Slow news day?

Seriously, why in the hell even write this? It makes no damn sense. I mean I could understand if they titled the article something like, "Bush approval ratings and upcoming elections" or some crap like that. I'm sure that he doesn't care that his rating is in the toilet, I mean its not like he is going to be re-elected.

I dunno...seems to me that a person would want to know whether or not they are doing the job they're getting paid to do well or not. Every year I get appraised by a group of my peers and my boss and my salary etc is adjusted accordingly. And I'm just a desktop publisher. That's all these polls do...advise politicians about how the people who have hired them feel on the job they're doing...or not doing as the case may be.

Nah, don't buy it. I, for one, couldn't care less what the opinion of people were about me and my job performance when they almost no clue to the real pressures and the day to day aspect of it.

I think a person's natural reaction to being judged publically is to tell that person to fuck off. Granted he's the president...President Bartlett would CARE! /cough

I once heard The West Wing spoken of as "political porn for liberals"

I would prefer to say "political porn for idealists" as even if I don't agree with the show all the time I like the characters and their sincerity.

Bush's speech writer's aren't bad...he just isn't great at delivering them.
