Bush’s approval rating is now 34%, now rivaling Richard Nixon’s numbers in May 1973. Short of another terrorist attack, I can’t think of a single factor that will propel Bush’s numbers over 50% in the next nine months before midterm elections. The Democrats need to be on this like as an unneutered cocker spaniel climbing up a Crisco-smeared leg.
Don’t underestimate the power of smear and “we’ll protect America and the Democrats won’t.” However, I would tend to agree with you if there are more political blunders, such as the ports deals, in the future.
And don’t underestimate Karl Rove. If only he’d go hunting with Cheney.
Tomorrow is my birthday, and I already got a present I’ve been waiting for since…forEVAH.
And that is Bush’s numbers. Finally down to 34 percent. I say, about time.
(No, I’m not going to tell you how old I am. But I will share with you that every single one of my childhood tormentors/abusers is now either DEAD or in an insititution for the criminally insane, or prison.)
Bottom line: He who laughs last, laughs best.
The days of the Republican fascist swine are numbered. I can feel the earth moving beneath my feet.
Don’t underestimate the Democrats’ ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. We tried the “how can anybody vote for Bush” approach in 2004 and it didn’t work out. And don’t talk to me about Florida or Ohio or Nader. Get a Democratic candidate who can win convincingly and all that shit is moot.
