Iraq on "Righter" Track Than US (and your point is?)

Bush Shrugs Off Bad Polls on Iraq Outlook
WASHINGTON - President Bush on Thursday shrugged off polls that suggest most Iraqis see Americans as occupiers not liberators. "I saw a poll that said the 'right track-wrong track' in Iraq was better than here in America," he told reporters.

Iraq's right-track/wrong-track numbers may, as Bush suggests, be better than those for the United States, but, as the graph indicates, this isn't necessarily any great claim. The percent dissatisfied in the US is nearly as high as at any time since Sep-11, 2001. It's also higher than it was on Sep-10, 2001, at which time it was higher than at any time in the preceding four years.
