Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Seems the rest of the world is catching up with us "lefties" and recognizing that The Resident is sliding down that slippery slope to a well-earned family tradition of one-term presidencies.
Here are some excerpts from an Associated Press article written by Ron Fornier, entitled, "GOP Frets Over Bush in 2004."
"WASHINGTON (July 22) - For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, rank-and-file Republicans say they are worried about President Bush's reelection chances based on the feeble economy, the rising death toll in Iraq and questions about his credibility...
"But the president has seen a drop in other early warning indicators, including the number of people expressing confidence in his credibility and leadership along with his handling of the economy and postwar Iraq...
"Republicans said there will be trouble for Bush if postwar Iraq continues to claim the lives of American troops. Another U.S. solider was killed Tuesday, bringing the total killed in action to 153 - six more than during the 1991 Gulf War...
(Here's my favorite part:)
"A recent CNN-Time poll found that 47 percent view Bush as a leader they can trust, down from 56 percent in March. A thin majority of voters said they harbor doubts about his leadership..."

I guess between skyrocketing budget deficits, rampant unemployment, senior citizens still without affordable prescription medicines, a war that wages on, no weapons of mass destruction found, no Bin Laden and no Saddam located, lying during the state of the union address and blaming it on the CIA director, and his multi million dollar publicity stunt of landing in a jet onto the deck of an aircraft carrier while family members and friends of genuine soldiers had to wait on shore to see their military loved ones, people are starting to see that this guy's all bullshit and no substance.
Like Democratic candidate Howard Dean, I started bitching about this dimwitted clown early.
I'm glad others are waking up and starting to connect the dots. Forty-seven percent in the polls is just plain horrible, and mark my words, in a month or so he'll WISH he still had 47 percent.
