That's My Bush!

From Editor & Publisher Magazine:

President Bush's approval rating has plunged to the lowest level of any president since World War II at this point in his second term, the Gallup Organization reported today.

All other presidents who served a second term had approval ratings well above 50% in the March following their election, Gallup reported.

Bush's current rating is 45%. The next lowest was Reagan with 56% in March 1985.

I have to say, despite the absolute crap job Chimpy actually does, I'm still surprised. I mean, Americans have had 5 years now to adjust to this moron's gross incompetence and, let's face it, utter lunacy.

Why the change of heart all of the sudden? Terri Schiavo finally kicks the bucket and the fillibuster gets to stick around, and all of the sudden you right-wing wackos are abandoning your golden boy?

I'm just saying the GW game plan doesn't seem to have changed much since his re-election:

  • Defending pointless, tragic foreign war? Check.
  • Pushing through legislation to cripple the poor while pretending to stand up for the common man? Check.
  • Promoting rich friends to influential government positions? Triple check.
  • Photo ops in ridiculous hats?

  • Um, check.

So, latest Gallup pollees, where the hell have you been? You're just discovering that this guy is a dirtbag?

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm glad you've finally caught up. But come on...try to follow the national discourse a little better next time. This is important stuff.

Wow, that's an incredible deficit. But come on, Lonnie, be fair to those Americans. Bush SAID he was going to change. Since when do entrenched oligarchs renege?

Where do you get those great Bush pics? You must have access to some secret photo archive.

It cracks me up when you refer to the head of our nation as "Chimpy."
Don't you find his decline in popularity a bit validating?

Great photo!
