I think that where Bush is weakest is that he is seen as a political tool. He is completely subservient to congress. Bush’s approval rating is so low not because of Iraq, but because he lets congress, which has long had lower approval ratings, have free reign. Bush hasn’t lived up to his obligation to be a check on the hundreds of politicians who are disapproved of more than him. He has been oblivious to mismanagement of funds in Iraq and Defense Spending. He has poured money into Katrina Relief without concern for results. He has funded deficits with short-term debt, leaving us at the mercy of rising interest rates.
His fear of micro-managing has given the crooks free reign.
Time to take a stand, pussy.
