Small But Mighty
We knew Americans had a short attention span, but this is ridiculous. In a recent poll, just six percent of people named the Iraq and
Afghanistan wars as the nation's most pressing issue; 63 percent named the economy. Guess that explains why Obama's impromptu trip to Iraq is being touted as a helpful reminder to people there's still a war going on there. Note to the mainstream press, the president and Congress: The rest of us know.
