President Bush Hits New Lows

This is the third or fourth time in a year that Bush’s ratings have found new lows. Perhaps between Bush’s numbers and the numbers for Congress, a new meaning for “race to the bottom” has been found. From the AP via MSN:

WASHINGTON – President Bush’s approval ratings hit a series of new lows in an AP-Ipsos poll that also shows Republicans surrendering their advantage on national security — grim election-year news for a party struggling to stay in power.

Democratic leaders predicted they will seize control of one or both chambers of Congress in November. Republicans said they feared the worst unless the political landscape quickly changes.

“These numbers are scary. We’ve lost every advantage we’ve ever had,� GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio said. “The good news is Democrats don’t have much of a plan. The bad news is they may not need one.�

Meanwhile, Workingforchange.com has an action to “call out President Bush, Leaker-in-Chief,” and hold him to his promise to fire anyone who leaked information. According to the action email:

A bombshell has just emerged from the investigation of Scooter Libby for perjury and obstruction of justice that President Bush himself may have authorized the leak of classified information to discredit critics of his rush to war. He’s repeatedly said he wants to get to the bottom of this matter, and that he would fire anyone found to have leaked classified information.

  1. Indeed! Democrats don’t need a plan. And what is the GOP plan? More of the SOS? Given the appalling lawlessness of a dictatorial regime, there is NO downside to voting for anyone who opposes Bush. The GOP strategists are a bunch of geniuses alright! It takes talent to take a 90 point lead in the polls to oblivion by way of incompetence and sheer crookedness. Here are the highlights of a how to book on how the GOP achieved it: 1) put a criminal idiot in the White House; 2) back him up when he thumbs his nose at the rule of law; 3) identify yourself with torture, war crimes, and the slaughter of thousands of civilians; 4) make sure der Fuhrer gets caught bad mouthing the Constitution in profane terms; 5) tell everyone that der Fuhrer is above the law, in other words, if he does it, it’s legal; 6) spy on millions of civilians who have never even run a red light let alone contemplated waging a campaign of terrorism. The GOP should prohibited from holding public office until they can all me made to pass an IQ test.
