I imagine that would be Dick Cheney’s reaction to this new CNN poll.
Nearly six in 10 Americans want to see U.S. troops leave Iraq either immediately or within a year, and more would rather have Congress running U.S. policy in the conflict than President Bush, according to a CNN poll out Tuesday.
Tuesday’s poll found most Americans support a withdrawal from Iraq, with 21 percent wanting an immediate pullout and 37 percent saying troops should be home within a year. Another 39 percent said the troops should stay in Iraq as long as needed.
They were more closely divided on the issue of funding the president’s so-called “New Way Forward,” with 52 percent saying Congress should block funds for additional troops and 43 percent opposing such a move.
[T]he latest survey finds Americans more receptive to having Congress take the lead, with 47 percent saying the lawmakers should be “primarily responsible” for setting war policy. Thirty-three percent said the president should be primarily responsible for setting the country’s course.
