Big news -- the last US combat troops are leaving Iraq.

Hallelujah!

Until the questions, "Who lost Iraq," is asked or an Iranian problem comes up.

You are truly laughable.

Who lost Iraq? George W. Bush and the neocon clique.

Iranian problem? Maybe Allah can take Mahmoud Ahmedinedjad and send him to the Great Satan.

The dirty little secret was that with a brutal tyrant as its leader, Iraq was able to hold its own against Iran... without American combat troops. I see no evidence that any country except perhaps North Korea would stand in solidarity with Iran as an aggressor against Iraq.

Quoted for truth.

This is one of the great problems of the mid-east, it is easily destabilized.  One thing a US presence does is provide stability.

Whatever president is in office loses points when the situation destabilizes.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 46%, +1.

Disapprove 53%, -1.


"Strongly Approve" is at 26%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 44%, u.

Still in range.

The drop in Gallup is not being reflected in Rasmussen.

We have advisors. Armed advisors, to be sure, but that gives us some influence.

The Iraqi people will have to create their own stability. Such will depend upon letting some bygones be bygones. It may be that the only unifying factor is that everyone loathes the late and unlamented tyrant Saddam Hussein.  Iraq is not an international pariah as was the Republic of Vietnam in 1972.

Cheers for getting the last US combat troops out of Iraq!  Jeers for continued combat missions in Iraq.

Depends on the media coverage. Iraq hasn't been in the mainstream news for 1-2 years now.

Such would likely enhance his "strongly approve" rating and reduce his "strongly disapprove" rating on Rasmussen. But that's only "likely" from me.

I'm not overjoyed with Q outside of the Northeast (and generally NY, NJ and New England).

I still would think NJ is an outlier.

It's kinda hard picking the outlier of those two. It's doubtful that Obama's even in Florida and it's doubtful that he's even and not above ground in NJ. I'm more inclined to think that the FL is the outlier.

According to Fox, Sarah Palin is good enough to be paid to give political commentary. Just sayin'.

New Jersey -- possibly the proposed Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero. Florida -- end of the Gusher in the Gulf.  My guess, and nothing more.

I'd normally pay more attention to Q in NJ than Q in FL, but I still it is too low for Obama in NJ.

FL was never hugely effected by the oil spill, especially the east coast.

NJ, if it is the mosque, he's lost the election.  I think NJ is just a bad sample.
