CBS Poll Says World Doesn't Respect Bush!


60% In CBS/NY Times Poll Say President Not Respected By Foreign Leaders



Highlights of the CBS poll:

-Six in 10 say the president is not respected by foreign leaders.

-Mr. Bush's overall approval rating remains low — 37%.

-Fifty-seven percent of Americans said the war was going badly, including 27 percent who said it's going very badly.

-53 percent think Iraq will never become a stable democracy, up 10 points from last month.

-41 percent said the U.S. presence in Iraq is making the region less stable, nearly double the number in March.

-69 percent also said the U.S. presence in Iraq is hindering U.S. diplomatic efforts elsewhere in the Mideast.

-If the midterm elections for the House of Representatives were held today, 45 percent of registered voters said they would support the Democratic candidate, while 35 percent would support the Republican.

You do the math: Stay the Course (republicans) OR Take Back America (democrats)?

Choice seems pretty clear to me!

Good for the world! Thing is, if any other English-speaking country had been enfranchised to vote in either the 2000 or 2004 elections, Bush wouldn't have had a snowball's chance in hell. Here in Canada I don't think he's ever had more than 25% support. Problem is, we aren't exposed to your lamentable mainstream media. After being spoonfed by FOX "news" and their mendacious colleagues, 50% of your voters still believe that there were WMDs in Iraq and Saddam had something to do with 9/11. That and voting machines designed to be abuser friendly may make November's outcome less progressive than this poll would indicate. Sad. But true.

Bush has little support from anyone other than his mindless, 32% followers.

A recent Harris Poll confirms that still, sadly, many Americans believe the mendacity of Bush's demagoguery that he continues to spew forth; mainly that there were WMD's in Iraq and Saddam and 9/11 were tied together. (This even after Bush said, "its true, much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong.")

Until people wake up out of their zombie trance and face a painful reality, I am afraid the charade and Wizard of Oz smoke and mirrors show will continue in this country.

"...love my country, love my flag, reality, the world and truth be damned!" (Bush's Pied Piper follower's mantra)
