Straight to Hell

Poll Finds Bush Job Rating at New Low:

"The survey found that 38 percent of the public approve of the job Bush is doing, down three percentage points in the past month and his worst showing in Post-ABC polling since he became president. Sixty percent disapprove of his performance."
Accept it: He's an amazingly unpopular president

Leaker in Chief? Scooter Libby and George Bush:

"Republicans on Capitol Hill worried that the attacks on Bush's integrity would further sink his poll ratings and hurt the GOP in November. 'Leaker in chief is something that could stick,' said a senior GOP aide, who declined to be named for fear of angering the president."

Phone-Jamming Records Point to White House:
"Key figures in a phone-jamming scheme designed to keep New Hampshire Democrats from voting in 2002 had regular contact with the White House and Republican Party as the plan was unfolding, phone records introduced in criminal court show.

The records show that Bush campaign operative James Tobin, who recently was convicted in the case, made two dozen calls to the White House within a three-day period around Election Day 2002 — as the phone jamming operation was finalized, carried out and then abruptly shut down."

Rep. John Murtha: Time to Change Direction:
"The President is using fear to keep our troops in Iraq. Fear of what might happen if we leave Iraq. He is saying we should have an open-ended commitment to stay in Iraq, yet he has NO plan. His plan is to cross his fingers and hope that the Iraqis will form a unity government. But hope is not a plan. And for as long as he continues down this vague, open-ended path, more American lives will be lost, and billions of more dollars will be spent. There are only two plans: mine and the President’s. On second thought, there is only one plan: mine. 'Stay the course' is not a plan. It is time to change direction. We should fear only our failure to change."

Two Charged With Filing Fake Obituary:
Two people who police say conspired to get off of work for a few days by filing a fake obituary with a newspaper have been arrested.

James Ralph Snyder, 36, and Mary Jo Elizabeth Jensen, 33, both of Waterloo, participated in the scam by filing an obituary saying Jensen's 17-year-old son had died, police said."
