Obama’s world tour debacle keeps hitting his campaign with more and more body blows as America decides victory in Iraq is more important than ending the war in Iraq. Gallup has some stunning numbers out which show 80% of Americans are not lined up behind Obama’s stubbornly pessimistic view that the Surge was the wrong path to take in Iraq:
A new USA Today/Gallup poll finds nearly half of Americans saying the U.S. troop surge in Iraq, now over, has made the situation there better, up from 40% in February and just 22% a year ago. Accordingly, the percentage believing the surge “is not making much difference” has declined from 51% a year ago, and 38% in February, to just 32%.
What is clear is only 17% buy into the Obama position the Surge made things worse and was not worth it. The rest of the country is positive or neutral. On the signature issue of our times, Obama and the Surrendercrats are (as usual) seriously out of step with America. Â Look at the numbers Â year ago and America has moved from pessimistic to optimistic. Obama clearly has not ‘moved on’ yet. Wonder if he realizes he is disagreeing with America, and being arrogantly stubborn about it to boot.
