Gallup Poll on Iraq - Not good news for Democrats

Poll's "smolls", but this one is interesting. Gallup has released a poll where repondents could pick their own responses over pre-determined ones. The subject, "Where should the US go now in regards to Iraq":

Pull the troops out and come home - 31
Stay the course/Doing a good job - 16
Train Iraqis to run own country - 15
Be aggressive/Finish what we started - 13
Come up with an exit strategy - 10
Make a gradual withdrawal - 8
Send more troops/Build up military presence - 2
Work with advisers/Act on advice - 2
Work with the United Nations - 2
Admit we made a mistake/Apologize
and move forward - 2
Keep the public informed/Explain what is
going on - 1
Other - 4
No opinion - 8

What's interesting about this report per Gallup is:

"PRINCETON, NJ -- The American public has no more of a definitive conception of what the United States should do next in regard to the situation in Iraq than do their elected representatives. In recent weeks, the Senate and the House have debated resolutions that would mandate specific policies for dealing with Iraq, resulting in little more than a reinforcement of the view that the lawmakers have sharply differing views on what should be done. This is occurring in an environment in which Iraq is considered by Americans to be the most important problem facing the country, and the number one priority for the government to address at this point."

According to Gallup American's want a pullout, we all do eventually, but not immediate, and more want us to stay and complete the job over setting a time-table (Murtha). Even less want to turn things over to the thugs at the UN. Moreover, while they seem "split" about what to do, they understand the Bush plan better than the Democratic plan for what to do from here. Thus after all the effort of Dems to promote their plan, they still seem incoherant. While they'll attempt to use the data to support their position, the over all result is good news for them in November.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
