Support for Barry’s War, AKA, the Afghanistan war, has declined sharply. According to the latest Quinnipiac Poll:
Support for President Obama’s policy in Afghanistan turns the political landscape upside down.
· Democrats say 62 – 33 percent the United States should not be there, even though the O-bots strongly support Obama on virtually all other issues
· Republicans, who oppose Obama on most issues, back the war 64 – 31 percent
· Independent voters say 54 – 40 percent the United States should not be in Afghanistan
· Military families are divided, as 49 percent believe the U.S. is doing the right thing in Afghanistan while 47 percent say the U.S. should not be involved
I believe the decline can be traced directly to Obama backing away from his campaign promise to begin drawing down U.S. troops from Afghanistan in the summer of 2011.
Reports say U.S. troops will now remain in Afghanistan to at least 2014 at a cost of $8 billion dollars a month.
