News Flash: Kerry reads newspapers!

From the fabulous "'Steve Schmidt issued the campaign's response: "John Kerry has no vision for fighting and winning the War on Terror, so he is basing his attacks on the headlines he wakes up to each day.'"

This, in reference to today's breaking story about all sorts of high grde explosives (that may have been used for car bombs by the Iraqi insurgents) being looted from an unguarded ammo-dump after we toppled Saddam's regime. Now, there's tons of interesting things to explore in this story -- including why we haven't heard about it before today when it happened over a year ago.

Kerry has rightly criticized Bush for not planning for the fall of Hussein's regime. And the Bush response is that Kerry is just reacting to the day's headlines?

I guess that the Bushies need to be reminded that the headlines are the result of the administration's policy in Iraq. Were things going well, maybe Bush's aides and campaign workers could pick up the morning paper without a sense of dread. But, this is the reality they've created. The rest of us, we just get to read about it.

Actually, the fortunate among us get to read about it. Iraqis have to live with it. And military families have to worry for their loved ones and, all too often mourn their losses.

So, sorry we have to read the papers, Mr. President. We would all prefer to see some good news. But, this is what you've wrought.
