Now Playing: it's a texas thang, baby: you wouldn't understand
According to this Washington Times report on President Bush's recent meeting with the Congressional leadership to get the Patriot Act renewed:
"If I worried about the polls, I'd be laying on the ground in the fetal position," Mr. Bush said.I often ask my ideological opponents why they are so enamored of polls and numbers when they never seem to make any difference. So Bush's approval rating is 42 percent or whatever it is? Who cares? If it were half that, he would still be right to prosecute the war against Islamofascism and if it were twice that, it wouldn't make it any more right. That may not be an especially "democratic" way of thinking about it, but let's be serious: the American People are going to have to have cartoon violence in their own streets before they finally brush off the liberal losers who try to undermine this President and give him their support as they have done before.
