You know, I'm pretty bad at math. But I can't understand how someone who won and election by a clear (small, but clear, apparently) majority can have such low approval ratings a scant two months later!
WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) is entering his second term with the lowest approval ratings of any recent two-term president, even as he talks about an ambitious agenda of change, an Associated Press poll finds.Too bad Kerry was too spineless to wait for the Ohio recount. There are a lot of people in this country not included in Bush's 'mandate.'
Congress is viewed even more negatively — a troubling sign for Bush and Congress as they tackle such proposals as creating private accounts for those in the Social Security (news - web sites) system, overhauling the federal tax code and limiting lawsuit damages.
