The number who think his "confidence is really arrogance" has gone up to 56 percent.

How can anyone say that he represents our country when the majority (as indicated in these numbers) of the country thinks he's a lying weasel?

Yeah look at those number? how did this guy win? It was timing, if the election was now he would lose.

More and more I am thinking it was Kerry's loss rather than Bush's win. And I think oddly Kerry's Vietnam history may have done him in,I mean to at least put him down below Bush in a very close election.

It's about time people started to figure out that we have a total loser running our country.

All of the mean and terrible words and phrases in the English language cannot express how I feel about our president.

I didn't vote for Bush either time, but have tried (not very successfully) to be openminded during his administrations. He's not on my list of favorite people right now. Locally, we're grieving the loss of five Marines in Iraq. As a Army veteran who was on active duty during the Gulf War, I know that's the reality of military service, but I can't help thinking about the tragedy of these young lives lost and the families these guys left behind, including a newborn baby whose father never got to hold him. I know it's probably not rational, but I can't help holding our president partly responsible for this.

Oh gosh I heard about the loss in Ohio, I am so sorry.

Marge, I think you're right.

You know, I think Bush has doen a lot of wrong for this country. Am I misguided for thinking that he believes he's doing the right thing? I disagree vehemently with him about the war. I hate what he's doing to our troops. If my brother or loved one was there I would be heartbroken. Still, I can't HATE the man. I just want him out of office.

With that said, I'm confident that I'm not going to love whoever takes his place. I think I'm numb about the presidency. I want to be 100% behind the leader of this country, but I don't see it ever happening with our 2 party system. Oh well, thats already been discussed anyways.

I think I'm depressing myself.

I know what you mean about complacent,numb feelings. I am that way too, not proud of my country etc.

Yeah I think the Vietnam thing got Kerry. I didn't see that coming but that war is not over in any way shape or form to many people. I seriously think Howard Dean *might* have done better.

I think the poll can out at a pretty good time considering all the losses in Iraq just this week. " W " just never struck me as an articulate type of person from the very beginning. I'm a "blue" sort of person; my hubby is a "red". This leads to many interesting discussions in our house at times!!

I think he truly believes in what he is doing. But I don't feel he and his administration can think things through. He leads us into stuff but doesn't know how to lead us out of it. He is fanatical about loyalty but sometimes one needs disagreement to see a situation from a different perspective. His isolation from anyone who disagrees with him (witness his encounters with the public which are completely filtered) scares me more than his policies.

Well put, this is what concerns me in general, the lack of discourse. He wants to get rid of checks and balances but that is one of the greatest things the founding fathers started.

And congress is just as bad. I have heard of multiple laws being passed where "does not fall under judicial review". Over the centuries, government has not proven it could be trusted and the Bush admin seems to have this "just trust us - we know what's good for you". There must be oversight. My favorite government organization is the GAO just for that reason.
