Are they finally waking up?

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 — Americans increasingly see the war in Iraq as distinct from the fight against terrorism, and nearly half believe President Bush has focused too much on Iraq to the exclusion of other threats, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

The poll found that 51 percent of those surveyed saw no link between the war in Iraq and the broader antiterror effort, a jump of 10 percentage points since June. That increase comes despite the regular insistence of Mr. Bush and Congressional Republicans that the two are intertwined and should be seen as complementary elements of a strategy to prevent domestic terrorism."

If this trend continues it's bad news for Bush and the GOP, who have been shamelessly playing the fear card for five years now to win elections. You can't put anything past them, or the stupidity of a big chunk of the electorate for falling for their crap, but once in a while the American people see through the fog. Hopefully, this is one of those times.
