Oh James, you’re just paranoid

Poor Marks For Bush, Congress

NEW YORK, April 18, 2005

(CBS) President Bush doesn’t fare very well in the latest CBS News poll with an approval rating of just 44 percent and still limp support for his proposed Social Security overhaul.

But at least he’s doing better than Congress, which earns a thumbs-up from only 35 percent of Americans – nearly as low a rating as it received last month immediately after lawmakers’ unpopular intervention in the Terri Schiavo case. </i>

Why is this worrisome? Because historically, Bush and crew always seem to find a new terror to announce when his numbers tank. Transparent? Yes. Dangerous? You betcha.
