10. "Hurt the troops" would at LEAST become a huge retail issue in 2008
I agree there's more political leverage than they're using.

I'd like to hear "fix your mess or get out!"

I'd like to hear a cry for OVERSIGHT.

Recently someone on some talking-head teevee show said something like, "Congress gave Bush everything but the one thing he REALLY needed: oversight."

But withholding funds for the mess? It's like having pigshit everywhere and determining to clean it up by withholding soap. Let's deal with the pigs and their shit. While the pigs are in charge and shitting, there's no power gained by denying soap to deal with the mess they're making.
