According to the Washington Post, two in three Americans disagree with the 21,500 troop surge, and 53% say we need to set a deadline for withdrawing US forces from Iraq. In addition, 67% said they disapproved with the handling of the war, and 64% said that the war in Iraq was not worth fighting. Bush’s approval rating stayed constant in the mid 30s.
With the Senate now turning back the clock in an attempt take away the power given to Bush and the executive branch back in 2002 in order to go to war, and a non-binding resolution opposing the troop surge recently passed by the House of Representatives, things are looking good. People seem to have confidence in the Democratic party, and are slowly starting to realize the corruption and incompetence rampant in the Bush administration. We may have a ways to go before impeachment, but it’s certainly a big improvement.
