Poll: Three in Four Americans Don't Trust Obama's 'No Ground Troops' Pledge in Fight Against #ISIS

Well, no surprise.

It's all lies all the time from this White House. Indeed, if and when Obama does commit ground troops he'll try to weasel his way out of the "no ground troops" pledge he's made numerous times (remember how he weaseled on his "red line" on Syria's chemical weapons use?). We've seen him do it dozens of times. Just wait for it, the freakin' dirtbag.

At the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey, at WSJ, "Poll Shows Americans Expect U.S. to Send Troops to Fight Islamic State":

Nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t believe President Barack Obama’s assertion that the country won’t use ground troops to fight the militant group Islamic State in Iraq or Syria, the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey finds.

The poll shows a substantial lack of trust in Mr. Obama’s repeated assertions that American military efforts will be limited to airstrikes and other efforts that don’t include ground troops. Some 72% of registered voters surveyed said U.S. ground troops eventually will be deployed against Islamic State’s fighters. Only 20% said they believe the U.S. won’t end up using military ground forces.

The Obama administration has cautioned that the battle against Islamic State won’t be won quickly. It has said it will proceed with an international coalition and that the U.S. won’t  commit ground troops to combat.

“I want to be clear: The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and won’t have a combat mission,” Mr. Obama said Sept. 17. “As your commander in chief, I won’t commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.”
Ironically, if he'd just tell the truth he'd have the support of the American people for his anti-terror policy. As it is fully 45 percent of Americans now support ground troops "if military officials determined it was the 'best way to defeat the ISIS army'." Imagine how high that number would go if Obama evinced some real presidential leadership on these issues.

Still more at the link.

Brace yourself for more Obama-Democrat lies in the meanwhile.
