Poll Suggests Americans Don't Think Bush Will Remove Troops By 2008

The American people aren't stupid.

A majority -- roughly the same percentage that voted in Democratic majorities in the House and Senate -- does not believe the Bush Administration will redeploy troops from Iraq by 2008, against their wishes.

Power to the people ... sigh.

A majority of those polled by Rasmussen Reports say they believe the Bush Administration will implement a key suggestion made by the Iraq Study Group -- reducing the number of U.S. combat forces in Iraq by 2008.

The poll found that 53 percent think that outcome is not likely, compared with just 38 percent who remain optimistic of such an outcome.

The poll also found, consistent with recent polls, that 64 percent of American voters favor “removing almost all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by early 2008.” Just 22 percent are opposed.

REPORTER: You’re still in denial about how bad things are in Iraq. ...

BUSH: It’s bad in Iraq. (extremely long pause) Does that help? (Laughter.)

No sir, it doesn't. Actions speak louder than words, especially half-hearted words. All the words in the world won't matter if your action remains "stay the course" until you leave office.

Reality has set for most people about exactly what kind delusional asshole Bush is...
Too late, but it's set in.

Too bad they were convinced that Kerry was "too French" because most of the ISG opinions were Kerry/Edwards opinions in 2004.

The only way to remove the troops is to "remove" Bush & Cheney first.

And I'm sorry to say I don't think the Dems will press to remove them either, eyes on 2008. I don't understand the reasoning behind that since they rode back into Congress on the antiwar sentiment.

i disagree
I think the Dems will push for some set of timetables. it may not be perfect, but it will be more than the "do as I say Iraq government ... or I'll ask you again a year from now" policy we now have.

If Bush sends in MORE troops to Iraq, which I think he wants to do, will the majority of Americans turn their thoughts to IMPEACHMENT?????

When will the people of the USA say enough is enough. We saw a hint of it in this past election, but what will finally put them over the edge? "We are as mad as Hell and won't take it anymore" stance.
