Washington -- The most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history is sucking up money at the rate of $2 billion a day -- more than the cost of the Iraq war -- and throwing an awkward spotlight on GOP efforts to extend tax cuts on dividends and capital gains and shave Medicaid spending while thousands of poor people are homeless on the Gulf Coast.
Despite Republican assurances that President Bush's second-term agenda remains on track, Hurricane Katrina has dealt a blow to his plans to overhaul Social Security and the tax code, extend his signature tax cuts, shrink the federal deficit and stay the course in Iraq.

Even though this poll reflects the views of most Americans it doesn't matter. Bush will still be president until 2008 because he was re-elected. And seeing as he cannot run again after 2008 these polls mean nothing.
Actualy it does matter. If the Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rummsfeld Presidency is having such low approval ratings, the chances either of them get elected for anything again in 2008 is much smaller. Both Rice and Cheney have been named as posible runners in 2008 ya know.
