I guess you will cheer him on when the approval ratings go up.

actually, W and the current administration have shot themselves in the foot on so many things, and the polls are finally reflecting this.

everything, and i do mean *everything*, he's suggested/proposed this term has been a total dud. from social security reform to the Terri Schiavo embarassment, what i'm hearing is panic from the GOP in the recent hysterical comments of Santorum and Rove. we've got at least three more grueling years of warfare in Iraq the public is getting rather squeamish, especially with "progress" -- however incremental it might be -- completely obscured by the smoke from a smoldering car. it's become quite obvious that the WH had absolutely no plan for the management of post-war Iraq and there's been no prgress made against the insurgency since the elections. in short: there's no place left to shift the blame.

so, what do you do? you ratched up the demagogury and appeal to blind emotion and patriotism (like its the Republican convention again). instead of dealing with Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, you bash Sen Durbin and "liberals." instead of acknowledging error and sketching a strategy for winning (or at least exiting), you divide the country into Americans and "liberals" and hope it works.

the public has, 10 months too late, finally seen that the Emperor has no clothes.

W is headed for the dustbin of history, an embarassment.

the big change is the disapprove number
he was at 45 in March with a disapprove of 49

now his disapprove is 53, which only means that conservatves and Republicans are far enough removed from the election cycle to admit his administration isn't getting it done.

But if there were an election in 2 weeks, that number would be 50+ because you gotta keep those gays from gettin married

Irvine, Bush will only be headed for the dustbin of history when the media pronounce him that way. Nixon disappeared for 10 yrs after he resigned and tried a comeback, and for a brief while it worked, but the media could not shut up about Watergate; they had made their verdict. So that's what he is still remembered for.

After today's Supreme Court refusal to hear the cases of the 2 journalists who are now due to go to prison for the Plame "outing" case, (one of whom did not even write about Plame at all), I don't think Bush is going to be consigned to anything anytime soon. We could have a 1929-caliber stock market crash and have this country go into another Depression, and he'd still get credit from the media for trying to stave off the inevitable--the inevitable, which became inevitable after the policies of Clinton's second term--NOT his own reckless policies in so many fields. Any Depression would be Clinton's fault, not his, to judge by the way the media is run today. No matter what he does, the media, and later historians, will issue a giant caveat. Did you notice in that Meet the Press show, that the host was more concerned about preserving Bush's image then talking about the One Campaign goals? Every time Bono turned the subject back to where it was supposed to be, Ruselll kept switiching it back to Bush's image.

I weep for the daily ongoing transformation of this country into a police state.

Bush fatigue is building, I guess.

I still believe in the integrity of the system so I think 51% is the actual number, which is unfortunate given that I was with the other 49% or so.
