Growing public pessimism

The Associated Press published a poll they did the shows that the number of Americans who disapprove of the performance of President Bush and Congress is increasing.

Generally speaking, would you say things in this country are heading in the right direction, or are they off on the wrong track?

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job?

Do you approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president?

If the election for Congress were held today, would you want to see the Republicans or Democrats win control of the Congress?

Do you approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling gas prices?

    Bush succeeds and fails in record fashion.
    The problem is that the successes are only for his rich friends and corporations, while the failures are landing on the shoulders of anyone who isn’t filthy rich but mostly on the most vulnerable of society.

    Bush’s successes:
    1) Unbidded contracts to Halliburton and boosting the industrial military complex.
    2) Biggest Tax Cut in history for the wealthy
    3) Record profits for oil companies
    4) Record tax breaks for oil companies

    While the people suffer:
    1) Biggest deficit in history – our country has been SOLD to China and Saudi Arabia.
    2) Record oil prices
    3) Record reduction in funding science and math programs
    4) Biggest intelligence/security failure in american history – 9/11, Iraq
    5) Roll back of EPA standards to “save” our economy.
    6) FEMA and Hurricane Katrina reconstruction
    7) Illegal wire-tapping

    I hope this poll reflects that people finally realize that the Bush administration is only concerned in making his rich friends wealthier at the expense of the citizens of the country.

    I hope this will all be realized in the fall elections!

    I hate polls. But the results of this one are encouraging. And I think that the hope that was created by this poll is one of the reasons I hate polls. But OCPSYCHE is right, all of the successes have been for rich people, and the failures have landed on poor people.
