The nerve of that guy Harry Reid! Who does he think he represents? The people?

As the Democrat-controlled Congress and the White House clash over an Iraq spending bill, with President Bush vowing to veto it because it contains withdrawal deadlines, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that a solid majority of Americans side with the Democrats.

In addition, a nearly equal number believe that victory in Iraq isn't possible, and about only one in eight think the war has improved in the three months since Bush called for a troop increase there.

Dear congressional Democrats: this is a clear sign that America does not want you to cave. You approved the money for the troops, along with a strategy to end the Republican-created mess in Iraq. If the president chooses to leave the troops stranded in Iraq without the equipment or strategy they need, it adds even more blood on his hands.
