Bush Approval at New Low


news.yahoo.com

President George W. Bush's public approval rating fell to the lowest of his presidency and may be dragging down scores for Republican presidential hopefuls, according to a Newsweek poll.

Bush's approval rating fell to 28 percent this week, the lowest since a similar score by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, the year of the Iran hostage crisis. The poll also found that 71 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the U.S.

Can president Bush make it to be get the lowest rating in score in the history of U.S. presidents? The way things are going during his presidency in Iraq he could certainlty fall even lower then president Carter. It looks like not only the people of the World do not like what president Bush is doing, but people of America too. Only time will tell, how low can he go.

Only the next 18 months will tell. But I'm sure that if it happens, we can all expect party invitations to your house because you will be celebrating.
Have you already bought the party supplies?

I don't exactly feel like partying, considering the mess our country is in, and considering that Bush is still in office.

I'm surprised his rating is that high, actually. But the good news is that 3/4 of the U.S. population realize what a mess Bush has gotten us into. Maybe the sheep are looking up, now.

That puts him right on par with the new Congress, which has an approval rating of about 35%.

I'm glad Bush is not like "finger in the wind" Bill Clinton, Clinton cared about approval ratings, and that is why he will go down in history as a "do-nothing" President whose non actions led directly to 9/11.

Bush on the otherhand will be hailed as a top tier President by historians who are not even born yet.

To get record the lowest poll ratings Bush would have poll 21% to beat the 22% poll rating Truman had when he left office. I'm sure that Bush will find a way to redeem his reputation after he leaves office much like Nixon did. I don't know how Bush is going to redeem himself he hasn't done much on the home front despite having control of both houses for most of the time he is in office.

Monkey man will be leaving a royal mess in this world, and that is nothing to celebrate about.
Lets see, this should take about 50 years to fix somewhat??? Who will get to fix it OR MAKE IT WORSE???
And how soon we will forget who did it all, who started it all, who lied and messed up our country beyond repair? Not just OUR country but the WORLD??? That's one hell of a job he is leaving behind for the night crew to clean up.

I say that those responsible for the way things are now should be held accountable for their actions right NOW. This way, the People will have had the chance to speak, and will get their way, rather than just being pacified as they seem to have become. It's time to stand up and be heard.

And the-puppet-on-a-string president that followed did EVERYTHING to let it happen.

PLEASE READ!

By July 10, senior CIA counterterrorism officials, including Cofer Black, had collected a body of intelligence that they first presented to Tenet.

“The briefing [Black] gave me literally made my hair stand on end,” Tenet wrote. “When he was through, I picked up the big white secure phone on the left side of my desk – the one with a direct line to Condi Rice – and told her that I needed to see her immediately to provide an update on the al-Qa’ida threat.”

[...]Despite the July 10 briefing, other senior Bush administration officials continued to pooh-pooh the seriousness of the al-Qaeda threat. Two leading neoconservatives at the Pentagon – Stephen Cambone and Paul Wolfowitz – suggested that the CIA might be falling for a disinformation campaign.

But the evidence of an impending attack continued to pour in. At one CIA meeting in late July, Tenet wrote that Rich B. told senior officials bluntly, “they’re coming here,” a declaration that was followed by stunned silence.

The intelligence community’s evidence was summarized in the special PDB that was delivered to Bush while he was vacationing at his ranch in Crawford.

But nothing was done. Eventually Tenet had to go down to Crawford to convience the president about the seriousness in the threat.

In late August 2001, when aggressive presidential action might have changed the course of U.S. history, CIA Director George Tenet made a special trip to Crawford, Texas, to get George W. Bush to focus on an imminent threat of a spectacular al-Qaeda attack only to have the conversation descend into meaningless small talk.

While Tenet and Bush made small talk about “the flora and the fauna,” al-Qaeda operatives put the finishing touches on their plans.

It wasn’t until Sept. 4 – a week before 9/11 – when senior Bush administration officials, including Rice and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, “finally reconvened in the White House Situation Room” to discuss counter-terrorism plans “that had been lingering unresolved all summer long,” Tenet wrote.

Above snippets are from a rendering of George Tenet's memoires "At the Center of the Storm".

No, Georgy boy will be known to history as an alcholic fun of gulfing and fishing and who made a mess out of the world in his pursuit for the last oil.
