Losing Support

David Horsey gets it just right in the Seattle P-I today (and thanks to Buffoon for the link!):

While in other, even less surprising news, it appears that Preznit Pants On Fire is getting another rug pulled out from under him by losing support even among military families. Gee, there's a shocker -- the folks that he is sending off as cannon fodder for his misguided and illegal Desert Dance with Bullets (and their families) are finally waking up to the fact that he has been playing them all for chumps for the past five years.

The views of the military community, including active-duty service members, veterans and family members, mirror those of the overall adult population, a sign that the strong military endorsement that the Bush administration often pointed to has dwindled in the war's fifth year.

Nearly 6 in 10 military families disapprove of Bush's job performance and the way he has run the war, rating him only slightly better than the general population does.

And among those families with soldiers, sailors and Marines who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, 60 percent say the war in Iraq is not worth the cost, the same result as all adults surveyed.

There's not much more to the story than that, other than who conducted the poll, when and how many people participated, etc., but it's still worth looking at if only to read the comments and catch the one from a typical Bush apologist who dismisses the whole thing as a "bogus poll, as would be expected." How do these people who still, in the face of all evidence of his mendaciousness, incompetence and complete disregard for the laws of our land, support the president manage to feed and dress themselves every day? Given what we've all seen from him since the Supreme Court installed him in the White House, isn't someone who still thinks he's doing a good job by definition too fucking stupid to live? Oy.
