Catastrophic Success

august 30, 2004

At a campaign stop in West Virginia, US President George W. Bush defended the decision to invade Iraq, calling the campaign a "catastrophic success".
Um...You gonna vote for this Bush guy? Someone explain to me what a "catastrophic success" is. According to Merriam-Webster catastrophic means "a momentous tragic event ranging from extreme misfortune to utter overthrow or ruin". So, is GWB trying to tell us that Iraq was a ruined success?
