That Giant Sucking Sound

You may remember that Ross Perot coined the phrase "giant sucking sound" during a debate over NAFTA with then Vice President Al Gore. (By the way, does anybody know what ever happened to the H at the beginning of Perot's name?) At the time Perot was referring to American jobs moving to Mexico, however I think the phrase can be currently applied to the Bush administration's popularity. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News Poll, Bush is headed down the drain.

If you've been following this blog (and according to my counter not many people have) you'll know that I've spent a lot of time discussing George W. Bush's truthfulness or, more appropriately, his lack of. Judging by these poll numbers more and more people are seeing through his deceits. The White House's lies and secrets are finally beginning to catch up to them.

Could it be the lack of WMDs that is finally doing him in? Maybe it's the continued instability of the situation in Iraq. Could it be the fact that Osama bin Laden has never been captured? It could be the abuse scandal that now appears on the brink of reaching to the highest powers in Washington. Still though, it could just be the fact that he continues to make poor, uninformed choices. Or maybe he's just a jackass, who knows?

Regardless of what the reason is, Bush is floundering. He is drowning in a sea of his own lies and secrets. The only thing that I think could save him would be the bin Laden life preserver. I expect to see it thrown in before November.

For more opinion on Bush and his lies check out this article from the L.A. Times.
