Not only have the three leading Democratic contenders for the White House refused to commit to withdrawing troops from Iraq by 2013, President Bush said in an interview that he is advising Hillary Clinton’s campaign!
Other Democrats are enabling Bush’s war policies. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi removed from a war spending bill a provision that would require Bush to get Congress’s approval to attack Iran. Instead of doing her job, Pelosi says she prays “all the time” to get Bush to change his policies.
No wonder a new Washington Post ABC poll has the Congressional Democrats polling lower than Bush’s 33%–at 29%!
But public opinion can’t seem to sway the Democrats or the president into doing anything differently.
