Dems Back Saddam Hussein in New Poll

Democrats have given Saddam Hussein a shocking vote of confidence in the latest Fox News Opinion Dynamics survey, with a solid plurality saying the world would be better off if the Butcher of Baghdad was still in power.

Forty-one percent of Democrats gave Saddam a thumbs up, while just 34 percent said Iraq is better served with the murderous dictator gone, reports the New York Post.

In stark contrast, 78 percent of Republicans said toppling the mass-murdering leader left everyone better off. Just 10 percent said they wished Saddam still ruled Iraq.

On the question of whether President Bush lied to the American people about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction, 72 percent of Democrats say he did.

Seventy-nine percent of Republicans disagreed, however -- saying that Bush gave the American people the best intelligence he had at the time.

Now is this really a shock? Most of the defeatists embrace foreign dictators over our own country all the time anyway. Just more confirmation.

Remember their mantra: We support the troops, but not the mission. Translation: We support the troops and their enemies arent such bad guys either. Above everything, Bush is the target, no one else.

If the results of this poll are any where accurate, it is a terrifying thought to think that they should ever be in charge of this country again.

At first, I thought this was the Onion or Scrapple Face.

It's only natural that the Dems back that hunky mass murderer, Saddam. The Demorats are Socialists and with Saddam Hussein modeling himself after Stalin and Hitler, Hussein embodies those two most dynamic Socialisms (Proletarian and National Socialism). :-|

Disgusting but not surprising.

I suspect all the delaying tactics by Saddam in his trial are helped by polls like this.

I think he figures if he can delay the trial enough, the US will have pulled out of Iraq and his flunkies will get him free.

He might be right if the dodos keep it up.

These people are sick and surly children. They can't be trusted with any kind of responsibility or power.

An astute observation. I am sure that Saddam's defense will be "I only did what I had to for the defense of the State". As Democrats and other Socialist worship the State above all else, this makes perfect sense to them.

Polls are inane games.

Democrats loved Uncle Joe, Ho Chi Mihn and Mao.

I'm surprised they don't have Hitler on their list of socialist heroes. Well, give it time.

Just wonderful. That would put the Democrats to the left of the Chinese Communist Party.

I wonder if China would consider a trade. One used-up, former opposition party for one that would be pro-military and at least wear their Red underwear on the outside.

I believe this because they cite the poll, but is NewsMax a credible source? I have heard they have been wrong many times.
