Who actually 'likes' W anymore?
I have a reason for asking such a stupid question so bear with me - - I travel a lot for my job and mostly visit the SE and south central parts of the US.

Everywhere I have been in the last month I have heard nothing but outright HATRED for *....and this is from HIS states, AR, AL, SC, FL, etc.

I thought I could spew with the best of them about el creepo and his gang of thugs, but I gotta tell ya, some of these people make me look like a beginner AND they even will admit they voted for him AND they want him out NOW...not tomorrow....NOW. And they ain't shy about saying they are pestering their congress members to get rid of them all.

I bet I have crossed paths with over 100 people and EVERY one of them has had it. They want that entire crew up there out and gone and behind bars.

So who is this 30% that likes him? I haven't found even .001% who like him.

Sorry, but I find this absolutely amazing as two years ago, these same people had posters complete with RWB banners around his picture and he was little jeebus to them. Now, he is crap.

They want the Supreme Court investigated, they want Bush, Cheney, Lil Al, and Condi OUT.

My question is this then, why doesn't the Congress put impeachment on the table or investigations? The general populace of this country is MORE than ready to dump this circus of idiots.

Cheney's comments last week - whoa, he better not go hunting where I was at the last couple weeks! Let's just say, they didn't appreciate some old man TELLING them their kids would do what HE told them to do and WHEN he told them.

One guy has a son who was home for 2 days and got notified by a personal visit from another military guy to report back to duty...he was to be home for 6 months on an r&r becuase of his mental state - he's back in Iraq.

It's just amazing to me that our leaders are deaf to what needs to be done when there is so much animosity and hatred toward this administration.

What's going on? Someone enlighten me. I think we are looking at a revolution as people are sick and tired of war, war profiteering and all the corruption in DC. It just needs a leader to start it from what I have been hearing.

1. If you can stand it, go over to FR and check out "Daily Dose of Dubya."
The posters there are positively ate up with breathless admiration for this loser. It's a horrifyingly fascinating look at what happens when cousins marry, I guess.

4. My husband asks that very question every few days. We've lived in Al
all our lives and people have changed. You hear a lot of what you posted, downright outrage, and I've not heard anyone stand up for "them" in a very long time.

I'm with you, where are the supporters? "30 %" I think that number is being stretched as far or as long as possible.

9. Yeah, it's scary
in a good way....I can't print what all the discussions bordered on, but I never expected that kind of outrage from the cradle of the Bible belt.

They want no excuses and they want him and his cronies out. They don't want him to finish this month much less 2 years more.....

It just amazed me that's all.

5. One of my coworkers
who states that she always votes prolife.

Just for a good laugh-I did finally corner her and get her to admit that her "prolife" mentality only applies to white, middle and upppermiddleclass individuals living in the US. According to her,we're being overrun w/ minorities and other countries are "getting too lippy". She also has problems w/ anyone that lives at the poverty level, claiming that it's their fault and that she shouldn't have to help keep lazy people alive.

13. She said the other day that min wage didn't need to be raised.
She said that there should be no min wage-it would make people want to worker harder to earn their money instead of someone "giving" it to them. The topic came up because min wage was increased in Missouri on Jan 1.

As to corporations-she thinks that we should give them incentives to stay here in the US.

(I know I don't post too often in GD. As an FYI-I am usually referred to as a "bleeding heart." You czn guess how I look forward to her conversations!)

14. there are the insane (like at FR and the hardest-core religiously insane)
there are the rich-and-still-getting-richer

there also is a vast reservoir of ignorant, uninformed, don't-give-a-flying-warm-squirt-about-anything-but their-golf-game who decided they were "conservatives" during the raygun era and haven't bothered to even think about it since. I still here from some of these people how they'd rather have a beer with king george than with kerry.

15. Have heard it myself, just last Thursday.
I teach an art class after school in a community center. We meet in a large room with a petition separating my class from a senior citizens pilate's class. Last week as both activities were ending....I heard it. The seniors in the pilate class were in a major rant against Bush. I dashed through the petitions to join in. Everyone was in agreement -- not one Bush defender in the whole entire group.

The added bonus - this town is so red that they don't even have a local Democratic committee.

Maybe they should be seriously thinking about putting impeachment on the table.

16. Here's Molly's take
from Call Me a Bush-Hater, November/December 2003.
Among the more amusing cluckings from the right lately is their appalled discovery that quite a few Americans actually think George W. Bush is a terrible president.

Robert Novak is quoted as saying in all his forty-four years of covering politics, he has never seen anything like the detestation of Bush. Charles Krauthammer managed to write an entire essay on the topic of "Bush-haters" in Time Magazine as though he had never before come across a similar phenomenon.

By now, quite a few people who aren't even liberal are starting to say, "Wha the hey?" We got no Osama, we got no Saddam, we got no weapons of mass destruction, the road map to peace in the Middle East is blown to hell, we're stuck in this country for $87 billion just for one year and no one knows how long we'll be there. And still poor Mr. Krauthammer is hard-put to conceive how anyone could conclude that George W. Bush is a poor excuse for a President.

Poor Bush is in way over his head, and the country is in bad shape because of his stupid economic policies.

If that makes me a Bush-hater, then sign me up.

17. I live in the red suburbs of Chicago, southwest.
very religious (except for mois) and very conservative. I mean, in a 2 mile radius, there are 14 churches (i miscounted earlier) and 1 bar.

there are no W stickers on any cars. In grocery stores, people openly discuss impeachment. Old ladies smile and nod agreeing with you when you mention that he is destroying the country. this is where in 2004, Bush earned 70% of the vote (he still lost illinois handily)

The yellowbellied Democrats in office had better wake up, because they are missing the boat. The WHOLE population is pissed and wants change. Only the Congress is missing the point. Then again, they are so used to being told what to do, first by the GOP, then the White House, that they have to learn how to break that habit. If they don't watch for serious changes in Dem primaries. The power of the internet tubes will force major changes and reallignments.
