Well, there was a lot of fuss about CBS being rigged to show low Bush numbers. It looks like some other polls think Bush is below 40%. Discuss.

I think he's lucky to be as high as he is so

Given the lack of understanding of what is going on in Iraq, along misinterpretation, I am inclined to agree with you. However, the statement made my Vandelay is also correct.

On the contrary, I think they're just starting to understand what's happening in Iraq.

Better invade Iran. I love the smell of a fresh invasion in the early morning.

I think invading Iran would get him to at least 42.

Invade Mexico, and I'd become Republican again.

I don't think that's how it goes.

Meh, doesn't matter. The Democrats are too limp to capitalize anyway. Plus this administration is like teflon. Nothing seems to stick.

You really think they can understand with how things are reported*, how we are now witnessing a last-gasp effort by terrorists, primarily foreign, to incite a civil since all of their other efforts have so far failed to achieve any of their strategic goals?






*Not meant as commentary on the bias of news agencies, rather an indictment of what and how they report.

Something's wrong. I haven't heard the phrase "scared biddy" yet in this thread.

Is there any need to state the obvious?

Is there anything on Bush's agenda that he has any hope of getting passed?

Funny - I haven't heard anything about a further reduction in the top income tax rate for quite some time. I wonder what happened?

Oh, how about getting the treaty with India through? I assume you missed the recent passing of the Patriot Act.

Funny - I haven't heard anything about raising the top income tax rate for some time either. And it appears there are efforts in Congress to keep the capital gains and divident tax rates where they are too.

What was that vote on the Patriot Act renewal again?

I think it barely passed on a party-line vote.

Itís just amazing how fast the smug have fallen.

Everyone remember how arrogant he was after his re-election? I all he could talk about was how he had political capital and was going to use it. What the heck has accomplished since then? Nothing really and all the capital now appears to have all been spent. Social Security dismantlement I mean fixing. His proposal is dead in the water. I remember when some of his supporters in the forum crowed about how he turned the tables on the Democrats, redefined the issue and had taken control. Boy were they wrong on that one.

What a heap of self servicing crap. Yes anyone who doesnít agree with you is just ignorant of the facts. Isnít that what conservatives often accuse liberals of doing?

Nonsense. I spefically stated that my comments were not about ideology, rather than about the quick, sensationalistic, and ephemeral nature of American news.

Regardless, if my amazingly brief and admittedly shallow assessment is way off-base, please let me know.

Maybe C-Man would have the exact numbers. It's a good thing the President didn't need any Democrats to vote for it, what with it being such an bad and wrongheaded piece of legislation.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems where Bush is getting in the most trouble lately is when his opponents can get to the right of him on security. When they try to stay on the traditional left they get nowhere.

Ultimately, this is a reflection of the state of the nation, not the administration.
I think it is a direct reflection on the administration. The country has been deeply divided during and since the Clinton administration, but even through the darkest days of Monica-gate, Clinton still had job approval ratings of 60+%.

However he had much lower polls earlier in his administration. Like 36% in 1993. Maybe it had something to do with the economy and people's attention to what was going on.

So it's the economy that drives the people's perception? I'm told by my Conservative friends that the economy is booming. What gives?
