The "Decider" can't be happy about this. A new Newsweek poll has him at 30% approval. (CBS has him at a wretched 28%.) And this must be particularly galling:
The president’s approval ratings are at their lowest point in the poll’s history—30 percent—and more than half the country (58 percent) say they wish the Bush presidency were simply over, a sentiment that is almost unanimous among Democrats (86 percent), and is shared by a clear majority (59 percent) of independents and even one in five (21 percent) Republicans. Half (49 percent) of all registered voters would rather see a Democrat elected president in 2008, compared to just 28 percent who’d prefer the GOP to remain in the White House.
Oooh, that's GOTTA hurt when nearly 3 out of every 5 of your fellow citizens want you out NOW. And that generic Democratic advantage in 2008 can't be good news for the party of war, hate, bigotry, corruption, and lies. (Splitting the undecideds would give the Democrats a 61-39 advantage in the generic presidential race--Johnson over Goldwater territory.)
The barking right wing fanatics from National Review, FrontPage, and all the other wingnut idiot publications can't deny it--Bush is rapidly heading into Nixon approval ratings. Of course, Bush will react like any other cornered animal. He is more dangerous than ever in such a situation, and will therefore lash out in desperation. Watch out Iran--Bush is willing to kill hundreds of thousands of your citizens to save his miserable pride. And more death and dismemberment await our brave soldiers because of Bush's need to feel like a real by-God hero.
Stop the son of a bitch. Stop him now. The cornered animal has to be neutralized before he takes any more victims with him. The American people want him out. Let's at least stop him before he kills more.
