These days it’s hard to get people to agree on anything. Taxes, abortion and gun control are all divisive topics. But the one thing that everyone can agree on is that Obama’s plan to send weapons to terrorists is a really terrible idea.
White people and black people. Catholics and Protestants. Men and women. College kids and senior citizens. Hispanics and Evangelical Christians. Every conceivable group is against the plan by sizable margins.
I don’t think it gets more definitive than this. Not sending weapons to terrorists is a policy that has captured the hearts of Americans young and old, white and black, Democrat and Republican.
The policy that is so incredibly popular on the editorial pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post and among senators and foreign policy experts, is the least popular thing among ordinary people that could be imagined. A proposal to have pedophiles hand out ice cream cones full of toxic waste to small children would probably poll better than running guns to terrorists.
