Can't wait for the meltdown....
Will Chimpy burst into a fit of wild screeching, his chimpy-mouth wide open, baring his teeth and shaking his slack fists, knuckles outward?
Or will it be more of a Rev. Jim Bakker-fetal-position-blubbering thing?

The more he talks, the lower the polls. I have no doubt he will go way below Nixon. I would love to see single digits.

Anybody know what Nixon's lowest poll rating was?
Hey, let's have a Bush poll limbo party - how LOW can he GO???
Maybe we should start a betting pool. I'll take 29% by December 31 - anybody?

Cheney is now being brought out to blow smoke at the critics. But why would they bring out someone with even LOWER numbers?
I love it ! Hope they keep opening their lying mouths and inserting feet.

The administration seems to be in a "Hail Mary" mode, to use a football metaphor. Instead of trying to gradually regain the trust (?) of the American people through reasoned debate, they're attacking by questioning the motives of their critics, in effect throwing a 50-yard pass into triple coverage, hoping for a miracle.
Amazing, really. Cheney is hurting Bush, big time.
Yet he can't shut up. His chief of staff is under indictment for lying and obstructing justice, and there he is, blaming the messengers who tell the American people it's all a big lie. Really amazing.

It's ironic that Cheney states that critics of the war are opportunists! Follow the money - soldiers dying, sky rocketing national debt, profit for Halliburton and other mega corps. Let's see just who is the opportunist!! Maybe people are beginning to awaken from the stupor!

Randi Rhodes was talking tonight about a Washington Times story (the Sun Myung Moon paper, but still...)
that says the president is pissed at his dad, who has become Clinton's new best friend, pissed at Cheney & Rove, and has been shunning all his yes-men lately, preferring trusted 'ladyfriends' only: Condi, Karen & Harriet. Is Georgie finally losing it?

I received an excellent form letter from Dr. Dean regarding the Dems plan to win Congressional seats in 2006. I believe that the DNC has an excellent plan that will unfold over the months leading to the mid-terms. Everyone knows that the Dems are the only immediate threat to the neocon power grab. Vote Green or some other progressive party in your local elections but save your national vote for Dems. If you can contribute to the DNC, please do. My check is in the mail but the funding gap is huge. The healing will start only after checks and balances are restored

This is a product of the Bushit administration: Sensation Journalism - talk about a topic but don't give you the whole story so you cannot draw a conclusion or he said she said news which gives the listener/reader a mindfck because you cannot tell what's most important to make an informed conclusion on the facts presented. I deeply appologize for not sticking to the issue of the President's popularity. The truth doesn't mean anything to the Bush administration and this sends out the worst of many bushit messeges. Word up is the brown bear (which is on the flag of CA but hunted to extinction in 1922) is doing so well in Yellowstone Park it can be taken off the endangered species list. Well Mr. President last year 51 bears died and this year 35 were killed by unnatural causes in the lower 48 states. The Yellowstone bears are suffering from inbreeding (like yourself but not by choice) and the males are trying to leave the Yellowstone area. Expert have noticed peculiar behavior changes supporting this fact as well. "The Yellowstone population can be connected by a wild lands corridor to one of the remaining 8 populations in the lower 48 states if we act now," says Louisa Willcox Wild Bears Project Director at the NRDC. Another truth is that brown bear has a hard time reproducing compared to other species. The Bush administration reversed a law protecting the 58 million acres of wildlands that were put aside for future generations and now allows offroad vehicles in these public wildlands which is destroying wild animals' habitats. As I once spoke before on this site, the Indians know the Grizzly Bear as the most powerful animal in the spiritual kingdom know for it's healing ability. To remove them from endangered species protection and to start hunting the brown bears like they do in Cananda is to murder the last of this great specie outside Alaska. The government is asking your opinion for the next 90 days. Expert opinion by naturalists, biologist, or wild animal enthusiasts don't count. This is so in the end when the bulldozers come and they start cutting down the forests that were to be preserved for future generation, these people who will get wealthy when more roads and houses are built instead of saving the brown bomber can say,"this is what U(Americans) wanted." Impeach and jail lying murderers.

Mugzi #11 - You've found the Double Super Secret Decoder Ring for the Bush Admin!
It's simple, really.
What ever Bush or Cheney says is their position or philosiphy, what they do and achieve is the opposite.
If they're describing terrorists, the words could be applied to them.
If Bush says he wants a strong dollar, his policies make a weak dollar.
If Bush "wants to get to the bottom" of the leak investigation, he doesn't.
If Bush says Harriet is the most qualified for the SCOTUS, she's the LEAST qualified.
If Bush says "Brownie, yer doin' a heck of a job," Brownie is actually killing Americans with his incompetance.
You can pretty much take anything Bush says, and it means the opposite.

34%. Wow. That's gotta hurt.
I called my Repub representative soooo many times in May, June and July about the Downing Street Memo, and I TOLD them, Bush is going to have one hell of a bad summer. Why? Because there's indisputable documentary proof that he's a lying piece of shit war criminal. I TOLD them, he's going to drop, and NEVER bounce. EVER again. I called my Rep's office sooo many times, I know I left an impression. They could recognize my voice, I'm sure.
I TOLD them, that the information in the public that damns Bush is so strong, it doesn't matter if the MSM covers it. People will be compelled to discredit the President until he is shunned out of office, maybe even impeached and convicted. I think I should call again and tell them "I TOLD you so".
Now, My Representative, you work for me. Get off your fucking ass and represent the 100% who were lied into Iraq.
And when you cry "uncle," and acknowledge that Bush is a complete failure and a lying war criminal, we're still going to vote you out of office in overwhelming numbers, because you were a piece of shit, protecting the War Crimes President.
Fuck my Republican Representative (voted out in 2006)
Fuck President Bush (Impeached and Convicted in 2007)

His rating is much less than 10% if you factor in the rest of the world, I would think. That is a funny place to be for the one and only "Super Power".
The neoCons and neoConvicts that ruined the Bush presidency are legends in their own mind, criminals in their own time.
Two stock tips: buy beer stock, and book stock.
Books will be written for years and the depths of the scandals and what is going on behind the scenes will rock the boat for a decade.

"Two stock tips: buy beer stock, and book stock."
Yo, Dreddster....if book stocks go up with tell-all books about Chimpy the Sock Monkey's criminal reign of 'turrur', does that mean 'The Education Preznit' actually DID inspire people to read more??
But what's with the beer?
When he starts drinking heavy again all the ditto heads are going to follow. Beer companies will profit.
I drink beer for different reasons ... because it is cold and wet and helps relaxation, and has water in it
Hey, if we don't want this guy finding out "what is in YOUR wallet", lets fight the Patriot Act shenanigans going on right now (link here).

Kinda figured the prediction on beer futures had to do with Chimpy's 'practicing his love' with alcoholic beverages, I've always pegged him as a LOT more serious about his buzz than settling for beer....
I realize that beer afficianado types might take offense at the suggestion that by drinking beer, one is 'settling' - but I mean it in the sense that taste is NOT a factor in much of anything our Idiot King does - he wants to get wasted, high, stoned, buzzed, totalled, blitzed, bombed, hosed, shit-faced, poo-poo-ed, polluted, toasted and hammered ASAP - before anything from the Reality-Based Community penetrates his thick skull.
Maybe we should have Chimpy's noggin run thru an MRI to examine his incredible skull density and invent some new armor-plating for the troops!!

Wow is this the moron who said he would bring "honesty and integrity" back to the White House?
Or was all encompassing moral values???
Which values were those? As far as him and most of congress, I can only say prison values.

O my God what is America thinking. Why don't we just get rid of the people in the White House now and put all of you "Know it alls" in there and let you run the country..........Jeesh, get a job, pay taxes and die for christ's sake
You are tired of america?
In this land we are the government and those in the white house are there because they said they would represent what we want.
Your attitude is as renegade as the white house is unpopular.
Guess what tho, the people are still popular ...

You a wanna be street judge?
Stop telling us what you would do about America and just deal with the fact that all politicians are liars and that's never gonna change, even if you were to get elected......you would be the same.
Guess what though, the people's vote will always put the wrong one in and then whine about how they were lied to and take it out on the other party......
