    Given his mediocre standing in the public opinion polls, I doubt that George W. Bush will run for re-election in 2008.

    The elections over.
    This doesnt matter.

    Besides, Polls like this are hardly considered accurate.

    Remember all those exit polls that had Kerry winning by a landslide shortly after the polls opened? :MandJ:

    ---------------------------------------

    End-of-presidency job approval ratings are used by some pundits to forecast the odds of a President's being re-elected or getting a voter-initiated pink slip.

    A USA Today/Gallup poll (adults, ME3%), taken 9-10 October, showed that 47 percent of American voters approved "of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president" and 49 percent disapproved.

    Compare that with the following chart. His father's approval rating was 56 percent, yet he was a one-term president.

    So it shows me just how much polls really tell us.

    I voted for Kerry, not because he was the best choice, but because Bush's foreign policy flat out SCARES me.

    Bush's foreign policy has America's approval rating with most other nations well below 45%, it could take decades to repair the "game of Risk" damage he has done. The job of president of US is multifaceted, and doing an "adequate" job at one domestic part(although I strongly disagree with many of the budgetary decisions he has made, I will concede), while failing miserably at the international aspect is insufficient. I laugh at those who justify an INVASION of a country thousands of miles away, hiding behind the guise of counterterrorism, when oil production was its only true motivation. Saddam threatened to change the currency for oil barrels to the Euro, and the US retaliated. Just think, they are trying to pass an "oops, we goofed, there are no WMDs" on the public. Is that the kind of information you trust before going to "war" with a country... before INVADING it?

    Given his mediocre standing in the public opinion polls, I doubt that George W. Bush will run for re-election in 2008.
    Thank the good Lord he can't. I would be mortified to see what he would try to press on "Ammurrca" in its so called conservative best interest.

    Those that founded this nation were liberals. Change and challenge of the status quo are not a bad thing. In fact, this country's unwillingness to change from an oil-dependent society can be its downfall. Eventually, we will run out of oil countries to invade. I have nothing against those who value consistency and equilibrium, but advocating a conservative approach to all facets of domestic and foreign policy shows poor adaptability and a haughty sense of superiority. I do not prescribe to a liberal or conservative school of thought, I prescribe to the best decision at the time.

    Enough of my incoherent rant, sorry.

    Now was that really necessary?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    I know, which is why I just questioned your post here and didn't go up another rung on the punishment ladder.

    No harm, no foul.



    I now return you to your regularly scheduled P-thread.

    BTW, I would like to take this moment to again pledge my support to the "Ban all political threads" movement.

    Read this thread, and any political thread of the past 3 months, and you will see why I feel this way.
