Welcome to the Program, America!!

Well, a metaphorical "good morning" to you, America! Glad you could wake up and join us.

With an ever-widening glee, I saw Bush's latest numbers this morning. According to an AP-Ipsos poll, it seems that more and more Americans, both liberal and conservative alike, disapprove of his performance, question his character and no longer consider him a strong leader against terrorism. On the personal side. Americans that consider Bush likable, honest, strong and dependable are far fewer than just after his re-election campaign.

Nearly four out of five Americans, including 70 percent of Republicans, believe civil war will break out in Iraq - the bloody hot spot upon which Bush has staked his presidency. Nearly 70 percent of people say the U.S. is on the wrong track, a jump of 6-points since February.

By comparison, President Bill Clinton had a public approval rating in the mid 60s at this stage of his second term in office. Richard Nixon, who was increasingly tangled up in the Watergate scandal, was in the high 20s in early 1974. Bush currently sits at 30%.

What I want to know is...What took so long and what are we going to do about it?!

  1. Egads, never mind Bush, you've stopped blogging. Be like me. I blog even though nobody ever reads it. Although you did comment once on mine which led me to question who this exceptional individual is who would recognize the brilliance of my analyses - so here I am. By virtue of association, you too are brilliant.

    Bush will never be impeached. Americans don't impeach presidents who make their nation a rogue state (breaking international laws), only those who are guttless, blatantly break American law so as to prevent successful feigned ignorance of the masses, and are kinda shifty looking (think Nixon). Ahhh, but maybe I'm wrong.

    I really like your profile - beautifully written.
