I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down

Newsweek: Bush approval 38%, 57% have lost confidence in U.S. to deal with disaster (emphasis mine):
New York-President George W. Bush's approval ratings have fallen across the board in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and a seemingly flawed government response to the disaster, according to the latest Newsweek Poll. Bush's job-approval rating dropped to 38 percent, the lowest ever in the Newsweek Poll. Sixty-six percent of those polled say they are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time; just 28 percent are satisfied, another record low in the poll.

A 52-percent majority of Americans say they do not trust President Bush to make the right decisions during a domestic crisis, 45 percent do. The same number-52 percent-do not trust him to make the right decisions during an international crisis, again, 45 percent do. In addition, 57 percent of Americans say the slow response in New Orleans has caused them to lose confidence in the government to deal with another major natural disaster, 41 percent say it has not; 47 percent say it has made them lose confidence in government to prevent another 9/11-type attack; half (50%) say it has not, the poll shows.
Stay the course! Despite the fact that even before the election, there was a majority, that has now grown to nearly 2/3 of Americans, that feel that we are headed in the wrong direction... Dear Leader sez "stay the course". I for one hope that the trend that his poll numbers have been taking since he stole the election continues to "stay the course".

Still, there seem to be 7% that are fence-sitters who for some as yet unfathomable reason, despite all the evidence that bespeaks the contrary, think that Preznit Dipshit will make the right decisions in a crisis.

What are these people smoking? I'm not sure that Karl Rove believes he is capable of deciding what flavor ice cream he wants with his cake. The man is a clueless half-wit. When left to his own devices, he will do and/or say exactly the wrong thing.

I look forward to sitting on the porch. Out of New Orleans is going to come that great city again."
