Video: Latest AP Poll: Bush at Lowest Rating Ever.

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on July 3rd, 2006 8:40 am by HL

Check out a video clip from CNN where they discuss Bush’s latest poll numbers. As usual CNN does everything it can to try to make Bush look good, despite the fact that he could not possibly look worse. (“So many good things coming out of Washington, why do you suppose the Presidents numbers are so low???) What a joke. Click on the Bush story, there are other video news clips as well

  1. Buck Says:

    Why do I think the presidents numbers are so low? Well because of the way they poll! For instance Bush was polling in the high 30s to mid 40s the night before the 04 election. Why then did he win? Because when you call 1059 adults and ask them how they will vote this by no means represents the mood of the country! Even if you do it on a daily basis it is still a false sample. I call it the 20 point gap. This inconsistant sampleing method causes dems and libs to always overshoot the mark on their projected support. If CNN (big time liberal but I still likem’) is showing Bush at 35% support in actuality and in reality he is at about 54 or 55% or so. Just like the night of the election. We have already had an election on Bush any way. So…would have should have could have is just that. 09 is a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggg time away. Later gator….Buck out.

  2. SFLiberal Says:

    In reply to Buck.. the reason why the liberals always get fewer votes in elections than the polls would indicate is that, unfortunately, the liberals make up most of the 50% of the country who don’t turn out to vote. As HL so rightly reports, a big part of this is roadblocks thrown up to make voting difficult. But that still leaves a lot of people who would vote for the left if they just showed up. If the Democrats ever figure out how to get all of their ‘base’ to actually cast a ballot then they would win every election in a landslide. This is why Republicans try to keep people from voting and Democrats keep trying to make voting easier.

  3. april Says:

    How in the heck do Republicans make it hard for people to vote? The polls are open on voting day from 8-8. You go there and vote. Period. What’s ‘hard’ about that?

  4. Buck Says:

    I would agree (suprise suprise) that the dems would win every election if that group of people would energize. I disagree that republicans are conjuring voter fraud. End the end I dont think you can call people who dont vote “a base”. My one vote is more power full than 10000 potential but not quite liberal votes. So If yall want to raise my taxes. If you want to make me get my gas hog off the road. If your ready to dismantle missile defense. If you want the US to chicken out in the war on terror …..well….quit feeling so disenfranchised and get off your ass and vote for the most liberal candidate near you. Im not feeling disenfranchised. Im feeling represented like a mother fu*ker. Can I get a hell yeah?????Buck out….

  5. april Says:

    Hell Yeah, Buck.

  6. SFLiberal Says:

    Buck was trying to say, but not very well, that the polling is wrong when it shows Bush only has a 40% approval rating and cited as his example that Bush actually gets 50% of the vote and wins elections. I said that he wins because all of the disapproving people don’t vote, not that the polls are wrong. We can write books about why people don’t vote but it is a problem that they don’t because 60% of the people don’t like the government they end up with. Part of the reason that they don’t vote is structural (4 hour waits to vote in Ohio in 2004, needing a drivers license or birth certificate to register to vote in Arizona, ex-felons not being able to vote in Florida, which eliminates a large set of black voters, etc.) and part of the reason is that some people can’t or won’t make the time to register and to vote. But every attempt to make registering to vote and voting itself more difficult is promoted by Republicans and every effort to make voting easier is made by Democrats. Surely you can give me a ‘hell yeah’ on that. So Buck, I’d say you are way over-enfranchised and you should be very happy with the way things are and with this crowd that is running things. But as the polls show, most of us aren’t.

  7. Buck Says:

    Felons voting? What the hell???? I myself would feel disenfranchised if that went down. I give the county my personal info to get my voter registration card. Why the hell shouldnt everone else do the same?? I mean I encourage people to vote even If I disagree with them. But to let any sumbitch just walk in and mark his X good god. There are too many sumbitches comming and going out of the country to do that. Fu*k, If we could do that I would walk in 10 different times.

    So thats a big NOPEY NOPEY!!!

    April…thanks for the HELL YEAH!!

    Buck out!!!

  8. SFLiberal Says:

    Fortunately in most states ex-felons can vote so you’ve got some work to do, Buck, to get those people off the voting list. I’ll be looking for you to lead the charge on that one. Maybe you can get Tom Delay and Jack Abramoff to help you.. they’re not doing anything now.
    Happy 4th and good luck getting the number of voters down to where GWB can safely declare himself King. It’ll be like there never was a Declaration of Independence.

  9. Buck Says:

    Im sorry! You did in fact say ex felons. My bag! I dont want to keep any one from voting! I dont think non citizens should be able to vote though. I list my name and address and criminal history when filling out a voter registration card. What do you think the standard should be? How low on the limpo bar can you go. Im telling you straight. If it ever gets lax like your talking about Im gonna vote 100 times.

    happy 4th to you to!
    Yes sir !!! 230 years of kicking ass!!

    Buck out!!!

  10. lmz90028 Says:

    SFL never said non-citizens should vote! Where are you getting that from???

  11. Buck Says:

    All the crap about republicans making it harder for people to vote. Where does that come from??? All their doing is making sure the rules are followed. Proper identification and so forth. Where do I get non citizens being able to vote? Well Duhhhhhhh If we dont have those identification and voting record procedures your bitching about that would indeed occur!! That is what we are talking about is it not?? Proper identification procedures? Voter fraud? I think its a case of lazy asses and drag asses not showing up to the voting booth on time. They act like clocks were never invented. They dont get to vote so its the rest of our fault?? well booo hooo!!

    Republicans trying to prevent voting is a major line of cockamamy and all yall know it. So what is exactly easier for me to vote? How is that determined ? How has the dems made it easier for me to vote ???ha ha ha ha ha ha. It is as easy as taking a pee already. You would have to be deaf, dumb or blind or some one that dont think we should have voter registration procedures to not be able to hack it !

    ha ha ha ha ha ha I want an example of that alleged line of bull. It better be something along the lines of physical violence or its all dreamland!!
    Buck out!!!

  12. april Says:

    Who came up with that 60% of the people are dissatisfied? What a load of caca. No, it’s about 10%, they just make so much freakin’ noise they sound like 60%. I’ll tell you something. We, (decent, hard working, taking care of family, God fearing, good and kind Americans) are fed up with the BULLS#$T from the screeching left. You know, the people who despise the country they grew up in, and look down on anybody who loves it, filled with the belief that because they are hate-filled, that makes them smarter than us. Americans don’t NEED to be told how to live, we got it. We don’t NEED to be told how to treat others, we got it. The Left is akin to the schoolyard bully in grade school, who gets his ass handed to him by the quiet boy who tires of his behavior. Most of the citizens of this wonderful country are the quiet boy, and we are, TIRED. OF. IT.

  13. lmz90028 Says:

    If you think Americans don’t need to be told how to live, then how is it YOUR party that is trying to pass a constitutional amendment saying who can be married (the first time a constitutional amendment actually taking away rights would be passed since prohibition, which was clearly a failure). Or saying who can choose to use contraceptives, or whether they want to have a child, or whether they want to be able to lead private lives without worrying about uncle sam tapping their phone lines and peering into their bank accounts? April, I get what you are saying, and I agree that Americans are smart enough to lead their own lives, but I don’t see how the Repub party line is furthering that cause.

    And Buck, what SFLib was complaining about was requiring birth certificates or drivers licenses to vote. Last I heard, Americans were not required to have drivers licenses. Many adult Americans do not drive, and they don’t have to. But I guess they do to vote. And who the hell still has their birth certificate? I, who have lived in the US all my life, have no clue where mine is. Guess I shouldn’t be able to vote according to some, despite the fact that my right to vote is protected by the constitution. At least it is now that some pesky liberals back in the day decided to shake things up a bit and give women the right to vote.

    And the fact that you are god fearing doesn’t impress me. Last I heard there was freedom of AND FROM religion in this country. Isn’t that why this country was founded????

  14. april Says:

    Imz, What on earth makes you think that it was liberals who fought for womens’ right to vote? Because you believe it to be so, it is? I know where my birth certificate is, and all my children’s too. The fact that you don’t even care about where yours is, speaks volumes about liberals, which you seem to be championing. Liberals just cannot go along with any kind of rules set by anyone other than themselves, even if the rules are helpful. Because they are annoying and obstructionist. Oh and you stated that you are unimpressed with the fact that I am God fearing. Well then, it’s a really good thing that I don’t give a rat’s a$$ what impresses you, isn’t it?

  15. Buck Says:

    So IMZ. What should we have to show when getting our ballad?? A toothless smile? Dls and birth certificate are the most common IDs. I show my Dl or my ID! So whats up?

    Oh yeah. Clinton tapped phone lines and checked bank accounts all the time. Digging into the NRAs business and tapping phone lines in Waco and all kind of bull. Hes mr Slick so he just did not tell the press like Bush did. Buck out!!!

  16. lmz90028 Says:

    Clearly you do care, you take the time to rant about how annoying us liberals are! If you don’t care, you won’t bother responding to this post.

    You continue to miss the point of why requiring drivers licenses and birth certificates infringes on a fundamental right to vote. Clearly you are unaware of how our constitutional rights are protected, but any government policy that infringes on a fundamental right is to be subject to the highest level of scrutiny. There must be no less restrictive means by which to achieve the end. If the end is preventing voter fraud, which is of course a compelling government interest, then the methods used to do that must be designed in such a ways as to protect the fundamental rights of the greatest number of people possible. A policy that prevents people without one particular form of identification available from voting is clearly not narrowly tailored. Many people don’t have drivers licenses. Guess who a lot of them are…low income people who rely on public transportation. How convenient! And who may not have a birth certificate…hmmm…maybe people who were born in other countries who are now legally US citizens….hmmm….convenient again. This doesn’t happen by accident.

  17. april Says:

    Clearly, you don’t understand how requiring proof of citizenship in order to VOTE makes sense. No you probably think everyone who is in our country legal or not should be able to vote- because everybody is wonderful, and all opinions count and let’s all have a group hug! Everybody has a birth certificate, or can get a copy. Or should have a copy of proof of citizenship. Get a hold of yourself, liberal, I really don’t care how you feel, I was answering your comment on mine, which, by the way, was not directed at you. You’re wrong. Go fight with somebody else, I’m not interested in you.

  18. lmz90028 Says:

    Ah good, I’m glad to see we finally agree. People should be able to provide proof of citizenship in order to vote using any reasonable and reliable method available to them, and you seem to agree. If you read a little more carefully, if you bothered to at all, you would have realized that my last post is not really inconsistent with yours. (Well, minus your compassionately conservative personal attacks at me of course).

    And your “you probably think” actually does not express anything near what I think, but thanks for playing.

    You are this angry when your beloved party is in complete control of the federal government?! I can’t imagine what you must have been like during the Clinton years! The hatred must have been oozing out of every pore.

  19. Buck Says:

    ALL RIGHT APRIL!!! HELL YEAH!!

    Can you tell me how in the hell producing those documents infringes on my fundamental right to vote. I have produced those documents and they did not run at me with handcuffs? They did not hesitate to give me a ballod 1 second. I promptly set down and voted for Bush. I smiled and was gratified by the fact that Texas would be candy apple red shortly.

    In the time of ID fraud you need to produce more than 1 form Of ID or non citizens could EASILY vote. Your wrong on that IMZ . So your not for birth cirtificates because of foriegn born citizens. Your not for DLs being shown because some poor people dont have cars! Again I ask you what document should I have to produce when getting my ballad????

    What preytell in your mind is that one form of reasonable and reliable identification???

    A toothless smile??????Buck out!!!

  20. lmz9008 Says:

    You people are so not hearing what I am saying! I said that people should be required to show ID, but any impediments to voting have to infringe on people’s fundamental right to vote as little as possible. That means requiring ONE PARTICULAR form of ID is unconstitutional. So it’s all well and good Buck that you have both a drivers license and a copy of your birth certificate. But a lot of people don’t. They should be allowed to vote by showing AN ALTERNATIVE FORM. Yes, they do exist. Which is exactly what your girl April said in her last post, in clear agreeement with me. Jesus people, read what I’m saying before you jump down my throat!!! So I never said there was ONE form of reasonable and reliable identification. My whole point is that there IS NOT JUST ONE. Reading comprehension should be learned in elementary school!

    It’s BALLOT!!!!!!!

    And I have all my teeth, but I’m sure your toothless smile is charming.

  21. april Says:

    I don’t hate you. The word is disdain. And no, I’m not angry. I’m not the one screeching in the streets every time something doesn’t go my way. Alternative, schmalternative. Everything is a compromise with liberals. Nothing is black and white, it’s all grey and murky. Annoying.

  22. SFLiberal Says:

    I’m glad you all had such a loving exchange while I was doing other things over the last couple of days. I won’t try to restart the fire here but just want to point out that our friends in the House of Republicans want to stop key parts of the Voting Rights Act from being extended. This is a law that was passed when people were being killed just for trying to register people to vote. So our conversation here is timely and still relevant and the rules on how people are actually allowed to vote are still very controversial. And just for the record.. I’ve been voting for nearly 40 years and have never had to show ID when registering to vote. When you register, you are declaring that you are who you say you are and that you are a citizen. If they find out you’re not, then they can and should throw the book at you, which they should have done with Ann Coulter the last time she voted.

  23. lmz90028 Says:

    April-boo hoo. Last parade I went to there were a bunch of right-wingers screeching in the street with “God Hates ___” (fill in the blank with your favorite minority) signs.
    While I’m sure you would never do such a disgusting thing, its not just liberals exercising their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.

  24. Buck Says:

    I understand your a wanna be teacher or a english substitute or something. Or you would care less about my grammer, spelling and syntax!

    Hey IMZ! That ALTERNATIVE FORM OF ID!!!……………………………..What is it???????? I think your dodging the question. What is that alternative form of ID…….”that does exist”?????

    Buck out….

  25. april Says:

    Well, there you go. I never go to parades, don’t like the music. Boo hoo what? I think you’re making up the story about the right wingers with ‘God hates…’ signs. Besides, they’re not right wingers, they’re nuts. And, what is that alternative form of ID you’re talking about?

  26. Buck Says:

    bucks wife here i hate this political shit. but buck lets me read it from time to time when it gets funny. i have your alternative id, it is a social security card with your picture on it . the gov. should make the picture a requirement on them . EVERYONE in the US has one.
    makes sense to me. have a wonderful day.

  27. lmz90028 Says:

    State ID card (the usual form of ID for people who don’t have drivers licenses), passport, military ID (although I’m sure those NEVER get turned away).
    And no one’s photo is on their birth certificate so I’m not sure why you all think that’s a great form of ID anyhow.

  28. lmz90028 Says:

    My my, now accusing me of lying! If you would venture out into the world you would witness things like that yourself. I’ll take pictures of them for you next year at the West Hollywood parade. They’re there every year, on a beautiful, peaceful day, spewing hate. We all just point and laugh and roll our eyes, and go about our festivities!

  29. SFLiberal Says:

    Getting back to the subject of all of this debate.. here is an article from this morning’s NY Times. Apparently even in the Bright Red State of Georgia, Buck and April wouldn’t be happy with the voting rules:

    Judge Blocks Requirement in Georgia for Voter ID
    E-MailPrint Reprints Save

    By BRENDA GOODMAN
    Published: July 8, 2006
    ATLANTA, July 7 — For the second time, a judge has blocked a Republican-sponsored effort to require Georgia voters to present government-issued photo identification cards before they can cast a ballot.

    The judge, Melvin K. Westmoreland of Fulton County Superior Court, said the requirement violated the State Constitution by placing an undue burden on the fundamental right to vote.

    Although the legislature passed the requirement, Judge Westmoreland said, such a change would require citizens to approve an amendment to the State Constitution, which now says only that voters must be 18 years old, mentally competent and state residents.

    The judge’s temporary restraining order was in response to a legal challenge against the requirement filed by former Gov. Roy E. Barnes, a Democrat. Mr. Barnes argued that the requirement would make it harder for minorities, the elderly and the poor to vote.

    State officials immediately vowed to appeal the ruling to the Georgia Supreme Court. Gov. Sonny Perdue, a Republican who signed the measure into law earlier this year, said it was needed to ensure the integrity of the ballot box.

    “The sad fact is that dead people have cast votes in Georgia and — before this law is implemented — there was no way to tell how many deceased voters, felons or even illegal aliens may have been casting ballots in Georgia elections,” Mr. Perdue said.

    The law also faces a challenge in federal court, where a consortium of voter rights groups have sued on the grounds that it also violates the United States Constitution.

    Since it was first passed in March 2005, the voter ID law has whipsawed between the legislature and the courts, with lawmakers struggling to find a way to put the measure into effect without violating federal or state voter protections. Its first version required voters to have a driver’s license or other government ID, or to buy a special state card.

    That law was struck down in October by a federal judge, who said the requirement that voters buy the card amounted to an unconstitutional poll tax.

    The law was then rewritten by the Republican-led legislature to make the ID cards free. But the new version continued to draw strong criticism. Civil rights groups say those who lack a photo identification are more likely to be black or Hispanic, poor, or elderly — groups that traditionally cast their ballots for Democratic candidates.

    “The law continues to impose an unnecessary burden on voters and does nothing to protect against fraud in voting,” said Neil Bradley, associate director of the American Civil Liberties Union Voting Rights Project in Atlanta. Secretary of State Cathy Cox, a Democrat who oversees Georgia’s elections and who is also vying for the Democratic nomination for governor, said there had not been a proven case of voter fraud in the state in nearly a decade. Her office has estimated that some 676,000 otherwise eligible voters lack a driver’s license or state-issued photo ID.

    Without dwelling on the political implications of the law, Judge Westmoreland agreed with critics who said the legislature had pushed past constitutional protections in passing the measure.

    “The General Assembly has wide latitude to legislate unless it undertakes to act where the Georgia Constitution enumerates a clear and unmistakable right to Georgia’s citizens,” the judge wrote. “It is a given that any illegal restriction of the fundamental right to vote is prohibited.”

    Mr. Perdue said the state’s appeal would rest on ballot security. “I respectfully disagree with Judge Westmoreland and believe that Georgia’s law is not only constitutional, but a common sense, prudent protection of the election process,” he said.

    The restraining order means the law will not be in effect for the state’s primaries on July 18. He referred the matter back to state court for a civil trial.

  30. Buck Says:

    All that means squat!! You cant walk in and say “Im 18, mentally competent and a state resident give me a BALLOT” Maybe in Atlanta………….You can get two or three ballots like that I expect.

    Ill just know that April and I are right and leave it at that!!!!!

  31. april Says:

    Thank you, Buck. Right back atcha. So, Imz, going to parades is venturing out into the world? And, as to the article, it’s just another case of ‘bench legislature’ of which liberals are so fond, seeing as how they cannot win at the ballad box anymore.

  32. lmz90028 Says:

    The Repubs were all too happy with bench legislature when Bush v. Gore came down the pipeline. The Supreme Court completely took away what is the province of the states and told the state of Florida it couldn’t follow it’s own constiutional procedure for elections.

    So it’s not just libs who are fond of it…it got Bush into office when may have failed to win at the “ballad” box.

  33. SFLiberal Says:

    I have to ask.. Buck, which state do you vote in? And how do you show ID when voting absentee?

  34. april Says:

    Ah, but he didn’t ‘lose’ the second time did he?

    TEXAS OF COURSE!! What of it???

    Wild!!!!! I guess all liberals should start voting absentee ballots!!

    If your able to nab two or three ballots like that let me know!! I might want to vote for Mccain two or three times in 08…ha ha ha ha ha ha …Buck out!!!

  37. lmz90028 Says:

    To remain consistent in their positions, Buck and April would say we should toss the “ballads” of the troops over in Iraq voting absentee.

  38. april Says:

    BALLOT!!???? BALLOT???!!! I thought we were talking about a country song!! Geez! Well, it just goes to show you liberals, you’re much, much smarter than us! Here’s an idea for you. Go over to Tabacco’s blog at Blog City. He’s right up your alley. BALLOT! I get it now. Can we start over?

  39. april Says:

    I like those articles cited. Rolling Stone, Babel Fish, and The Daily Observer. Nuff said.

  40. HL Says:

    Apparently your not too good at “readin” as well as “writin” because the you were wrong on 2 of the 3 sources. Rolling Stone, you got right, but the other 2 are “What Really Happened”, and Greg Palast. What Really Happened is written by Michael Rivero who is a Conservative. He’s just not a Kool Aid drinking rah rah conservative. Greg Palast is the author of 2 books on elections, and the guy who uncovered the 2000 election theft. So keep up with those reading is fundamental lessons.

  41. april Says:

    My point is, HL, I really don’t give a sh*#. Thanks for the correction. I feel duly chastened.

  42. Buck Says:

    I have never said anything about throwing out ballots. That got pulled out of someones ass!! Now that you mention it Bush won florida easily in 04. I think it has alot to do with dems not being able to screw alot of military personel out of their votes this time. GOTCHA!!!

    Hey IMZ, I take it that you have PERSONEL DISDAIN for the US military and any kind of ID measures for voting. You really have issues. Are you having trouble with the teaching career??? Buck out!!

  43. april Says:

    Nor have I said anything about throwing out votes. But we just dumb rightwingers, so maybe we did and don’t know it, huh?

  44. lmz90028 Says:

    Actually my father is an veteran of the air force and I have nothing but respect for his service, and the fact that he now takes war very seriously since he has seen first-hand the destruction it can cause.

    April-you said it, I didn’t.

    Both of you conveniently ignored the question about how people voting absentee can show ID…

  45. april Says:

    The point is, as long as man has existed there has been war. Your loving utopia will never happen as long as mankind exists. It would be lovely, but it won’t happen. Absentee ballots? It is not my JOB to come up with a solution, nor would I be so arrogant as to think I know better than the people whose job it IS, to sit here and say it should be done thus or so. That is what is so completely annoying about liberals. They purport to know what should be done for every single issue. If you are so sure you know the answers, why don’t you make yourself a career in politics, and actually involve yourself in setting policy? I do my job, and I’m good at it. I leave alone that which I know nothing about.

  46. lmz90028 Says:

    I believe the government belongs to all of us, not just the politicians. Although I’m very glad to hear you take such a passive role. Will make life in the public sphere much more pleasant! I guess you are much more trusting of pols than I am.

    You sure had no problem getting on here (a blog meant for liberals) and spouting your opinion on which policies we should be following. Now faced with a question you can’t answer you say it’s not your problem. I think you just don’t have a decent response.

    I don’t see how trying to come up with a solution about a domestic matter as arrogance. I see arrogance as marching into a foreign country and telling them to model themselves after us.

  47. april Says:

    Yeah, that’s great. But we should get involved when it’s a cause that libs embrace, isn’t that right? Case in point ‘Save Darfur’. Passive? No, I vote. And the reason I happened onto this blog, was because of the title, and the fact that it was listed as a joke blog. They were right.

  48. Buck Says:

    I hear ya IMZ, dont trust them polls. Unless you want to pick and choose the polls you want to trust! Like Bush’s job approval rating polls. Stay consistant , and dont believe them polls.

    Right???? Buck out!!
