Met Leon of Redstate (along with Erik) and it was great to see these guys in person. I had to laugh with them that my first Wikipedia entry was related to my being booted from Redstate. Rudy is about to speak and there are mixed feelings in this hard core republican crowd. The speech has filled to capacity so a lot of people have come back to blogger’s row. Hopefully my daughter got in. From what I have heard this has been the busiest day, probably because candidates are roaming around everywhere. One last update coming up!

    Lord knows we would hate to rain on the parade around the Kool-Ade-filled punchbowl at CPAC, but the latest polling for the Deciderer is troubling:

    President Bush has lost substantial support among members of his own party, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll:

    • Mr. Bush’s approval rating dropped 13 %-age points since last fall among Republicans.

    • Mr. Bush’s job approval remains low, with 29% of Americans saying they approve the way he is doing his job; 61 % disapproved.

    • 23 %of those polled approved of the way Bush is dealing with the situation in Iraq.

    • 25% approved of his handling of foreign policy.

    • Even the president’s campaign against terrorism is seen positively by only 40 % of those polled, while 53 % disapprove.

    • 75% of those polled say things are going badly for the United States in Iraq, and only 23 % say the efforts to bring stability and order to Iraq are going well.

    • 70%, including 52 % of Republicans, say there is not much the United States military can do to reduce the sectarian fighting in Iraq.

    • 23 % say the country is going in the right direction and 68 % consider it as having gotten off on the wrong track.

    Hey, Sooth, I guess it’s a good thing he’s not running again.

  3. Soothsayer says:

    Problem is the Bush stench lingers, and potential Republican candidates are a Nutcase (McCain), a Mormon, and a Twice-divorced Serial Adulterer who had his slut living in the Mayoral Mansion on the taxpayer’s dime.

    Lotsa luck in ’08.

    Granted Mc Cains Nuts, Rudy has been divorced twice, but why critisize Romney over his religion. If anything, at least he’s had one wife for 37 years. That’s something today!
    It would seem better than Hillary staying with a man who was never faithfull.
    Personally, I think ALL the Front Runners in BOTH Parties at this point in time Suck! But I’m conservative and none of the Front Runners in the Republican Party truely are. If any of those three get the nomination, for the first time in my life, I’ll vote third party or write in. Or stay home. Frankly, in N.C. there is no one who Represents me in the House or the Senate that I desire to help re elect. I have Robyn Hayes and Libby Dole, no finer stick a finger in the wind moderastes could be found. In fact Dole won’t even do interviews on our radio station. I guess the Questions are just to tough to answer!

    Bush still has well over 76% support among his own party. He is in the last two years of a two term presidency….this happens.

    Hillary Clinton’s negatives are about as high and she has not even had won. Imagine how much they would hate her 6 years later.

    People like you are going to be lost when Bush goes back to Texas and you have to live with the fact that there is still poverty and war in the world. I know there will be a few years of retroactive blaming going on but sooner or later the truth will dawn on you…you have been conned.

    BTW Sooth, throwing around the word slut and making fun of a man’s religion and talking about Bush’s stench makes you sound like a sexist, a bigot, and a hatemongering loon.
