Newsweek Poll Has Bush at 36 Percent

Newsweek released another poll over the weekend and, like all recent surveys before it, we see that George W. Bush is about as popular as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi at a Pentagon mixer.

According to the poll, taken November 10 and 11, a paltry 36 percent of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing as president, while 68 percent are dissatisfied with the direction of the country. And, despite Bush's speech on Friday – in which he tried to paint opponents of the Iraq war as being an out-of-touch minority – a whopping 65 percent disapprove of the president’s handling of Iraq.

Aside to Newsweek: Bush is not "... a leader who rode comfortably to reelection just a year ago." It was an incredibly close election that came down to one state. And were it not for the Republican-funded Swift Boat Liars and a wholly inadequate response to those cretins by the Kerry campaign, Bush would be back in Crawford clearing brush instead of continuing to ruin our country.
