The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press released this report today, putting Bush's overall approval measure at 33%, the lowest rating of his presidency.
In the aftermath of the Dubai ports deal, President Bush's approval rating has hit a new low and his image for honesty and effectiveness has been damaged. Yet the public uncharacteristically has good things to say about the role that Congress played in this high-profile Washington controversy.
So. Hooray, Congress. And hooray, public. Oh, one more quote from the Pew report:
Bush's personal image also has weakened noticeably, which is reflected in people's one-word descriptions of the president. Honesty had been the single trait most closely associated with Bush, but in the current survey "incompetent" is the descriptor used most frequently.
What took ya so long, America? Aw, never mind. Beer and pretzels at Cookiecrumb's!
I live a couple of miles from the Marin County Civic Center Farmers' Market, which feeds my little blogging hobby. Hell, it feeds me, too.
Formerly employed, I'm now a bum. Happy bum. Tomato ranchin' bum.
But I'm still mad.
