It’s the perception. Obama voted against the surge in 2007 , and spoke out against it ( and by association, Petraeus) loudly.
The young/new/first-time voters who turned out for him were sure he was the Make love Not War prez, the anti-Bush. Now that he’s hanging in there, many of them are just demoralized.

Well, it just stinks to be them. I’ll say this for Obama, he does understand that to simply cut and run would be a disastrous idea. He’ll lose some far-left votes for that stand, but he got a small bit of respect from me for being able to adapt.
