If you need a reality check after reading Bill Keller’s biliously worshipful profile of our glorious leader in today’s New York Times Magazine, I’d recommend this piece by Robert Reich in the current American Prospect:
A midterm USA Today/CNN/Gallup Poll had Bush’s job approval rating falling to 58 percent, dropping below 60 percent for the first time since the September 11 attacks. Under these circumstances, any other president would be in danger of losing his job. But Rove has convinced the press, and therefore the American public, that this presidency is nearly invincible. He has done it with an ingenious blend of chicanery and obfuscation, aided by the Democrats’ utter incapability of devising a coherent message in response.
