Poll: Bush Not Doing Enough For Iraq Vets
President's Approval Rating Inches Up, But Most Americans Still Pessimistic About Iraq

March 12, 2007

(CBS) After a week of Congressional hearings investigating reports of shoddy treatment of veterans at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, most Americans are critical of the Bush administration's efforts for the wounded soldiers returning from the Iraq War, a new CBS News/New York Times poll finds.

Three out of four 76 percent of Americans do not think the Bush administration has done enough to care for these veterans. A majority of Republicans agree with all Americans overall on this issue.

Monday, the Army forced its surgeon general, Lt. Gen. Kevin C. Kiley, to retire, officials said, making him the third high-level official to lose his job over poor outpatient treatment of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.


HAS THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION DONE ENOUGH FOR IRAQ WAR VETS?

Yes 17 percent

No 76 percent

Fewer Americans are leery of putting more American troops in harm's way by sending additional troops to Iraq. Though 59 percent of Americans still oppose President Bush's recent decision to send more than 20,000 additional troops to Iraq, 36 percent now favor that decision a slight increase from last month and a rise of 7 points since January.

3. Senator Durbin will have something to say about this in
the following days, I'll bet. the representative mentioned I am unsure of and will not attempt to spell her name, but hope she does the same within the house meetings.

4. Those 17% must know something I don't...
Or else they are the ones who never trust the "leftist media" to ever tell the truth about our "honorable" president Bush.

5. I guess that poll didn't get freepered.
76-17 with 7 undecided?

Sounds like a horse whipping is in order.

6. He is doing enough to them.
He can't relate to veterans, now if they had all gone AWOL, he could relate.
