"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Stein, LA Times and Hugh Hewitt revisited...

Just moments ago I wrote.

After viewing the piece again, I noticed the poll the LA Times has up on their site. Did they set this guy up? How many from the Left Coast support this guy and feel he is being unjustly attacked for his views?

Can you oppose the war in Iraq and still support U.S. troops?

Yes, the U.S. has a volunteer army, but they were not the decision-makers in going to war.
No, if you believe the war is wrong then all participants involved share the blame.
I don't know. Why did you hire Joel Stein again?

At this time 60.5% believe YES

ps. to quote Stein from his article with regard to our guilt: "who failed to object to a war we barely understood," many of those who don't understand this war are willfully remaining ignorant.
