Rush Limbaugh - 25%
John Boehner (GOP House Leader) - 3%
Mitch McConnell (Republican Senate Leader) - 3%
Michael Steele (RNC Chairman) - 12%
There is no leader - 56%
Who's discounting Rush? I'm saying he's large and in charge!But isn't it just like an "open minded" and "tolerant" Librul to just discount anyone who doesn't agree with them?
Ridge conclusively states in this interview last night, that he was not accusing anyone from the administration of trying to politicize the terror alert system.
I would say ladies and gentlemen, that this attempt by the left to once again destroy George W. Bush has failed, and can confidently say "Case Closed" on this issue.
If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
Food for Thought:
B and B: Politicization of terror alertsBut take away the data about approval ratings and simply examine the timeline of terror alerts. This shows that , come summer of 2004, in the run-up to the Presidential election, the frequency of terror alerts dramatically increased. In my view, this is an illustration (though of course it does not prove) that Bush indeed used terror alerts politically. Not to boost sagging approval ratings, but to maintain a climate of fear in this country, since fearful people rally around their leaders, no matter who they happen to be.
While this is hardly conclusive evidence by any measure, it is extremely sketchy that there was no monkey business when there was a significently disproportionate number of alerts leading up to the Nov 2004 election with very few following it in the following years. Bush not leaving office means we're more safe when Bush was in office? That makes no sense.
I can't seem to find the raw data though. Anyone have the complete list of terror alerts?
