Carol Platt Liebau: Congress' Approval Lower Than Bush's

Congress' Approval Lower Than Bush's

At least, that's what Gallup is reporting.

What's more, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, a solid majority of Americans oppose cutting and running in Iraq before the country is stabilized.

Both findings lend credence to the suspicion that the Democrats have misinterpreted their supposed mandate of 2006. They say the public was telling them to end the war, essentially at any cost; it doesn't appear that that's the case.

What did these dolts expect? They’ve undermined our war effort; put our soldiers at risk; provided aid and comfort to our enemies; and, accomplished absolutely nothing else of any value. It’s a wonder that their numbers are not in the negative range.

The American public wants to win. The American public is willing to believe that the Middle East can be a place of peace.

However, the American public had grown weary of all the negative stories coming from Iraq, thanks to the Democrats and their MSM publicity wing.

So the American public voted for change. The change they wanted was from allegedly negative results to verifiably positive results. And you know what? That's a reasonable request.

Any reasonable person would have understood what the American public wanted. It appears Bush, being quite the reasonable sort, understood this and made changes to accomodate the wishes of the American public.

It has been a very long time since liberal Democarats have been reasonable. So it's no surprise that they grossly misinterpreted the desire of the American public. Therefore, they foolishly and harmfully rushed headlong with their ridiculous plans for defeat - consequences be damned.

The truly sad and revealing thing about this whole thing is that the Democrats seem genuinely unable to grasp how the American public could possibly desire victory when the Imperial Democratic Leadership has decreed from on high that this war is already lost.

There's something fishy going on here. I have a feeling someone has misinterpreted the polls or is interpreting the wrong questions.

The latest Gallup report has the President's approval/disapproval rating at 33/62. Source

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll early on in May for Congress showed an approval/disapproval rate of 49/44. Moreover it also showed a 51-37 approval rate in terms of being glad that the Democrats are in Congress.Source

I don't subscribe to conspiracy theories about networks and corporations deliberately lying in poll reporting, so there must be something else going on here. It's not a case of Gallop being wrong and CNN being right - they're probably both right but the question being asked is different.
