Santa Ana Potholes More Popular Than Bush
The new Reuters/Zogby poll shows that 76 percent of the country would probably have George W. Bush managing a date shake shop on PCH than serving as president. Only Richard M. Nixon attracted worse approval ratings and he ordered burglaries from the White House. Pollster John Zogby, a Republican, said, “[People] are giving up on this government.” Who is laughing most? Sen. Hillary Clinton. Her approval rating jumped an impressive 11 percent to 46 percent in the last month. A slight majority believe that former Vice President Al Gore, fresh from a Nobel Peace Prize win, shouldn’t enter the race. But don’t get cocky, Democrats. According to Reuters, the poll shows “a paltry 11 percent gave Congress a positive grade.” Perhaps the public is finally tired of meaningless lip service on critical issues. -- R.
