WaPo/ABC News Poll: Americans Want Timeline for Withdrawal From Iraq; Support Putting Conditions on Military

@ 09:12 PM (90 months, 2 days ago)

What part of 'we want out of Iraq' does George Bush not understand?  What part of 'we think your Iraq policy sucks, Mr. President' doesn't he get?

According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, for the very first time, a majority of Americans support having a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq.  Moreover, they support putting conditions on our nation's military, that would in effect limit the number of personnel that would be available to go to Iraq.

The message that the American people are sending is loud and clear.  Unfortunately, this Administration, the Republican minority in Congress, and a few others (read: Joe Lieberman) seem to be tone deaf.

Another interesting snapshot from the poll: only 35% of those polled, said they trust the Bush regime to report potential threats from other countries honestly and accurately.  In other words, Americans do not trust this 'President,' and for good reason.
