I just finished watching part of Kudlow and Co. on CNBC, a show I don't think I've watched before--though I've heard of it.
Larry O'Donnell was saying Bush's numbers are so low that his speeches on terrorism won't make any difference for the Rep candidates he's attempting to help. That was countered a bit by Kudlow who pointed out that Bush's Gallup numbers on terrorism are at 55%.
But then the consensus seemed to be that Iraq is the center of the election and since 'everyone' is negative about Iraq, the Reps will be in trouble in November. Bush's talk about terrorism and guarding against it here won't work--it's about Iraq.
Then it hit me.
Terrorism is about here.
Iraq is about there.
Americans live here.
