Nah Dread, President Bush does not represent his constituency exactly the way they wish to be represented. He simply has been successful in his campaign of fear-mongering. All the bullshit (e.g., Code Orange, the Patriot Act, his invoking of September 11, his invoking of God) has served Bush's purpose of getting mostly-conservative U.S. citizenry to fall in line with his decision to bomb Iraq. Shouldn't be any real surprise there.

As for the polling results shifting more in favor of war, my guess is the fence-walkers have decided it's good to support the President and the military in time of war. They are driven more by fear than patriotism, though.

Sad, but true.

I too am sick of that saying.
. Thanks.

Glad to see I'm not alone in that sentiment.
