Bush more worrisome than gay marriage, poll finds

Yoooo Hooooo Republicans … I have some bad news. Americans aren’t buyin your crap anymore. Whatcha gonna do now? Who ya gonna single out and shame and humiliate and relegate to second class citizenship now? Huh? People (well maybe not everyone) are not as dumb as you hoped and they get it. And you know what they get? They get that it’s gays who have the bull-eye on their backs right now, but that it could be them next. They just aren’t buyin the Gays are our problem line anymore. But guess what they are buyin: Bush is our problem:

When asked if they approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president, 39 percent said they "approve," 60 percent said they "disapprove," and 1 percent said they have "mixed feelings." (AP)

November is just around the corner. If you happen to be one of the 60 percent who disapprove of the job George W. Bush is doing, then vote out the people who enabled him every step of the way. Vote out the people who failed miserably at their job of providing oversight and balance: the Republicans in Congress who simply marched in unquestioning lockstep and never dared to break ranks even when they knew they should have. The very same people who spent time bashing gays when they should have been tending to what really ails Americans. The very same people who cared more about currying favor with people like James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson than the American people. The same people who chose divide and conquer at a time when we should have united to fight some very real enemies. The same people who abandoned every principle of their party and left this country far worse off than it was before they took control.

Let’s kick those bums off the hill this November. They have failed the American people miserably.
