Do you know who else should be awake? George Bush.
Honestly, how does this man sleep at night?
If I have a big, or even medium project, at work that is troublesome (or dental dreams), it can keep me awake most of the night. It is not that I need or want to be liked so much, but I do want to do a good job. I want to do what is right for my boss or the client.
The way I see it, the boss or client here are the American people. Not Bushie’s cronies. Not the middle east (who don’t really want us there anyway).
But yes, W has a hit an all-time low in the polls regarding how people who think he is doing a good job. According to Newsweek, Shrub’s approval rating is 28%!!!! …and this is poll was taken after his veto of last week’s congressional try at war funding and a forced exit strategy.
If there is any doubt that the U.S. folks want out of Iraq and/or at least want a frickin‘ plan or time table, I think this would be it. If people really thought he was on the right track, these poll times are pretty indicative of current thought.
And though I cannot remember the source, I saw a poll last Friday (5/4/07) that said 71% of military families want the troops out of Iraq. I would think that 100% would, since they have a family member there – but a lot of those folks still believe that 9/11 was tied to Saddam and that there were/are WMDs….so 71% is still pretty fuckin‘ high for that population.
If Bush were the CEO of a company……any company….an only 28% of his shareholders liked the job he was doing, he’d be out on his fucking ass.
I think presidents should get annual performance reviews – not just once every four years!
…then maybe we could all sleep.
