So Bush's approval ratings are at an all time low, with only about a third of the country reporting that they are satisfied with the way that he's handling his job. Even Fox News ran a report on Friday which admitted that Bush's approval rating had sunk to around 33 percent, a record low for the president (and you can bet that they pretty much choked on that information, given the fact that Fox News has typically been nothing but a PR machine for the Bush administration). Less than half of the country now reports that they find the president to be trustworthy or a strong and decisive leader. Analysts attribute much of the dissatisfaction to the ongoing war and rising gas prices. Steanso is willing to bet that the release of the latest Bin Laden tape isn't helping matters either.
Anyway, let's hope that the Democrats can take advantage of these sagging numbers and win some congressional seats in November.
Speaking of the Fox News PR machine, Fox anchor Tony Snow is apparently being considered for the job of White House press secretary. Snow was apparently a speech writer for Bush's father back in 1991. Why don't they just get the whole thing over with and move Fox News into the West Wing? They're already a propaganda machine (not only was there now follow up on that anomolous article about Bush's low approval ratings, but the article itslef was hard to find within Fox's archived database, even though the article was run as recently as last Friday). I never understood how Fox News could be taken seriously as an objective news source, anyway. I mean, c'mon. Geraldo Rivera and Bill O'Reilly as credible news sources?

Steanso doesn't have much to report on the home front. Last night he just watched 24 and did some reading. Hope everyone is having a good day.

I retrospect, this has been a pretty lame post, but Steanso is feeling kind of weird today. If Crackbass got me sick he's getting a beatdown.

If I got you sick, Steanso, you will be in no shape to deliver any beat downs
