More Americans disapprove than approve of Barack Obamas response to the situation in Iraq, even while the public broadly agrees with his decision not to send U.S. combat forces there.

The headline screams, “He’s doing all he can but you rubes still hate him, wah!”
Americans are slowly waking up. I hope.
The truth is obama has sent 300+ ground troops. 300+ ground troops were sent they (obama and skerry) just conveniently called them advisors. Hope obama and skerry did not set them up to leave behind. Is time for a work around U.S. Military because nobody can trust obama and his crowd. Those isis creatures advancing on Baghdad are obama’s army.
I’m afraid the only thing that will convince the public is another terror attack on our soil.
These terrorists will not stop until they are stopped by us. Chamberlain Redux.
Easy to balance. Most think Obama blew it big time, and lost he war Bush won. But don’t want to start over in that hell hole.
The disapproval is about how it came to this (inaction) and Obama’s foreign policy as a whole. There are no good options now and that hold for not just Iraq. ABC is confounded (not really) about why everything isn’t all peachy now...by god there’s an “agreement”.
