According to Zogby, Bush's speech didn't do it for them. Didn't get the respose they were hoping for. I guess Rove will have to go back to the drawing board..

No Bounce: Bush Job Approval Unchanged by War Speech;
Question on Impeachment Shows Polarization of Nation;
Americans Tired of Divisiveness in Congress - Want Bi-Partisan Solution
New Zogby Poll

Thursday 30 June 2005

President Bush's televised address to the nation produced no noticeable bounce in his approval numbers, with his job approval rating slipping a point from a week ago, to 43%, in the latest Zogby International poll. And, in a sign of continuing polarization, more than two-in-five voters (42%) say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the President misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq.

My hot tub friends at the gym are mostly middle class, Christian, conservative, salt of the earth kind of folks. Not one of them even watched the Presidents speech. Granted it's beautiful here in the high=desert southwest in the evenings. I have detected an obvious mood swing to what direction I'm not sure. At one time they would passionatly defend the administration. Now they would rather talk about sex, pickup trucks, or how much they lost at the Indian casinos.

Whats up?

I guess its easier to avoid reality.

My aunt and uncle are classic country club Republicans. They came down for a vacation last year (to Charleston, SC) and we were out at a restaurant. I was talking about how much worse this current action in Iraq and the planning for it is/was; my aunt turned to me and said, "You mean in the Gulf War?" Me:
I said, "No. I am talking about the invasion of Iraq, 2003." I was incredulous. Yet had to maintain a neutral composure. With our troops suffering this clusterf**k it took everything in my power to respond kindly. The willfull ignorance of what is really happening is staggering.

Twice tonight I have seen this, ECK, twice tonight.
No problem, we will address this.

As for your topic:
Yeah, the polls after the Bush speech sure did not change much, did they?
Nope....but what does this poll also indicate that is not being mentioned:

The most widespread consensus among Americans is that a precipitous pullout of American troops would be harmful, a point repeatedly stressed by the president. Sixty-four percent of Americans say if troops were withdrawn before the situation stabilized in Iraq, it would do "more harm than good" to the United States. Just 28% say it would do "more good than harm."

Public: Pullout From Iraq Would Be Harmful to U.S.

So whether the polls changed in favor of Bush or not, the American people will not pack their bags and simply leave Iraq hanging like the American people and Government left the South Vietnamese hanging....
