Among Republicans (36% of adults registered to vote in the survey), 84% approve of the way Bush is handling his job and 12% disapprove. Among Democrats (38% of adults registered to vote in the survey), 18% approve and 77% disapprove of the way Bush is handling his job. Among Independents (26% of adults registered to vote in the survey), 17% approve and 75% disapprove of the way Bush is handling his job as president.
As Kos points out, no wonder Rove is now out there playing the "treason card" -- it is a desperate measure for a group that known things aren't getting better. Only by getting their GOP corps to yell loud and long (and last night this was being acted upon by the Foxnews follies) about traitors and treason can Bush have clout -- circle the wagons baby.
Problem is, there is plenty more bad news coming that means being a decent fucking human being will make you a traitor.
Like this for instance:
Washington has for the first time acknowledged to the United Nations that prisoners have been tortured at US detention centres in Guantanamo Bay, as well as Afghanistan and Iraq, a UN source said.
The acknowledgement was made in a report submitted to the UN Committee against Torture, said a member of the ten-person panel, speaking on on condition of anonymity.
"They are no longer trying to duck this, and have respected their obligation to inform the UN," the Committee member told AFP.
"They they will have to explain themselves (to the Committee). Nothing should be kept in the dark."
UN sources said it was the first time the world body has received such a frank statement on torture from US authorities.
I suppose this can be discounted by the press as "something we already know".
Oh, and soon there are, by court order, going to be made available many other pictures of the torture scenese enabled and encouraged by Bush & Al Gonzales.
