I really didn't got this one. The sentence should have been more clear.

"In Bush" means in Bush's mind i.e., Bush thinks Saddam is his enemy more than his opponent in his own country i.e., his match, so against is correct.

No my friend! Here 'up against' means 'to be confronted with'. It means Saddam faced Bush who was more than someone equal to Saddam.

I really don't understand the sentence.
