Good Overview on Global Warming

from the "Disgruntled Chemist".

Relevant here, as:
1) TWPE refuses to touch this subject
2) the real president, Al Gore, would likely have made this a top issue

Bad to Worse

Figures Bush would replace the disgraced Porter Goss with what appears to be the worst possible choice: NSA spy chief General Michael "evesdropping" Hayden.

I guess Bush really wants to shove his illegal spying activities in American's faces again, as this HAS to come up in confirmation hearings.

I only hope someone will ask Hayden about this:
Gen. Michael Hayden refused to answer question about spying on political enemies at National Press Club. At a public appearance, Bush's pointman in the Office of National Intelligence was asked if the NSA was wiretapping Bush's political enemies. When Hayden dodged the question, the questioner repeated, "No, I asked, are you targeting us and people who politically oppose the Bush government, the Bush administration? Not a fishing net, but are you targeting specifically political opponents of the Bush administration?" Hayden looked at the questioner, and after a silence called on a different questioner.

Good Rundown on Bush's Penchant for Spying on Americans

33% ABC

Poll: Bush's Approval Falls to New Low
Poll: Conservatives Drive Bush's and Republican Congress' Approval Ratings to New Lows
This week's survey of 1,000 adults, including 865 registered voters, found:

Just 33 percent of the public approves of Bush's job performance, the lowest of his presidency. That compares with 36 percent approval in early April. Forty-five percent of self-described conservatives now disapprove of the president.

Just one-fourth of the public approves of the job Congress is doing, a new low in AP-Ipsos polling and down 5 percentage points since last month. A whopping 65 percent of conservatives disapprove of Congress.

A majority of Americans say they want Democrats rather than Republicans to control Congress (51 percent to 34 percent). That's the largest gap recorded by AP-Ipsos since Bush took office. Even 31 percent of conservatives want Republicans out of power.

Possibly his best line:
"I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound -- with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world."
