More than 80 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, the highest such number since the early 1990s, according to a new survey.
This according to a CBS – New York Times poll released yesterday (Thursday).
No shit? Maybe we have been Yelling Loud Enough! Somebody is listening.
The people of this country ARE really beginning to pay attention and it couldn’t come at a better time!
With national elections only 7 months away, the wheels are falling off the Republican propaganda wagon at a good time for Americans. Yes, even the Republican-Americans that don’t even realize it.
The CBS News-New York Times poll released Thursday showed 81 percent of respondents said they believed “things have pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track.” That was up from 69 percent a year ago, and 35 percent in early 2002.
To borrow from Ricky Ricardo, “Bushie, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.” Yet, I don’t think anyone is listening anymore, Bushie.
No, not even to the “FEAR, BE AFRAID, TERRAHRISTS IN YOUR CORN FLAKES,” or even the old standby of “the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century” distortion of world policies that Bush wants to sell to you and I.
His continuous insult to over a billion Muslims around the world by repeatedly speaking of Islam, fascism and terror in the same breath is only upstaged by his domestic slash and burn policies that are beginning to weigh down so hard on the entire population of the United States that even the most staunch of his backers are now backing away.
The only ideological struggle we are having in this 21st century is neo-con greed vs. the good of the people.
A majority of Democrats and Republicans, men and women, residents of cities and rural areas, college graduates and those who finished only high school say the United States is headed in the wrong direction, according to the survey, which was published on The New York Times’ Web site.
It would certainly seem that the current administrations capacity to say nothing new – nothing that they have not said repeatedly over the past 5 years is coming back to bite them on the butt.
Those bumper sticker slogans DO have an expiration date, n’est pas?
Seventy-eight percent of respondents said the country was worse off than five years ago; just 4 percent said it was doing better.
The newspaper said Americans are more dissatisfied with the country’s direction than at any time since the poll’s inception in the early 1990s. Only 21 percent of respondents said the overall economy was in good condition, the lowest such number since late 1992. Two in three people said they believed the economy was already in recession.
Two of three people are basically calling The President and The Vice President liars when they come on your TV screen and tell you that the economy is NOT IN RESESSION and that the underlying fundimentals of the economy are great, NO REALLY, just GREAT!
Hello, Democratic candidates for office in 2008? You really want to pay attention here. The people don’t trust Bush. Ride that horse all the way to victory, if you aren’t too afraid.
