    Ohh and the polls were NOT conducted by the GOP, they were conducted as indicated by the organizations on the chart.

    And just to irritate certain posters on this board, here is another set of results for the President versus Congress and the economy.

    Again NONE of this is taken by the GOP, they just compiled the data and provide the sources.

    Ahh yes and this, I guess another Bush timewarp commander that will lie to Congress and just goosestep like ( according to the leftoid tinfoil hat crowd) the last couple have.

    And since it says these two will sail to what appears easy confirmation, what happened to that Evil Bush plan to only have his yes men in place? The claim he fires anyone that doesn't agree with him?

    Hey show me the one bill the Democrats supported which called for immediate withdrawal.

    In fact, the only member of Congress to put a bill on the floor with an immediate withdrawal was Duncan Hunter A REPUBLICAN, back in 2005.

    determining foreign policy by taking a poll of average americans is as ridiculous as determining foreign policy by taking a poll of folks in uniform.

    I don't really CARE if 70% of Americans polled think that Al Qaeda will take over Iraq if we leave. It still is a patently ridiculous assertion.

    Shit...70% of Americans couldn't find Iraq on a globe. 70% of Americans don't even know who the secretary of state is.... but RGS thinks we should poll them to determine what direction we should take with our nation's foreign policy?

    I beg to differ.

    I have to agree with maineman. The people shouldnt decide policy. We need a dictatorship. Let's just let the liberals take over power and decide everything for us. :eusa_boohoo: :eusa_boohoo: :eusa_dance:

    I wonder why the GOP did not "compile" this? They must have just missed it.

    ABC News/Washington Post Poll. July 18-21, 2007. N=1,125 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3. Fieldwork by TNS.

    "Do you approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president?"

    Approve 33
    Disapprove 65
    Unsure 2

    ABC News/Washington Post Poll. July 18-21, 2007. N=1,125 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3. Fieldwork by TNS. (same poll)

    "Do you approve or disapprove of the way the Democrats in Congress are doing their job?"

    Approve 46
    Disapprove 51
    Unsure 2

    ABC News/Washington Post Poll. July 18-21, 2007. N=1,125 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3. Fieldwork by TNS. (same poll)

    "Do you approve or disapprove of the way the Republicans in Congress are doing their job?"

    Approve 34
    Disapprove 64
    Unsure 2


    What party do YOU think is dragging congressional approval ratings down? :eusa_think:

    I have to agree with you on this. Few people in this country know who the Secretary of State is, of Defense, of Health, of Education and cannot name any of them. Few would be able to tell who the Homeland Security Advisor is and what she does. This is why we don't base our foreign policy on opinion polls instead we base it on hard evidence and facts and then decide based on those facts and this is why the Congress needs to take a greater role in these matters and to exercise their constitutional authority to set U.S. policy and work with the President as necessary and over-ride him as necessary in order to preserve our national security and have a clear foreign policy. The President has his role to play and so does the Congress and Congress hasn't been willing to stand up and to assert its authority because they fear Bush but they must do their job. An opinion poll won't change that.
