A Snapshot of the Bush Mandate

According to a Washington Post poll-

  • 58% disapprove of his Iraq policies
  • 52% disapprove of the way he has handled the economy
  • 51% disapprove of the way he has handled health care
  • 58% disapprove of the way W has handled the budget deficit
  • 53% do not think Bush will make progress on Social Security
  • 65% do not think Bush will make progress on the environment
  • 62% do not think that W will make progress on the deficit
  • 56% do not believe that GWB "understands the problems of people like you"
  • 55% do not think that the war in Iraq was worth fighting
  • 57% believe that companies should face the possibility of big penalties in lawsuits

Finally, 55% think that Bush will do a better job in his second term. That's a backhanded compliment- how could he possibily do worse.

+100 BRILLIANT!

That last line was classic, and probably very true...when you compare Bush to, well, Bush, you can only go up from rock bottom...

Well, one hopes. There's always Iran and Social Security.
