Little Gary is worried
Going down with the ship, friend?
President George W. Bush’s approval ratings are at an all-time low, even among Republicans — and a pro-family leader isn’t sure that shake-ups on the White House staff will help matters. The president’s approval ratings have sunk to 33 percent — his lowest ratings ever — and even the ratings of GOP supporters have dipped below 70 percent.
A series of changes are taking place among the White House staff — but Gary Bauer of American Values is not sure that will help. “I think it’s too early to tell whether we’re just rearranging chairs on the deck of the Titanic or not,” he offers. Bauer says it is good to move folks around at times, “but I think at the end of the day it’s the policy,” he says. Between now and November, he says, the White House needs to get “serious about renewing the tax cuts, getting the budget deficit under control, getting the marriage amendment passed, and doing something serious about border control.” Skyrocketing gas prices, adds Bauer, are another issue President Bush must address.
