its ok he's a Lame Duck!!!
For those who don’t know, a lame duck president is a second term president nearing the end of his term who has a low approval rating. A lame duck is basically useless for this fact, if you are a senator or a congressman/woman who needs to be reelected in 2006 why would you support Whitehouse policies that the American people don’t approve of for a president that’s not running again. So they become lame and get nothing done in the final years of their presidency. It’s ok though, lots of presidents have become lame ducks. Your party will turn on you if you can’t help them get reelected that are just how DC is. But the questions are Bush a lame duck?
Yesterday Bush received his lowest approval rating ever 37% down from 87% in 2001 he sure seems to be lagging. Bush also received his all-time worst marks in three other categories in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. The categories were terrorism, Bush's trustworthiness and whether the Iraq war was worthwhile.
Terrorism~ 49 percent said they disapprove.
Trustworthiness~ For the first time, more than half of the public thinks Bush is not honest and trustworthy -- 52 percent to 46 percent.
Iraq~ 60 percent said it was not worth going to war in Iraq
those numbers a pretty bad, Bush's lowest approval ratings came on two issues that divide his own Republican Party. On federal spending, 71 percent disapproved of his performance. Sixty-one percent of respondents disapproved of Bush's handling of the economy. and only 26% of people agree with bush's immigration policies.
the nation is so split that bush only has 7% of democratic that support him. but the way I see it the democrats are doing there best to capitalize on these latest events. they know that the American people won’t really support them in the long run for the presidency so they are just letting the republicans dig their own grave. By dividing the party bush has weakened the republican position.
