    Bush is Dishonest? Whaaaat?

    Stardate 4243.2

    "I swear by this pinky finger that Saddam is Osama's brother...or something."

    WASHINGTON - The last two weeks certainly have been eventful ones in America and across the globe: President Bush gave a prime-time speech on Iraq and attended a G-8 summit in Scotland; Sandra Day O’Connor announced her retirement from the Supreme Court (with perhaps another retirement on the way); and suicide bombers killed approximately 50 people in London. After these events, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that Bush’s overall job rating has slipped and that his rating for being “honest and straightforward” has dropped to its lowest point.

    The survey, which was conducted from July 8-11 among 1,009 adults, and which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, finds that respondents, by a 49 percent-to-46 percent margin, disapprove of Bush’s job performance. That’s a drop from the last NBC/Journal poll in May, when 47 percent approved and 47 percent disapproved. In addition, the only time when Bush’s job rating has been worse was in June 2004, when 45 percent approved of his performance.
    Gee... do you think? I imagine now that the Rove Fiasco is in full force, his ratings will drop even more. I really, honestly, don't understand how so many people can believe the smorgasboard of crap this guy and his administration feed them every day. Cripes, I don't even understand him half the time since his grasp of the english language is akin to that of some sort of hinterland hillbilly... (no offence to hinterland hillbillies anywhere).

    Furthermore, only 41 percent give Bush good marks for being “honest and straightforward” — his lowest ranking on this question since he became president. That’s a drop of nine percentage points since January, when a majority (50 percent to 36 percent) indicated that he was honest and straightforward. This finding comes at a time when the Bush administration is battling the perception that its rhetoric doesn’t match the realities in Iraq, and also allegations that chief political adviser Karl Rove leaked sensitive information about a CIA agent to a reporter. (The survey, however, was taken just before these allegations about Rove exploded into the current controversy.)
    Why does it take an outsider (a Canadian) to see through the wall of BS this guy continuously spouts? Well maybe not anymore. For a guy who cannot string together two coherent english sentences, he sure is eloquent when it comes to covering the Administration's proverbial arses by continuously stating his link between 9-11 and Iraq. Or Iraq's WMDs. Or Rove. Or anything.

    Oh yeah, I thought it was their policy to terminate anyone leaking agent's info out. And... George W. Senior FIRED Rove when he was caught leaking information to Robert Novak way back in 1992!

    A typical family watching FOX news coverage of Bush's attempted Speeches...

    You saw it first on the X-Files (Fox Mulder meets "The Lone Gunmen" and then in a terrible movie about Aliens who are allergic to our atmosphere... Put on those tinfoil hats now. Save yourselves. Save your country!
