Friday December 23, 2005–Fifty percent (50%) of American adults approve of the way George W. Bush is performing his role as President. That’s up six points since the President’s speech on Sunday night.
But the other half disapprove.
But it’s unlikely to make any difference. He’s going to be President until 2007 regardless. Unless the Democrats take back Congress in 2006 and try to impeach him. You all remember the success that the Republicans had with that impeachment thing.
Of course the Democrats have an advantage the Republicans didn’t, control of most of the news media. I mean, having one of the guys that successfully covered up illegal spying by the Clinton White House in charge of political reporting at ABC is pretty impressive, as is having the staff of the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN as their private intelligence network. That was an advantage against the impeachment of Clinton, but that predated the Internet, bloags and Fox News.
But I don’t know that that along with a campaign stressing surrender in Iraq, protection for terrorist accomplices and approval of leaks of classified ops is what is going to do it for them.
