Bush's Credibility Dropping?

According to this poll, it is:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20050714/ts_nm/bush_poll_dc




WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush's personal credibility appears to be eroding at a time when Iraq has become the top public priority and the White House is engulfed in controversy over senior Bush adviser Karl Rove, a poll released on Wednesday suggested.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed the percentage of Americans who believe Bush is "honest and straightforward" fell to 41 percent from 50 percent in January, while those who say they doubt his veracity climbed to 45 percent from 36 percent.

The telephone survey, which was conducted July 8-11 and included responses from 1,009 adults, also showed that Iraq has replaced jobs as the leading issue among Americans.

With a 3.1 percent margin of error, polling data said 40 percent see Iraq as the top priority for the United States, against 34 percent who view jobs as their main concern. In January, jobs ranked highest among 46 percent to 39 percent for Iraq.

The new poll also showed Bush's overall job approval rating slipping to 46 percent from 47 percent in May, while his disapproval rating crept upward to 49 percent from 47 percent.

The White House this week has been reeling amid controversy over Rove, the top Bush political adviser who was named by a Time magazine reporter as one of the sources who identified CIA agent Valerie Plame to the media in 2003.

Democrats have called on Bush to fire Rove or block his access to classified information. But Bush, who originally pledged to dismiss anyone responsible for leaking Plame's identity, said he will withhold judgment on his deputy chief of staff for now.

Very interesting.

This is such BS. Everyone that works in that community knows this is such a joke.

So just to clarify.

You consider the outing of an undercover CIA agent to be 'a joke', correct?

It does not matter

he still has the red states, his base

all of the stuff they are putting out is to shore up THAT base

this nonsense that Rove was helping reporters so
that they would get the story right
is only something a true believer would choose to swallow
so they don't have to admit their leaders are morally bankrupt.

I'm a conservative Republican, but based on what I know about the story, the idea of "outing" a CIA agent disgusts me, and I wish he'd be fired for it, at the least.

But is there something about this story I don't know, that might make me see things differently?

lol, i shudder to think people actually believe that man has some credibility.

He is the most vile, evil and dispicable man on this earth. I would shake osama bin laden's hand before i shake george w bush (needless to say, i wouldnt touch each of them with a ten foot pole in reality)

he and his whole administration should be impeached and a new election take place..

i mean if america can get so caught up with a president having a bit of sex on the side but continue to turn a blind eye to this bullshit...what hope is there?

i strongly dislike bush, think he has no credibility, and have marched against Iraq, done grass roots work to help Kerry, and would never touch that man with a 10 foot pole either.

however, calling him the worst person alive is hugely offensive, not just to me put to people who have to live (and die) under real dictatorships.

Well he is to ME. Do you not think he is a dictator himself? Just because he's called 'president' doesn't mean he acts like one.
I didn't say it was fact. It was just my opinion, which i happen to believe in.

I think its offensive to attack a country under false pretences.
I think its offensive to even suggest that women shouldnt be allowed to have abortions
I thinkits offensive that we hold back advanced medical research because of stupid christian fundamentalists.
I think its offensive to even ARGUE about same sex rights.

If you don't agree to my opinon, thats totally cool, but to say its offensive to people who live under dictaotirships, unless you do, you really cant say that you know?
