The 21% doctrine

As Bush resists and denigrates the ISG report as "unrealistic," his approval rating in handling the Iraq situation has fallen to a new all-time low:
Americans believe the war in Iraq is going badly and getting worse, and think it's time for the U.S. either to change its strategy or start getting out....

Just 21 percent approve of President Bush's handling of the war, the lowest number he's ever received, and an 8-point drop from just a month ago. Most of that drop has been among Republicans and conservatives. Three-quarters of Americans disapprove of how the president is handling Iraq.
Looks like he's spent that political capital. Not that he cares. He's more than happy to run up huge debts in an effort, not to mitigate the horrifying situation he created, but to cement his "legacy" in history. He's doing that, alright.
