Panetta says polls cannot dictate Afghan war plans.

Does anyone remember Dick Cheney saying, in response to exit polls during the 2006 elections which showed that only 17% of Americans supported the Bush administration’s policy on Iraq, that “I don’t think any president worth his salt, can afford to make decisions of this magnitude according to the polls…This president does not make policy based on public opinion polls”?

I seem to remember a lot of people who now support the Obama administration’s policy in Afghanistan blindly were pretty upset with Cheney’s obvious contempt for democracy and the will of the people…

…nah, I must be misremembering.
