Bill Sammon at The Examiner takes a glass-half-full approach:
Although President Bush is suffering through the lowest job approval ratings of his presidency, most of his predecessors had ratings that were just as low or even lower.
Eight of the 10 presidents who preceded Bush had ratings at least as low as 37 percent - the current president’s nadir, as measured by Gallup. Some were dramatically lower.
Harry Truman once had a job approval rating of just 23 percent, the lowest ever recorded since Gallup began taking such polls in 1938. Ronald Reagan bottomed out at 35 percent.
“All presidents but two have been in the 30 percent range since Gallup began measuring in World War II,” Gallup Editor in Chief Frank Newport told The Examiner. “The two that never got below 40 are JFK and Eisenhower.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
