A majority of Americans don't trust the upcoming report by the Army's top commander in Iraq on the progress of the war and even if they did, it wouldn't change their mind, according to a new poll. ... Of those opposed to the war, 47 percent said Petreaus' report could not change their mind while 17 percent said it could.Most people who call themselves "anti-war" have made up their minds already.
...CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said he doesn't think the mistrust is directed at Petreaus as much as it is what he represents.
"It does seem to indicate that anyone associated with the Bush administration may be a less than credible messenger for the message that there is progress being made in Iraq," Holland said.
And they will ignore everything Petraeus says - except the negative stuff.
And they have the AUDACITY to call themselves the reality-based community. HA!
Who is to blame for this? The MSM and the Dem leadership - like Harry Reid who MONTHS ago proclaimed Iraq lost.
I think we need to see the Iraq War through to a successful completion NO MATTER WHAT.
To me, the Petraeus report is important not because it will show whether raq is winnable, but whether we currently have a good strategy to win it - FOR WIN IT WE MUST.
