    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's really nit worth my time. If you look at rcp you can see that Obama before and after this poll fovers around 50%. the one poll that has him at 60% is an anomoly. Why? Well compared to the other polls, this one has a much larger group of democrats.

    It's really as simple as that.







    Hatuey,

    Your post is not worthy of a separate response. But wrong in thos threads i am not defending the polls as you claim. That is a lie.

    I still don't plan to vote for Obama in 2012, as I believe that, under his leadership, America is going in a very wrong direction. However, I can't discount what he did with bin Laden. So, grudgingly, I have to say "Well done, Mr. President". I am not crazy about how this has bumped him up in the polls, but dammit, I have to put our country ahead of petty politics, so I am giving credit where credit is due. But, again, I say that the next election is still a year and a half away. At that time, Americans will be saying "What have you done for me lately". If Obama can't do for the economy what he did for getting rid of bin Laden, I say that he will be in serious trouble, and will be vulnerable. However, for the moment, I will let him bask in the popularity he has now. He deserves that.

    Article is here.
    first of all dont pay to much attention to this particular poll given the target audience.

    your tendancy to feel the need to praise him, albeit temporarily is a common human nature instinct. Like the bank robber that stops on the way out the door and hands the little kid a 20 and tells him to buy his mom something nice. for this brief moment you go "ahhhh, thats sweet".

    but remember the bigger picture you pointed out, we ARE headed in the wrong direction with this administration.
    Obama is clueless, you need to look no further than his apointees. Every president to date knows rule #1 is have a good team around you. the task is too large for one man and left to one man, ideologys are sure to trump common sense.

    The presidency is a give and take affair, by refusing to, even through hook and crook, listen to the American people, thinking "hell, they elected me they must be on board with my vision".. Obama has lost his way.

    The independants that voted for him were on board with his promise of CHANGE, bipartisan for the good of the country CHANGE promise..

    there are those that will vote for him regardless, there are those that wont regardless,
    but
    This middle vote that will again sway the "12" election is a very smart lot...

    we shall see
