Bush's Approval Numbers Still in the Tank

Apparently all this talking head nonsense about the Alito nomination helping Bush is, well, nonsense. From Zogby:

In the face of rising gas prices, partisan sniping over Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, and a resumption of insurgent violence in Iraq, President Bush’s job approval rating has slipped into a post-holiday funk, again dipping below 40%, a new telephone poll by Zogby International shows.

His approval rating almost mirrors the percentage of respondents (40%) who said the nation overall is headed in the right direction.

The deterioration in the President’s numbers appears to be the result of eroding support among the investor class and others who supported him in his 2004 re-election bid, said Pollster John Zogby, President and CEO of Zogby International. And the problem is the Iraq war – just 34% of respondents said Mr. Bush was doing a good or excellent job managing the war, down from 38% approval in a Zogby poll taken in mid-October.



I find myself torn between wishing Bush would be a more responsible president and wishing his reign of error would just go ahead and implode completely.

The only silver lining here is that my faith in our fellow citizenry is being slowly restored.

I'm for implode completely

if it doesn't implode completely, then we will have no real change.

If we have five or ten Congressmen put in jail, Rove forced out of WH, Bush and Cheney dragged through the mud, Rumsfeld forced out of the WH - maybe, just maybe we can get some real reform through. Or, at least we can get the Republicans to stand up against real reform.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I hear Newt Gingrich has a plan....

and if you really want a big belly laugh just visit his web site. Right smack dab in the middle of it there is a link where you can download..get this...a walking tour of "Our Creator" in Washington. I'm too scared to click on the link to find out if they consider Newt their "creator" or if they have video of God Almighty himself walking the streets of Washington.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
