"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Hometown Hero?

One might think, but it's not looking that way lately. It appears as though the tide is turning even in George's home town. Crawford's local paper, The Lone Star Iconoclast's online edition contains two less than flattering articles on the President and his administration. One covers the Downing Street Minutes...
Rep. John Conyers, Jr., Ranking Member of House Judiciary Committee, and other Democratic members will hold on Thursday, June 16, a Democratic hearing to hear testimony concerning the Downing Street Minutes and the efforts to cook the books on pre-war intelligence.

On May 1, a Sunday London Times article disclosed the details of a classified memo, also known as the Downing Street Minutes, recounting the minutes of a July 2002 meeting of Prime Minister Tony Blair that describes an American President already committed to going to war in the summer of 2002, despite contrary assertions to the public and the Congress. The minutes also describe apparent efforts by the Administration to manipulate intelligence data to justify the war.
and the other highlights the plummeting ratings...
People in America are not pleased with their leadership at the White House or in Congress, according to a recent poll conducted by the Associated Press by Ipsos. According to the poll, Bush's approval rating is at 43 percent, with Congress at 31 percent, the lowest levels yet for the survey that started in December 2003. The AP poll also showed that only about a third of adults (35 percent) thought the country was heading in the right direction, with 41 percent saying they supported Bush's handling of the war in Iraq, the lowest ranking yet. Bush's handling of domestic issues also ranked low, in the high 30s and low 40s, according to the poll which was taken June 6-8.
Looks like even the people of Crawford, Texas our beginning to distance themselves from the unpopular leader.
