The sheeple via Newsweek: Bush sucks


(AFP/Jim Watson)

36%.

The rest of the numbers are, as Marcus Mabry says in the article, “astounding.”

* 68% of Americans are dissatisfied with the direction of the country-the highest in Bush’s presidency.
* 42% of all Americans now believe the Chimp is not “honest and ethical.”
* Only 29% believe that Vice President Dick Cheney is honest, and, incredibly even 26 percent of Republicans believe Darth’s a f*cking pathological liar.
* 52% of Americans believe Cheney “deliberately misused or manipulated pre-war intelligence about Iraq’s nuclear capabilities in order to build support for war,”
— and that goes for 22 percent of Republicans and 54 percent of independents.

And this paragraph has to hurt — can I twist the knife more, please?

Bush’s new approval low of 36 percent in the NEWSWEEK poll equals the low point of Bill Clinton’s presidency in May 1993, when the former president hit 36 percent. The 41st president, George H.W. Bush, hit his lowest ratings late in 1992 before he was defeated by Clinton. A Gallup poll in July 1992 recorded a 32 percent approval rate for the first President Bush. But other presidents have fared worse. Jimmy Carter scored 28-29 percent in June and July 1979, according to Gallup. President Richard Nixon’s Gallup number dropped to 24 percent in August 1974.
