"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN - New poll: A majority doesn't approve of his handling of Iraq

CNN -- President Bush's approval ratings do not appear to have changed significantly, despite a number of recent speeches he's given to shore up public support for the war in Iraq and its historic elections on Thursday.


Woops!! Yet another one of those polls of 1,003 adults by CNN/USA Today/Gallup. Not sure why I bother reading/reviewing them; it must be some self loathing thing.

Although the article acknowledges the poll was taken before the Presidents address Sunday night (12/18), in the second paragraph; it would appear to make more sense to include Sunday, no?

As I’ve said before, to me an article based on a poll of all things is pretty weak, but it really lacks if you don’t care to include “post address” results, wouldn’t you agree?

Unless of course that article might be harder to twist; honestly though, twisting is a hurdle CNN and the others have no difficulties mastering.
