edgar, it wasn't easy for many Americans to admit that the President lied us into war. Yet 57% now say Bushie deliberately lied us into war. Serious business there. Those numbers will only grow what with all the revelations, investigations and indictments.

There are several important points to be made.

First of all, George W, Bush is not running for president in 2008, indeed, may not run for president in 2008 because of a constitutional amendment-\


Secondly, The most important thing that any president can do during his terms of office is to appoint judges to the various courts which will, in his opinion, safeguard the operation of the Constituion as outlined by our founding fathers.

Bush has done that and will see the appointment of a second Judge, Alito, to follow the first appointment-Roberts.

Indeed, it was John Kerry himself who said that the voters should select him because of the enormous importance of the President's power to select judges who will probably sit on the bench for twenty five or thirty years.

and, finally,those on the left who think that President Bush's temporary problems will translate into victories for the left wing in November 2006 show a real ignorance of the situation.

Because of the restructuring of Districts by both the Democratic and Republican Parties after the 2000 census, the Districts have been so gerrymandered that there are no more than 30( thirty) seats out of 435 that are competetive in the November 2006 off year elections.

There are various groups herded into two camps. The herding is being undone and there may be changes.

Actually, it is mortkat who shows an ignornace of politics. It is not a given that Republicans will vote for Republican congressional candidates.

When an almost unknown candidate can lead in the polls against a longtime incumbent Senator in Ohio, anything is possible.

I am actually enjoying the fact that the left-wing sponsored polls are coming out now to show George in bad place. This can only be good news for the Republicans in the long run. It is far too early for this sort of a dip in popularity, belief and the such to be of any real threat to the Republicans. There is a year to go before the infamous midterm elections and even if the Democrats gain ground it will not help in the long view picture. With some 3 years to go until the next Presidential election the Republicans have plenty of time to spin all of this in their direction.

Yes, I for one am very glad that the Phil Donahue sponsored Polls came out when they did.

Ah, yes, Phil Donahue--the evil mastermind behind the American Left Wing. Sturgis knows too much, but he's made a fatal mistake in revealing this openly. Phil Donahue's agents are probably already heading in his direction.

yeh Sturgie, tell your logic to Rick Santorum of Pa. Rick isnt taking any of Bush's calls. Hes distancing himself from Bush so he doesnt lose too badly to Casey for the Senate seat next year.

what me worry?

Sturgis wow. When did an NBC/WSJ poll become a left-wing sponsered poll? Things must be changing faster than I realized.

NBC/WSJ poll could never become a left wing sponsered poll. Nothing could ever become a left wing sponsered poll. Nothing could even ever be sponsered.
