Polls: Bush Receives Good News and Bad News

The good news for Bush according to the latest New York Times/CBS poll is that 65% of Republicans still believe in the Decider-in-Chief, although admittedly that's a drop of 13 points from last fall, but, as we all know by now, Bush has a special way of looking at things.

According to the same poll, Bush's overall approval rating is back down in the twenties at 29%.

I'm not sure why so many Republicans still support Bush. The president has lied to 300 million Americans and made numerous blunders in Iraq and elsewhere, but 65% of Republicans still act as if Bush is an honest man on hard times. I watched Bill Moyers tonight talk about Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay and other crooks in Washington who seem to have had close ties to the president. But that 65% of Republicans is still holding. Billions of dollars have disappeared in Iraq and billions more are unaccounted for after Hurricane Katrina. Nevertheless, that 65% of Republicans is still holding. Go figure.
