Public weighs in
The Associated Press has reported on their most recent poll and the president won't like it. Only 35 percent of our fellow citizens think the nation is going in the right direction and only 41 percent approve of his handling of the Iraq invasion/insurgency/war/you name it. Fifty-nine percent oppose his loopy Social Security plan.
Imagine how people would respond if we had a strong Democratic Party laying out plans to bring our troops home and a progressive income tax alternative to the Bush give-away to the super rich. The people are once again leading the way; time for the politicians to catch up.
Wisconsin Democrats are meeting tonight and tomorrow. As one reporter suggested, the greatest fear of the party leadership is that "a debate could break out." One hopes they will take on the wars--the class war waged by the Bush administration, and the Iraq war that has cost hundreds of billions and nearly 1,700 soldiers killed.
