Mike Miller BS: And the next US President will be (287* d) RE: BS: And the next US President will be 05 Aug 07

Of course the silly, expensive and devisive Iraqi occupation should be the deciding factor in 2008, but I call your attention to the polls that were taken in 2004. The public was at least 60% opposed to the war and, yet, Bush won. Not by much, but he won. Until the Democrats can come up with a salable anti-terrorist plan, the voters will stick with the hawks. Far too many, on the left, tend to take a multinationalist view and defend the Islamic world that most Americans believe want to kill us. It is basic psychology to dehumanize our enemies. You can say that Bush's adventure in Iraq has weakened our position but, to most Americans, it was better than doing nothing. We were, and are, angry at being attacked. We are in no mood to hear the bleat of the left, that it was all our fault and we got what we deserved. Those, of you, who blame the US for everything from global warming to bad television, are entitled to your opinion but don't be surprised that it doesn't endear you to the public. The result of 9/11 is not what the terrorists hoped it would be. The mood of the country was toward unity and a kind of patriotic circling of the wagons. I've said it before, this war is unpopular because it is unwinnable. Nobody gives a damn about morality and ethics when they are being attacked and, until, the Democrats understand that, they will keep right on losing elections.
