    On another thread respondents are complaining about how opinion polls on Bush's approval rating are skewed depending upon how the question is phrased. Well this is as simple as it gets.

    What he is doing is correct. There are serious problems in the committment in numbers and message. Here and in Iraq.

    So, 'good job in Iran?' My answer was it could be much better.

    This simple answer cannot define my feelings accurately.

    Why do I think he is doing a poor job?

    1. He leaves our borders open to insurgency.
    2. He does not communicate his plans well and because of that allows the political opposition to define his plan for him. He needs to realize the power of the Presidency to control the media's message about his plans.

    Do I think he is doing the right thing?

    Yes, I do. Not for the reasons he gave, but over the long term it will be the right thing.

    Not perfect, but then who is? I'm not happy about his butt-kissing of Vicente Fox, but the bottom line is I believe he is doing a much better job than dopey Kerry would have done.

    And it's positively wonderful to have decency and integrity back in the White House, after eight years of Clinton's sleaze.

    All in all, I think President Bush is doing a good job. Like anybody, there are some things I'm not thrilled with. His immigration policy, and the fact that I am taking more and more of a Libertarian view when it comes to education puts me farther away from him on that issue as well.

    Still, there are things domestically and internationally that needed to be done, and rather than wash his hands of them in favor of popularity polls, he's doing what he can to get them done. All with 99% of Democrats and liberals sitting on pins and needles, waiting to see what he says so they can take the opposite stance.

    I think Pres. Bush has grossly mismanaged the Iraq war, he has taken our country from budget surpluses under Clinton to record Deficits, he's done nothing to help reduce our trade deficit, gas is $2.79 a gallon but we're subsidizing big oil, the enivorment is being trashed for profit by big oil, big mining, and big logging interests, shall I go on?

    Those are some of the reasons his supporters love him so much. I guess perspective is everything.

    Since your goal is communism pure and simple, I'll take The Bush agenda any day.
