The public is revolting

Karl Rove in today's Wall Street Journal --

Mr. McCain's first Iraq problem is that he favored removing Saddam Hussein when it was popular -- 76% of Americans thought it was worth going to war in April 2003 -- and has maintained his support of the war even as it grew to be unpopular.

Karl Rove, a few sentences later --

Opinion surveys are notoriously unreliable in gauging public opinion on a complicated question like Iraq.

With this kind of analysis, it's not clear why the fact that Rove and his disciples are now running McCain's campaign is seen as such fearsome news.
