How Do Your Rate the President?
According to FNC, President Bush's approval ratings are at 30%. It reminds one of Nixon's nadir during the throes of Watergate. President Bush has some great ideas but he must learn that one can't rule unless he/she has the heart and/or confidence of the American public. He has stood strong on terrorism, defense, and judicial philosophy; he took good initial steps on tax, oil, and regulations policy; and he has been a friend to democracy and freedom in the Middle East. However, he and his party in D.C. seem to be impotent in taking on the Democrats and the media on taxes, energy, and "the vision thing" (as his father once said) during his second term. Say what you will about Clinton but he knew how to rally an American plurality to his side regardless of the rightness of his position. Maybe, Tony Snow will help get him on message and to do so in a manner that will resonate with the public. I give him a B+ in his first term and a C+ in his second term.
