MSM need to drop the horse-shit, Bush has had NO BOUNCE...
...in his approval:

<snip>
Released: June 30, 2005
No Bounce: Bush Job Approval Unchanged by War Speech; Question on Impeachment Shows Polarization of Nation; Americans Tired of Divisiveness in CongressWant Bi-Partisan SolutionsNew Zogby Poll

President Bushs televised address to the nation produced no noticeable bounce in his approval numbers, with his job approval rating slipping a point from a week ago, to 43%, in the latest Zogby International poll. And, in a sign of continuing polarization, more than two-in-five voters (42%) say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the President misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq.

The Zogby America survey of 905 likely voters, conducted from June 27 through 29, 2005, has a margin of error of +/-3.3 percentage points.

Just one week ago, President Bushs job approval stood at a previous low of 44%but it has now slipped another point to 43%, despite a speech to the nation intended to build support for the Administration and the ongoing Iraq War effort. The Zogby America survey includes calls made both before and after the Presidents address, and the results show no discernible bump in his job approval, with voter approval of his job performance at 45% in the final day of polling.

Where voters live has some impact on their perceptions. The Presidents job rating remains relatively strong in the South, with 51% rating his performance favorably; in all other regions, those disapproving his performance are in the majority.

In a more significant sign of the weakness of the Presidents numbers, more Red State votersthat is, voters living in the states that cast their ballots for the Bush-Cheney ticket in 2004now rate his job performance unfavorably, with 50% holding a negative impression of the Presidents handling of his duties, and 48% holding a favorable view. The President also gets negative marks from one-in-four (25%) Republicansas well as 86% of Democrats and 58% of independents. (Bush nets favorable marks from 75% of Republicans, 13% of Democrats and 40% of independents.)

Impeachment Question Shows Bitterness of Divide

In a sign of the continuing partisan division of the nation, more than two-in-five (42%) voters say that, if it is found that President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should hold him accountable through impeachment. While half (50%) of respondents do not hold this view, supporters of impeachment outweigh opponents in some parts of the country.

Among those living in the Western states, a 52% majority favors Congress using the impeachment mechanism while just 41% are opposed; in Eastern states, 49% are in favor and 45% opposed. In the South, meanwhile, impeachment is opposed by three-in-five voters (60%) and supported by just one-in-three (34%); in the Central/Great Lakes region, 52% are opposed and 38% in favor.

Impeachment is overwhelmingly rejected in the Red Statesjust 36% say they agree Congress should use it if the President is found to have lied on Iraq, while 55% reject this view; in the Blue States that voted for Massachusetts Democrat John Kerry in 2004, meanwhile, a plurality of 48% favors such proceedings while 45% are opposed.

A large majority of Democrats (59%) say they agree that the President should be impeached if he lied about Iraq, while just three-in-ten (30%) disagree. Among President Bushs fellow Republicans, a full one-in-four (25%) indicate they would favor impeaching the President under these circumstances, while seven-in-ten (70%) do not. Independents are more closely divided, with 43% favoring impeachment and 49% opposed.

4. Hey, Orlando has a Meeting of the Mouths this September
....where James Caravel (yeah) liberal takes on four conservatives including: Sean Hannity, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh and the financial adviser guy Clark Howard. But I just heard that Limbaugh has dropped out. I guess he can't schedule any long range speaking tours with the possibility of going to jail, eh.
