Bush approval at record low

The Washington Post reports that, as Bush prepares to deliver the State of the Union, he is as unpopular as he has ever been.

Bush's overall approval rating in the new poll is 33 percent, matching the lowest it has been in Post-ABC polls since he took office in 2001. Sixty-five percent say they disapprove. Equally telling is the finding that 51 percent of Americans now strongly disapprove of his performance in office, the worst rating of his presidency. Just 17 percent strongly approve of the way he is handling his job.
Now, you might be asking yourself, "Self, how on earth could 33 percent of Americans still approve of the job Bush is doing? What's wrong with them?"

You might ask yourself further, "Self, who on earth are the 17 percent of people who strongly approve of the job Bush is doing? What could such people be thinking?"

Here, dear friend, is the answer to those questions.

i think that they are called 'the macaca mob'- but only by their close friends :) it saddens me to think that there are people this ignorant and stupid in america. with all that we have and all of the education and whatnot- we still have this large a number of racists, bigots and all around dumb asses- it is mind boggling.
