Poll: Most Americans Say Bush Not Honest


WASHINGTON (AP) - Most Americans say they aren't impressed by the ethics and honesty of the Bush administration, already under scrutiny for its justifications for an unpopular war in Iraq and its role in the leak of a covert CIA officer's identity.

Almost six in 10 - 57 percent - said they do not think the Bush administration has high ethical standards and the same portion says President Bush is not honest, an AP-Ipsos poll found. Just over four in 10 say the administration has high ethical standards and that Bush is honest. Whites, Southerners and evangelicals were most likely to believe Bush is honest.

Bush, who promised in the 2000 campaign to uphold ``honor and integrity'' in the White House, last week ordered White House workers, from presidential advisers to low-ranking aides, to attend ethics classes.

The president gets credit from a majority for being strong and decisive, but he's also seen by an overwhelming number of people as ``stubborn,'' a perception reinforced by his refusal to yield on issues like the Iraq war, tax cuts and support for staffers under intense pressure.

More than eight in 10, 82 percent, described Bush as ``stubborn,'' with almost that many Republicans agreeing to that description. That stubborn streak has served Bush well at times, but now he is being encouraged to shake up his staff and change the direction of White House policies.

Concern about the administration's ethics has been fueled by the controversy over flawed intelligence leading up to the Iraq war and the recent indictment of Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide, I. Lewis ``Scooter'' Libby, on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice for his role in the leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's name.

That loss of trust complicates Bush's efforts to rebuild his standing with the public. His job approval rating remains at his all-time low in the AP-Ipsos poll of 37 percent.

``Honesty is a huge issue because even people who disagreed with his policies respected his integrity,'' said Bruce Buchanan, a political scientist from the University of Texas.

The mandatory White House lectures on ethics for its employees came after the Libby indictment, and some people say they aren't impressed.

``It's like shutting the barn door after the horse escaped,'' said John Morrison, a Democrat who lives near Scranton, Pa.

``This week's elections were just a preview of what's going to happen,'' he said, referring to Tuesday's New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial races, both won by Democrats. ``People are just fed up.''

Some Republicans are nervous about the GOP's political position.

``A lot of elected Republicans are running for the hills in the Northeast,'' said Connecticut GOP strategist Chris DePino after what he called ``a waterfall of missteps'' by Republicans. Bush and the GOP must return to their message that the United States has been safe from terrorism during his administration, DePino said.

Only 42 percent in the new poll said they approve of Bush's handling of foreign policy and terrorism, his lowest rating yet in an area that has long been his strongest issue.

The war in Iraq is at the core of the public's unrest, polling found.

In an AP-Ipsos poll in early October, almost six in 10 disapproved of the way Bush was doing his job, and Iraq was a dominant factor.

When those who disapproved of Bush were asked in an open-ended question the top reason, they most frequently mentioned the war far ahead of the second issue, the economy.

``To use an unfortunate metaphor, Iraq is a roadside bomb in American politics,'' said Rich Bond, a former national Republican chairman.

Many of those who approve of Bush's job performance cited his Christian beliefs and strong values, the second biggest reason for support after backing his policies. :shock:

``I know he is a man of integrity and strong faith,'' said Fran Blaney, a Republican and an evangelical who lives near Hartford, Conn. ``I've read that he prays every morning asking for God's guidance. He certainly is trying to do what he thinks he is supposed to do.''

The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted Nov. 7-9 by Ipsos, an international polling firm, and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

This quote says lots.

``I know he is a man of integrity and strong faith,'' said Fran Blaney, a Republican and an evangelical who lives near Hartford, Conn. ``I've read that he prays every morning asking for God's guidance. He certainly is trying to do what he thinks he is supposed to do.''

It should read, "I know he is a man of NO integrity and LITTLE faith" said another clone, a Republican and another phony christian who lives in Anytown, GOP, USA, "I've read that he begs every morning asking god Cheney's guidance. He certainly is led into trying to do what he thinks he's told to do."

The whole Bush family is a group of intergenerational liars and butt hole surfers, so why should we believe anything any of these perverted discples of evil empire builders say.

Check out these sites from todays newsletters.

- Bush Family Crimes - VIDEO
A history of the Bush family lies and greed for personal gain and profit. it's definitely an example of lapse of morals and real values. No christians here, just intergenerational liars, cheaters and thieves. El Busto- Spanish for shrub. W's nickname.
- GOP memo touts new terror attack as way to reverse party's decline - A confidential memo circulating among senior Republican leaders suggests that a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and "restore his image as a leader of the American people."

A gang of thieves in mutual conspiratorial agreement- the GOP.

9/11 News :
Former Cleveland Mayor Reported Flt.93 Landed There on 9/11 - Former Cleveland Mayor Reported Flight 93 Landed at Cleveland Airport on 9/11 and Flight 175 in Vicinity. Cincinnati WCPO TV Cover-ups Why Account Removed From Web Site - State sponsored U.S. media ignores story, leaving 'internet hounds' to smell out the truth behind what really happened to the passengers on the doomed flights.
The physics of 9/11 - including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell - prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor. In fact, it's likely that there were "pre-positioned explosives" in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones. - "It is quite plausible that explosives were pre-planted in all three buildings and set off after the two plane crashes - which were actually a diversion tactic," he writes. "Muslims are (probably) not to blame for bringing down the WTC buildings after all," Jones writes.

More academics and people in power are realising that the evidence is against the official version. It was impossible for an airplane to take down a steel frame building. It has never happened. The planes were diverted and something happened. Were the terrorists plans known and they were set up to take the fall?

. Pledging to cut spending and slim taxes, GOP finds they do not have enough votes to pass budget - House Republican leadership is scrambling after being unable to pass a major budget bill following defections from numerous members of their own party, RAW STORY has learned. Rank-and-file Republicans are upset at the extent of spending cuts in the bill.

. Rep. Davis threatens subpoenas - House Government Reform Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-Va.) yesterday threatened to subpoena three members of the Bush Cabinet and White House counsel Harriet Miers if they do not comply with document requests issued by his select committee on Hurricane Katrina response.

They're so fucked up by their leaders scheming policies, that they're turning on their own people. Yea politics. The chickenshits have come home to roost.

No wonder Americans don't trust Bush and the GOP. They expect the people to do as their told and not what is done to them. You can only lie for so long before the lie is found out. It's just getting to complicated to keep covered up for much longer. It's coming crashing down like the WTC that spawned it.
