    • Q8 It has been reported that the Syrian Government has used chemical weapons on its citizens. Do you think the United States should take military action against the Syrian government in response to the use of chemical weapons or not?
      Yes, should take military action ……………… 42
      No, should not take military action………….. 50
      Not sure …………………………………………….. 8

      Q8X Now, more specifically, if U.S. military action in Syria were limited to air strikes using cruise missiles launched from U.S. naval ships that were meant to destroy military units and infrastructure that have been used to carry out chemical attacks would you support or oppose this U.S. military action in Syria?*
      Support ……………………………………………………….. 50
      Oppose ……………………………………………………….. 44
      Not sure ……………………………………………………….. 6
      * Data reflects responses among 291 adults interviewed on 8/29

      They came up with that 50% by asking a carefully crafted question and cherry-picking the responses of 291 people within a poll of 700. Sarah Palin is right – polls are for strippers and cross country skiers.

  1. File this under NOYB. A quickie cut and paste, but I think the correct wording should be: “prerogative.”

    a : an exclusive or special right, power, or privilege: as (1) : one belonging to an office or an official body (2) : one belonging to a person, group, or class of individuals (3) : one possessed by a nation as an attribute of sovereignty

    b : the discretionary power inhering in the British Crown

    .

    -snip-
    In a decision that is drawing intense criticism from across the ideological spectrum, the circuit court said the president has a “constitutional perogative” not to tell the American people who he or his staff meets with in the White House.

    GWB got his MOU (memo of understanding) back in 2006, BUT…Obama promised the most transparent administration – evah knowing full well he would be covered under MOU.
