Well, it seems as though Bush's poll numbers are in a free fall (still).

According to the most recent poll, his approval rating is 34%. His disaproval rating is 60%. I think that number is telling. Even at the height of the Lewinsky scandal, Clinton's approval rating was in the mid-sixties.

67% of those polled thought Bush didn't have a clear plan on Iraq.

I'm thinking more like 67% KNOW Bush doesn't have a clear plan on Iraq. The other third of the nation is still wearing their emerald glasses handed to them by the wizard.

If Bush wants to get his poll numbers back, renewable energy isn't enough. He needs to stop coming out and saying Iraq was an awesome idea and things aren't going wrong. He needs to come out and say things aren't working and this is what I'm doing to fix it. He doesn't even need to change what he's doing in Iraq for that to work.

He also needs to take some blame for the warrantless eavesdropping. He needs to admi it was against the law, it was anti-American and he'll never do it again. He could start that speech talking about his dog Barney...

As far as winning on the economy issue, I can't help him there. He's going to shoot himself in the foot to fix it and he won't do that. He'd need to repeal his tax cuts. Yeah it would piss his base off for a minute, before they realize that it's fiscally conservative to do so at Bush's rate of spending.

(I couldn't get an image to work, feel free to add one if you can figure it out, Steve)
