Now, I am not trying to front Frenchie out, in any way, shape, or form. But in my opinion, he, like many others, has come to assume that certain polls indicate certain things, because the MSM presents them in a false light. And if not properly scrutinized, they presume they will be given credibility and you will fall for their skewed results, hook, line, and sinker..
Let's look at the first part of his post. It refers to a poll that asked the question:
". . . Do you approve or disapprove of the way Bush is handling the situation in Iraq?"
From that one question that we see so often plugged as an indicator by the MSM of support for/against the war, we get an assumption that those that disapprove of the way the war is being handled, are actually against the war. It does not indicate that, as it does not take into account that many that disapprove may be for more aggressive tactics, instead of the politically correct campaign that is now going on right now. I am one of those people that disapprove, but am not ready to oppose it just yet.
If the Bush Administration continues to allow public opinion to dictate the strategies, then I might become inclined to oppose it. And if at some point, when I feel that we are making no progress (because of this politically correctness philosophy that Bush seems to feel the need to follow is not working anymore), then I might become inclined to oppose it. But I am not at that point, yet. So, to lump me in with the anti-war crowd, is a faulty attempt to manipulate data, for the specific purpose of steering public opinion in their direction.
