The president's approval rating is low because of women. Many women voted for him in 2004 simply because he played up the security issue. Now many of these same women, some of whom are mothers, are heartbroken about the huge losses we have sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cindy Sheehan's tragedy tore at our hearts and reminded us that we don't want anymore mothers to suffer the loss of a child in this war.
This administration went to war based on a lie and without an exit strategy. Now we are stuck in a huge mess, with no end in sight. With an approval rating of 36% and a disapproval rate of 56%, http://americanresearchgroup.com/economy/ those approval ratings will only go lower as the war and fatalities continue. As of this minute, 69 of our service members have died in Iraq this month alone, and the month is not over yet. 1,868 Americans have died in Iraq. How many more will die? http://icasualties.org/oif/
