush said on Tuesday he will campaign for re-election next year by arguing that "the world is more peaceful and more free under my leadership".
... You have GOT to be kidding. He's going to campaign on the concept that the world is more peaceful while presiding over an occupation that's bloodier than the actual war was.
Good grief, this administration is so irony-impaired that it's not even funny. Surely someone in the administration is telling him, "You know, Mr President, this just isn't a good idea. Maybe -- MAYBE -- in a few years the world will be more peaceful and calm as a result of the Recent Unpleasantness, but this certainly is not that day. This would be a bad campaign strategy, they're going to rake you over the coals and you'll deserve every minute of it. Just Say No! to the World Peace campaign!"
But he didn't, and now he's stuck with it.
And, of course, he announced it the day of some of the deadliest civilian attacks by the terrorists.Posted by iain at October 28, 2003 11:40 PM
