Americans Want To "Cut And Run"
Apparently more and more Americans are that our current policies - Republican policies - on Iraq are not working.

NEW YORK A new Gallup poll finds that roughly 2 in 3 Americans urge a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, with 31% wanting this to start immediately.

Gallup's director, Frank Newport, sums up the results today: "Taken together, it is perhaps fair to say that a significant majority of Americans would like the United States to either withdraw troops from Iraq or make specific plans to do so, although there is no majority demand that troops be withdrawn immediately."

I’m going to have some serious fun watching Republicans’ midterm election campaigns. Their current strategy is to paint Democrats as “cut and run”, but as a majority of Americans begin to prefer a “cut and run” strategy over the current Republican strategy, I expect to see Republicans drop that talking point quickly. If they don’t, they’ll sink into irrelevance - which is always a positive thing.
