[size=4]Public Supports Bush Positions on U.N. Involvement in Iraq[/size=4] [b]Presidential job approval rating back up to 70% in latest poll[/b] by Frank Newport, GALLUP NEWS SERVICE PRINCETON, NJ -- The American public is strongly behind President George W. Bush's efforts to push the United Nations into taking a more forceful position against Iraq and its leader, Saddam Hussein. A just-completed CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly want the U.N. to take a tougher stance against Iraq, to pass a resolution demanding compliance with weapons inspections efforts, and to authorize military action if Iraq does not comply. More than seven in 10 Americans feel that Saddam Hussein will use weapons of mass destruction against the United States if military action is not taken. President Bush's job approval rating is now at 70%, marking the first time since late July that it has been at that level or higher.

Wag the dog? Some would argue. Not really a scandle looming but possibly just for republican ratings before the election.[}:)]

If the attack on Iraq occurs before the election (my bet is it will go down about 3 weeks before, and in a manner none of us can imagine), and goes even half as well as Desert Storm, we are going to OWN both the House and Senate. Pray, people! PRAY!

Does anyone believe anything the Gallup or Harris Organizations proclaims as truth based on a poll? They ask leading questions and fudge the data... You want 70% approval for the Green Party? Just poll Berkeley, CA residents. Any desired outcome can be engineered, and if not, they will just lie.

"But, but, Bush can't be president. He doesn't know squat about foreign policy!" Remember that horseshit? The U.N. is his bitch now, & every tin pot dictator on the planet is not sleeping very well these days. It's called Leadership, and this country was sorely lacking it for 8 long years.

[u]Some[/u] would argue? Who? Dasshole and Gebhardt? I suppose that Bush's speech before the UN didn't convince you that war may be necessary to save the region? Eric The(OhWell,SometimesTheDogWagsTheTail,Too)Hun­[>]:)]

This was a CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll! You think [u]those[/u] three groups have anything to gain by making George W. Bush look good? Where exactly were you during the 8 years of the Clinton Administration? [b]In Hog's Heaven?[/b] [:D] Eric The(Huh?)Hun[>]:)]

On a side note did ya notice the UN let their foot off the gas as soon as Iraq said the inspectors could come back....what a joke that will be.
