Notably missing are more reasonable options like "I still believe GW is an extremely poor President" or "I still strongly dislike most of the policies and ideals the man stands for."

In other words, by only presenting options that oppose Bush in an extremist wording such as "Bush is a clown" or "I am still a Bush hater", the pollster has perhaps intentionally set up the respondents, as unless they vote with option 1 or 2 and compromise their beliefs they are portrayed as radicals who hate another human being with a vengeance.

And that is why such a poll would never see the light of day in any respectable media outlet and also precisely why noone should really participate in it or lend any sort of credibility to the results.

Bush's 15 billion dollar African aid proposal is unprecedented for ANY leader/country, and should be admired for its selflessness. The next step is up to congress, not Bush. Dubya should be praised for this act, but, he is criticized?! He went out on a limb with this, can he do nothing right? It looks as though there is an anti-american bias, this man could have dedicated the whole hour to the African aids crisis, and some people would still resort to cynicism.

Cow of the Seas, I am a believer too.

How far has this world gone when a simple statement like that seems cynical.

Please respect people's boundaries as far as their names or s/ns are concerned. Some people don't mind nicknames, others do. When they make it very clear that a nickname is unacceptable, avoid using it. Thank you.

-accurate assesment Anoosh.

This Poll was never to be taken seriously...Some ppl dont get it.

However, this poll should-

USA/Gallop Poll , regarding "overall reaction" of Speech,
ppl polled were-


-50 % were very positive
-34% were somewhat positive
-11% -somewhat negative
-3% very negative
-2%-other)


hiphop-
great posts.
the billions dying have more love in their hearts, not hate.
My guess is they are not Bush Haters nor think Bush is a clown .
They are the silent majority.

Cow-
plez b quiet.

Sure it looks good on the tube, but MILLIONS are not marching.
These are in the "majority".
That said the people not marching are the SILENT MAJORITY .

Until you accept this fact you and others will continue live in a world of disillusionment and aggravation.

And I'm going to teach you a new word, diamond. It's called REPRESENTATION. See, like in Congress where the representatives of political parties and interest groups chose to take action, they are representing the rest of the nation. These people marching are those who chose to take action on their beliefs, not the only people who disagree with Bush as you would like to think. They are in fact representing many more people. There are countless more people who were not marching who still side with those who were marching. So don't try and lay down this BS statement trying to state as fact that everyone who wasn't marching supports Bush.

The simple fact that so many of these marches took place around the globe shows that the people marching represent a much larger portion of the population than just the marchers themselves. It's not a one-to-one ratio.

Until you accept this fact you and others will continue live in a world of disillusionment and aggravation.
thank u-

Diemen-
That was excellent.
A brillant comeback.
It really was.

Representation.
I understand your point on symbolism.

I do know this, as a fact, that several terrorist groups, communist groups, disident groups are being financed and paid to attend these demonstrations by Iraq and other extremist and terrorists organizations.

Your point is well taken though.

DB9
PS-How did u vote?

I voted for Bush is a clown , but in truth I am in between that and readjusting my views. Suffice it to say his speech was better than I thought it would be.
