"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

CNN.com - Iraq drives Bush's rating to new low - Mar 13, 2006

CNN/USA Today/Gallup have new poll results and CNN has another exciting article based on a poll of 1,001 Americans, which I guess is representative of us.

"Growing dissatisfaction with the war in Iraq has driven President Bush's approval rating to a new low of 36 percent, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday."

Interactive Poll Questions:

"In view of the developments since we first sent our troops to Iraq, do you think the United States made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq, or not?"
57% Yes
42% No
1% No Opinion

Polls are great. Why do 57% feel that way? I realize a poll cannot ask questions like that, but what would the alternative be?

"In general, how would you say things are going for the U.S. in Iraq: very well, moderately well, moderately badly, or very badly?"

38% Well
60% Badly
2% No Opinion

60% responded with "Badly." Are 57% of these people the ones that responded with "yes" it was a mistake to send troops into Iraq? What are the odds of that? If they are the same folks, would one expect any other answer? I'm sure Hollywood could have done better and in only two hours.

"Do you think George W. Bush does -- or does not -- have a clear plan for handling the situation in Iraq?"
32% Yes
67% No
1% No Opinion

67% feel that the president does not have a clear plan for Iraq (see question 1 and 2 above). What is a clear plan? Would a medium or crystal ball be of assistance?

"Do you think the Bush administration deliberately misled the American public about whether Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, or not?"
51% Yes
46% No
3% No Opinion

51% (see questions 1, 2 and 3), still aren't paying attention. Why in this day and age, after all the information that has been passed do people still feel they were misled? This can only be willful buttressed by the msm and leftwing lunacy.

"Two-thirds of those surveyed told pollsters that history will remember Bush most for the March 2003 invasion that toppled Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and the battle against a persistent insurgency that followed the Hussein regime's collapse." The insurgency that is mostly lead by the msm and actors from outside Iraq that do not care one wit for any Iraqi.

On a comical not "Democrats enjoy lead," a 16 point percentage lead against the GOP "when registered voters are asked which party they will support in November." This, thanks to the continuing support and harping of themselves and their friends in the msm; "DeMediacrats." They will likely continue with the tack of offering nothing of substance, while blocking any effort to further reality. This they are convinced will help them make gains in November.
