Americans want to cut off war funding [i.e. END THE WAR]

Most Americans oppose fully funding President George W. Bush's $190 billion request to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while a majority supports expanding a children's health care program
he has threatened to veto, a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows.


Bush's approval rating stands at 33 percent, equal to his all-time low in this poll and just 29 percent approve of the job Congress is doing -- a 14-point drop since Democrats took control in January, the newspaper said.


Only about 25 percent of Americans support the administration's $190 billion war funding request; 70 percent want the proposed allocation reduced, the Post said.

Yet common political wisdom is "we just can't cut funding for the war". Why not? American's elected you to end the war. American's want funding cut. [American's want a national health care system.]

It ain't over...

Why is it that people with a straight face say that Hillary already has this?

The Huffington Post has learned that Senator Barack Obama, D-IL, raised a total of $20 million during the third quarter fundraising period, $19 million of which can be used for the primary election.


Obama's fundraising was aided by approximately 93,000 new donors who contributed to the campaign during the past three months. The decline in the money total was attributed to the traditionally slow fundraising months of July and August.

To date, the Obama campaign has raised more than $78 million, nearly $75 million of which is slated for the primary election. In addition, more than 350,000 people have donated to Obama since he announced his presidential candidacy.

The real news is the number of new donors. Those are people who never have donated before AND he can keep going back to.
