Confronted with strong opposition to his Iraq policies, President Bush decides to interpret public opinion his own way. Actually, he says, people agree with him.
"This is a very tricky thing in our politics. We want to think that we want our leaders to stand up to public opinion. But we also like to think of ourselves as being in a democracy where we are listened to," Fields said. "He risks either the notion of being thought out of touch ... or to be thought simply duplicitous."

I agree with the responses made so far, and I don't have an answer as to how we get GW's attention and convince him to change course and acknowledge our reality.
Its like watching a gigantic train wreck in slow motion; I'm aghast and desperate, but I feel helpless to change the outcome.
So, I just pray to God that He will use me somehow to help straighten things out.

I think the president opinion when it comes to polls and public response to his dealings with the nations are blatantly falling in dictatorship.
He is the leader and By God he will do what he feels he should do.
Actually very arrogant. He doesn't answer to anybody but himslef.
