GOP Frets Over Bush's Political Standing
President's Poll Ratings Sink Amid Worries Over Economy, War
By RON FOURNIER, AP
WASHINGTON (June 15) - Fearing that President Bush's political problems may become their own, Republicans in Congress and elsewhere are beginning to yearn for the good old days of seven months ago, when he had somebody to run against.
Voters were worried in November about the economy and the war in Iraq, but they didn't take it out on the incumbent on Election Day. They are now.
Bush's poll ratings are among the worst since he took office, declining in virtually every category since his win over Democratic Sen. John Kerry. From his handling of the economy, foreign policy and the war in Iraq to his job approval rating and voters' assessment of the country's direction, the president's political scores are in serious decline..."
Finally, the electorate is waking up and seeing that Bush is incompetent in every major category.
They have seen that the packaging does not match the content. The Karl Rove Toy Factory has sold us a piece of crap that doesn't work.
For all the years the GOP in the House and Senate rubber stamped the flawed Bush agenda, it's time we pay them back and weed them out come election time.
As I predicted long ago, many GOP weasels in both Houses are distancing themselves from the lame duck, hoping their past sycophantic behavior toward Bush doesn't catch up to them and bite them in the ass when they run for reelection.
But we know by now, the GOP stands for:
Huge deficit spending
Backroom deals with the Saudis and the petroleum industry
Human Rights violations
Christian Fundamentalist extremism
They need to give us our country back and find jobs they are qualified to do, like used car sales, telemarketing and preaching on obscure cable channels.
