America Overwhelmingly Sides With Dems On Iraq, Damn That Harry Reid For Reflecting The National Consensus

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.
