    Sure it ain't much but it strikes me as a bit odd with all the negative PR and media shown by the left this week leading up to the final showdown that his approval rating would jump 4 points. Actually the last reported poll on this forum by a liberal showed Bush at 28% so that would be a net increase of 15% points just for todays showdown.

    How is that for extrapolation?

    Dude ..I am surprised. How can you ignore the fact that there havent been terror attacks on AMerican soil due to Pres. Bush after 9/11? No other U.S President could have tackled terrorism the way Pres. Bush has.

    Are we really "less safe?"

    I mean, do you feel threatened? Unsafe?

    I have never once felt scared or threatened. I have never hesitated to get on a plane, travel, go to a mall, leave my house. I have felt as safe since 9/11 as I did before 9/11. I suppose this could be a product of where I live, a medium sized community about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles, not exactly a hotbed of terrorist activity. But then again, I have not once hesitated to go to L.A.. Terrorism is not a factor in any of my decisions, in fact, I can't remember the last time I gave it any thought outside of the evening news reports.

    I will NEVER feel safe as long as Bush is in office- he doesn't know what the hell he's doing and won't listen to anyone. The longer we stay in Iraq, the stronger Al-qaida gets. Another major attack is inevitable- not if but when.

    While I understand your feelings about Bush, I'm not sure our presence in Iraq is the determining factor in whether or not the U.S. gets hit again. He is not the reason the U.S. is a target. They would want to attack the U.S. if all of our troops were home patrolling our borders and Shirley Temple Black was president. I always figured another attack here was a foregone conclusion, it's to be expected. Iraq, in my opinion, is a non factor in the equation. I'm also of the opinion that the assets needed to carry out the next attack(s) are already in the U.S. or, at the very least, on the continent. It's a wonder there haven't been coordinated attack on malls across the nation.
