But why does it take so damn long?
Most Americans now think Bush is a failure and they will not vote for candidates associated with him. From Bloomberg:
Fifty-two percent of adults said Bush's administration since 2001 has been a failure, down from 55 percent in October. Fifty- eight percent described his second term as a failure. At the same point in former President Bill Clinton's presidency, 70 percent of those surveyed by Gallup said they considered it a success and 20 percent a failure.Meanwhile, Aaron Brown, a former CNN news anchor says:
In a poll conducted in January of 2002, after Bush was president for one year, 83 percent of those surveyed said his presidency was a success.
In the new poll, conducted Jan. 20-22, fifty-one percent of those surveyed said they would be more likely to vote for congressional candidates who do not support Bush's policies.
Truth no longer matters in the context of politics and, sadly, in the context of cable news.
