Is it safe to predict that George W's "bounce"...
in the polls from this tragedy will be small and short-lived?

3. Reverse Bounce. His Numbers Should Fall.

4. He should get no bounce from this attack today.
His former good buddy Blair might have some less than kind words for him though.
But he did get a day off from the Rove treason/perjury scandal to his adm.

5. I don't think he'll bounce...This flys in the face of "we need to fight
them there so they don't come here."

6. He won't immediately get a bounce from this
But it does serve to soften up the sheeple some at a time when they were beginning to wake up.

7. I'll be really angry if he gets a bounce. It's his fault, after all,
allowing Osama to go his merry way, then stirring up a hornet's nest in Iraq.

11. IF Bush get s a bouncre from this
I will blame God for screwing with karma in order to let Bush not get punished and become an athiest and burn all of my religion books that I have.


I am losing faith in that Jerk anyways.

8. I think there will be a small bounce, mainly because
some Americans will see this as bush** successfully keeping the violence 'over there' rather than here.

Some people actually think of England as just another pansy European country, despite their gov't's support of the Iraq mess.

Yes, it's absurd, but I know some of these people. I try REALLY hard never to talk politics with them.

:shrug:

12. Exactly. "Over there" is past the big blue wet thing.
Anywhere out of the USA is "Over there". Especially across any ocean. Mexico I think would qualify as "over there" but I think Canada is still "here". I wonder if Hawaii is "over there" since it is part of "here". my head hurts

9. Terrorism transcends politics
As you remember I'm sure, there were terrorist attacks during the Clinton Administration too. If either Gore or Kerry had assumed office, we would also have had more terrorist attacks even though I'm sure the fight against terrorism would have been in much better shape than it is under the current regime.

Yes, Bush deserves a lot of fault. His policies have encouraged terrorism, not the other way around.

But we shouldn't let our hatred for Bush blind us. Terrorism is a problem that transcends politics and it's not going away any time soon no matter who occupies the White House.

14. I think the only bounce he's going to get out of this...
is the one he took when he fell off his bike.
