AP: Bush plummeting with GOP voters, white males...everybody
Nearly four out of five Americans, including 70 percent of Republicans, believe civil war will break out in Iraq the bloody hot spot upon which Bush has staked his presidency. Nearly 70 percent of people say the U.S. is on the wrong track, a 6-point jump since February.

SNIP

The poll suggests that most Americans wonder whether Bush is up to the job. The survey, conducted Monday through Wednesday of 1,000 people, found that just 37 percent approve of his overall performance. That is the lowest of his presidency.

Bush's job approval among Republicans plummeted from 82 percent in February to 74 percent, a dangerous sign in a midterm election year when parties rely on enthusiasm from their most loyal voters. The biggest losses were among white males.

SNIP

Personally, far fewer Americans consider Bush likable, honest, strong and dependable than they did just after his re-election campaign.

The educated elite saw most of Bush's failings and spoke up, only to be attacked for their foresight. Some of this administration's incompetence and hypocricy was beyond imagination. The disastrous budget, corporate-centered legistation, illegal war, rank cronyism, callous indifference to working people and the poor, erosion of civil rights, right-shift ofthe Supreme Court, contempt to and from the international community, daily pack of lies were predictable, though.

Anybody who couldn't anticipate most of what happened is insufferably stupid or willfully blind. I'm with you Dawgs: Fuck 'em.

10. Sometimes you just have to beat people over the head with a 2X4
Just to get their attention. I sincerely hope that every Bush voter loses his or her job and speed-dives into abject poverty.

There was a report about a bunch of bushsuckers in Plant City, Florida on NPR the other day. One woman was actually saying that she hated illegal immigrants but without them, her strawberry fields would never get picked. Hatred, greed? Greed, hatred? It's awful when your only two core values come into conflict. And of course, she was a nice CHRISTIAN lady. Assholes. All of them.

11. People lost their jobs and were publicly smeared for telling the truth
I think a whole bunch of people deserve apologies, along with back pay and civil damages

3. Looks like it is about time for another 9/11
Bet it will either of a nuclear device, the bird flu, or some other bioagent.

Bet it will also be around March 20th when Iran goes on the euro and establishes its own petroleum market!

Wanna bet!!!???

4. Hard to believe that it took
over five yrs for the rest of the country to see what we did from the beginning. Will they learn from their mistake though or will they fall for it all over again with yet another repuke? That will be the big test for America.
