President Bush hasn’t even be “coronated” yet and polls indicate that the his approval rating has sunk to 49%. Where are the 51% that voted for him?
Secondly, the war in Iraq has now received a 56% disapproval rating, and yet 51% of the population voted for Bush. Interesting.
The exit polls on election day showed that one of the candidates (in the words of a downtrodden-looking FOX correspondent) was winning by “a landslide." Later reports show a glowing John Kerry. Then the exits polls on election night showed Kerry as winning in the key battleground state of Ohio. I say "key" because Republicans and Democrats alike dismissed Florida (a given that Jeb wouldn’t allow his home state to go to Kerry). No way--Jeb made sure those numbers were much higher this time. Practice makes perfect.
So now let’s add this up.
No way! I don’t hate Bush. I hate the media for not saying that the Emperor has no Clothes.
This guy and his band or brothers are whacked! The glue is some ill-conceived plan to take over the Middle East and at the same time build up the Military/ Industrial Complex. Meanwhile, the drug companies dominate the airwaves and 44% of the public is medicated. No wonder they don’t know what the hell is going on.
I am sober and angry! I wish I could take a happy pill but somebody has to be vigilant. This is America, not Nazi Germany! Do your job.
