Josh Marshall shows Tony Snow is a liar AND a fool
Thanks to one of his diligent readers, we learn that there was polling during WWII and during the Battle of the Bulge. And more to the point, the numbers show that Americans then had no trouble supporting a capable leader.
As you can see, there was no downtick in public support for the war around the time of the Battle of the Bulge. Approval for President Roosevelt's conduct of the war continued at around 70% where it had been for years. The number of people who said they had a clear idea of what the war was about was at about the same level and appears to have been rising. Support for a negotiated peace with Hitler remained around the anemic levels it had been for years -- at around 15%.Thanks to his long experience with Fox we know that the lying part won't affect him, but you would think Tony would have a little self respect. Guess not.
