Tony Snow's Lack of Grasp of History

White House Press secretary Tony Snow demonstrated his lack of understanding of U.S. history when he offered these comments last night on CNN:
If somebody had taken a poll in the Battle of the Bulge, I dare say people would have said, wow, my goodness, what are we doing here?
I think Americans--then and now--are smarter than Tony Snow understands.
The Battle of the Bulge, which represented Nazi Germany's last counterattack, began 1,102 days after Pearl Harbor. It had been only 193 days after allied forces landed at Normandy.
In contrast, it has been 1,742 days since 9/11 and 1,145 days since Mission Accomplished Day.
It has been a year since Dick Cheney declared that the insurgency was "in the last thoes."
