Apparently, if you think the war is lost (and I do- I have thought this baby was over for some time now and we are just refusing to admit it), that is tantamount to being a traitor. Clearly, something needs to be done to the American Public:
Nearly half of those polled believe the situation in Iraq has gotten worse over the past three months, while 37% believe conditions have remained about the same and 12% said the situation improved. A majority of Americans polled (55%) believe victory in Iraq is no longer possible, while 36% are more optimistic and believe victory can be achieved. Nine-percent were unsure.
A majority of individuals surveyed (56%) now side with the Democrats in Congress, who want to set a deadline for troop withdrawal, while 37% agree with President Bush, who does not want to set a deadline.
Maybe there is still time- only 86% think things have gotten worse and stayed the same. If the 12% who think things have gotten better act quick and leave their day jobs at Hughhewitt.com and Redstate.com and Nationalreview.com, there might be time to round up the rest of America and send them to re-education camps where they can be forced to view Michelle Malkin cheerleader videos until they break and agree the war in Iraq is a smashing success.
Remember in past elections, when Republicans would praise the individuality and innovativeness of the American people, telling you that the reason we need fewer regulations and less government is because the American people are smart enough to take care of themselves?
They were right.
This baby is over. Done. Finished. And the average Joe on the street knows it.
