There Is A Precedent For Wanting A President To Fail

Crawling from the recesses of "that is coming back to haunt me" file are a couple of polls where people were asked if they wanted President Bush and/or his policies to succeed. The results are not surprising among Democrat respondents.

In a 2006 Fox News poll (link to poll), more than half of Democrat respondents said they wanted President Bush to fail. Not a huge surprise there.

In a 2007 poll (link to poll) the question asked if the respondent wanted President Bush's troop surge in Iraq to succeed. More than 1/3 of the Democrat respondents said they wanted the troop surge to fail. That is somewhat surprising to me.

Even if I disagree with the president and his policies, I will always, always, always, support our military and pray for their success. This may seem somewhat harsh but people who do not support our military and wish for their failure do not deserve to be Americans. They should be exiled to a socialist country where they would be more comfortable.
