Bush in freefall
Bush approval rating hits new low
Only four presidents have scored a lower approval rating in a Gallup survey than Bush’s current 31% number.

WASHINGTON – President Bush’s approval rating has slumped to 31% in a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, the lowest of his presidency and a warning sign for Republicans in the November elections.
The survey of 1,013 adults, taken Friday through Sunday, shows Bush’s standing down by 3 percentage points in a single week. His disapproval rating also reached a record: 65%. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.
3 points in a week. A week that saw the head of the CIA flee (from hookers), a pending Rove indictment, and numerous attacks on American troops in Iraq. We still have a way to go before its all over- three years of nonsense is a lot of nonsense.
But here is the TTP pledge. The day he stumbles into the 20% range, I’m buying dinner for all who show up at Maddy’s. It’s party time!
