The Blind Presidency
It's bad when Fox News' website can't spin President Bush's problems. Their own poll finds Bush's approval rating at 33 percent. Thomas Mann, of the Brookings Institution, said, "The president is in serious political trouble." The recent White House shakeup was window dressing meant to disguise more serious problems.
Mann doesn't see Bush making policy changes. Bush is locked on staying the course. That rhetoric adverts attention from the fact Bush knows nothing about his own policies. Former Sec of Treasury Paul O'Neill described Bush as "a blind man" leading an administration "full of deaf people". The bad thing for the Republican Party is they can't talk sense into the man. The cover of Rolling Stone says it all.
