CNN/Gallup, no longer having to get the man re-elected have information that would cause a greater man than the President, one troubled by, say, consciousness, pause:
As for Bush, 49 percent of respondents said they approved of the job the president is doing. That number is down from his November approval rating of 55 percent. Bush is the first incumbent president to have an approval rating below 50 percent one month after winning re-election. The question had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
When asked how the United States has handled Iraq during the past year, 47 percent said things have gotten worse. Twenty percent said the situation has improved and 32 percent said it is about the same. The differences fell outside the question's margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The ONLY good news, if a marginal feeling that the economy is improving. Look for that to plummet soon as the "where's my Christman Bonus?" questions come in.
Oh, well, Bush still has the media on his side, whether it be ignoring each and every catastrophe, or focusing on the big issues like the greatest disaster in the history of the world, Posh Spice portraying the Virgin Mary in wax.
Now, if we compromised with the right-wing and agreed on creches in the public square as long as Posh Spice and the rest were to play the characters within the creche, with perhaps Ron Jeremy added as additional livestock, would that work?
