The elevator keeps going down


According to a new CBS poll, President Bush now has only a 35% approval rating, and a whopping 57% disapproval rating.

Richard Nixon in November 1973, at roughly the same point in the second term where Bush finds himself, had a 27% approval rating.

At the same point in second terms, Bill Clinton had a 57% approval rating, Reagan had 65%, Eisenhower had 58%.

And some people come here and say I’m the one out of touch for being so upset and disappointed in my president. I’m with the solid majority now, and the ones who are out of touch are those who still defend the great wartime president.

Too bad those in the 57% took so long to reach those conclusions. It’s not like Dubya recently morphed into an incompetent leader. He was always one. ๐Ÿ™

I’m currious. What is it exactly that makes you feel he is incompetent?

I’m curious. What makes you think he is competent?

Sorry to rain on your parade Richard, but as far a I can see, a sizable portion of this disaproval rating is nothing to do with Bush’s compitance, or even his policies, but is because of high gas prices reducing businesses profit margines and consumer’s disposable incomes.

Not true, ACB – 52 percent say hecan’t be trusted because of Plamegate. That’s a wonderful sign. And the dead in Iraq are destroying him.
