But who are the one in four blindly partisan Americans who approve of the disaster?
It’s hard to believe that anyone in his right mind would approve of President Joe Biden’s disastrous handling of the withdrawal of American military forces from Afghanistan.
But there they are in a new poll released by NBC on Sunday–25 percent of those surveyed said they approve. Blind as they must be to the misery of the Afghans, the beatings and deaths, the falling bodies from an evacuating airplane, the U.S. citizens and Afghan allies and their families who can’t make it to the Kabul airport, the abandonment of Bagram Airfield, the leaving behind of mountains U.S. arms, and all the rest.
A resounding 60 percent of respondents don’t approve.
Who are these Biden supporters? The poll doesn’t explain. Even though the regular demographic questions were asked of the respondents–age, education, self-identified social class, political affiliation, race and so forth–the poll that’s available online doesn’t break down those categories.
Leaving us to guess.
So, here’s mine: They are so attached to a political ideology that they can’t see or chose to avoid reality. They are Democratic partisans. They are Trump haters. They are cruel and heartless. They are morons. In some or other proportion.
Thankfully, a clear majority see the reality of the disaster. I suspect more will join them as the full impact is realized–possibly some U.S.. citizens left behind or held hostage, the violence subjugation of women, a cradle for terrorist groups and more.
Meanwhile, we await Biden’s next fumbling, rote recitation of the excuses ad lies on his teleprompter.
