"A Miserable Failure": Now More Than Ever
Forty-one percent of respondents said Bush's presidency will be seen as unsuccessful in the long run, while 26 percent said the opposite. Thirty-five percent said it was too early to tell, according to the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. ... The increasing pessimism about Bush's long-term prospects comes at a time when many polls have found the public increasingly is negative about Bush's performance and the direction of the country. Seven in 10 said they want the next president to offer policies and programs that are different from the Bush administration's.And that's not all:
Republicans give the president mixed reviews in many of these areas. Almost half of Republicans said Bush's policies have made the deficit worse and just 12 percent say he has improved that situation.My Schadenfreude is tempered by the fear that if and when the Busheviks realize the party's over [no pun intended], they'll push through as much Bad Stuff as they possibly can before they lose power. "It's going to get worse before it gets better" will be an understatement.
Yes, I know. It's absurd. It's ridiculous. It's unthinkable.
And it's worse than anything except the alternatives.
