Bush Trying to Win Over Americans on Iraq

As public support for his Iraq policy declines, President Bush is working to convince wary Americans that he has a military and political strategy for success in the war in which 1,730 U.S. troops have been killed.
emphasis mine

Ok, so instead of telling people over and over again how you have a strategy, why not tell people clearly what that strategy is, and not change it next week? And while you're at it, explain how that strategy in any way resembles the crap you sold to the American people in order to get us in to this was in the first place.

"The Iraqi people are growing in optimism and hope," Bush said. "They understand that the violence is only a part of the reality in Iraq."

Am I the only one who thinks it's incredibly presumptuous and insulting for him to speak for the Iraqi people?
