Talkin' trash to the garbage around me.

A parallel

Something occurred to me reading this statement:
Mr Bush and his most senior staff embarked on a huge public relations exercise to sell the plan to send an extra 20,000 troops to Iraq, aware of formidable opposition in Congress which already promises an embarrassing vote next week rejecting the new strategy.

The last time a massive PR blitz came in the face of public opposition and Congressional skepticism was in early 2005 with Bush's Social Security privatization scheme. IIRC, Bush's stock fell as he waged that campaign. Now, facing into an even stronger headwind, might we see the 30 percent barrier cracked?
