. . .Last Tuesday, Iraqi election officials certified that their
constitution was approved by a nearly four-to-one margin. This
vote was a crushing blow to terrorists and those who support
them. So how was this news reported?

Some, like Reuters accentuated the negative, as in the headline
"Sunni leaders reject Iraq charter." Others persisted in
familiar claims of voter fraud. Most, however, either gave the
story short shrift or chose to overshadow it with reports of the
2,000 American soldiers killed in Iraq; as if their sacrifice
was not vindicated by the historic election.

On Thursday, the Miers withdrawal thrilled conservatives
everywhere, allowing all the wayward right-wing pundits to
retract their claws while denying liberals their wish for a
divided Republican Party. This temporary in-house skirmish,
while embarrassing for the president, nonetheless proved
beneficial to the movement.

While some begrudgingly recognized what was a banner day for a
relieved GOP, most of the media also decided that it was mainly
a "striking defeat" for the president who was "bowing to
intensifying attacks from right-leaning activists." As I said,
beneficial.

Friday brought the unkindest cut of all to those hoping to bury
Karl Rove. Their white knight, Special Prosecutor Patrick
Fitzgerald, revealed that he had not indicted King Karl. So,
after 22 months of wishing, all they got for Fitzmas was Scooter
Libby's resignation and five indictments for lying about a leak
they failed to hang on anyone. No, Dr. Dean, there is no Santa
Claus.

Worse yet was the public's reaction to the "next Watergate."
According to Monday's Gallup poll: "Despite much speculation
that Libby's indictment will deepen public skepticism of Bush
and spell the political unraveling of his administration, the
initial reaction of Americans appears to downplay the matter's
significance."

Also on Friday came news that the U.S. economy grew by 3.8% in
the third quarter despite hurricanes Katrina and Rita. And on
Monday we learned that consumer spending was up a solid 0.5% and
that incomes grew by 1.7% in September, with gas prices plunging
along due to oil prices dropping to under $60 a barrel. What was
that the Washington Post said about consumer confidence in the
economy taking a plunge?

This week began with President Bush's own Fitzmas present for
liberals. His name is Samuel Alito and he has been nominated to
replace swinging Sandra O'Connor on the Supreme Court. Having
failed miserably on nearly all counts to land a single body blow
to Bush, they are now forced back into their usual defensive
stance: Alito is a radical extremist, against women's rights and
probably eats his own children.

But their main charge will be, as usual, that he is "out of the
mainstream." In liberal media-speak, this means he is exactly
the kind of judge who represents what the majority of Americans
who elected the president want and will likely get. Once again,
bad news for the left is good news for America. And, once again,
Bush makes lemonade out of liberal sour grapes.

Anybody want to make a bet of any size that should one person become
infected with bird flu the following qill happen.
Liberals will be screaming bloody murder because he Bush did not do enough
to prevent the catastrophy.
It will all be Bush's fault because fema the nat health org. did not do
enough to prevent this from happening.
It will be New Orleans all over again and liberals will all be screeching
there looney uninformed disinformation again and again
At this point in time it is that nasty Bssh who is inventing ways to scare
the hell out of Americans. But when the whole thing changes to the real
thing it will be that GD Bush did not do enough.
Liberals are really a group of madmen who would not be happy with a loaf of

http://abcnews.go.com/images/Politics/996a1LibbyIndictment.pdf

"On the Libby indictment itself, 69 percent call it a serious charge and
only 26 percent term it a technical or minor charge. And 55 percent believe
that the Libby indictment indicates "broader problems with ethical
wrongdoing in the Bush administration", rather than that it is an "isolated
incident" (41 percent)."

And amazingly he has only managed to poll almost exactly the same as
Herriet Miers did among the American public. And according to Gallup:

would not want the Senate to confirm him, by 53% to 37%."

Democrats consistently outpoll Republicans in party self identification.
The United States is not a conservative country.

In liberal media-speak, this means he is exactly

Yeah, that must be why Bush is polling the worst of any President in 13
years. In case you didn't notice the majority of Americans don't like
Bush.

Bush, Now
Approve
35%
Disapprove
57%

They don't like the Republican controlled congress.

Americans' overall approval rating of Congress is, according to Gallup's

They don't like the economy.

Moreover, Americans do not think U.S. efforts to bring stability and order
to Iraq are going well. 57 percent think things are going badly for the U.S.

And they don't like the direction that the country is headed.
