More and more Americans, INCLUDING REPUBLICANS, disapprove of President Bush’s performance, question his character, and no longer consider him a strong leader against terrorism, according to an AP-Ipsos poll.

And I know a lot of you, including myself, don’t agree with polls, but several different polls from several different polling companies are all coming up with the same result; REPUBLICANS ARE LOSING FAITH IN BUSH.

From Newsmax:

Nearly four out of five Americans, including 70 percent of Republicans, believe civil war will break out in Iraq - the bloody hot spot upon which Bush has staked his presidency. Nearly 70 percent of people say the U.S. is on the wrong track, a 6-point jump since February.

And how is the President reacting?

Is he talking about what a stupid idea Portgate was? Is he talking about closing the borders to stop illegals and terrorists?

Nope.

He is scheduled to deliver a series of three speeches this month aimed at persuading Americans that the War in Iraq was worth it, and he also plans to talk about “globalization.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES writes;

“The White House plans to have Mr. Bush expand his discussion of the need for the United States to embrace a new role in the world, even if that means explaining the benefits of globalization to a nation that does not appear to be in a mood to hear that message.”

After Portgate, is GLOBALIZATION really what you want to hear?

I am not in the mood to hear about globalization!

And about the outsourcing of jobs in this “global village” President Bush said while in India that while American jobs were often lost to outsourcing, “you don’t retrench and pull back.”

He said he had to convince Americans that “a 300-million-person market of middle-class citizens here in India” would soon be buying American goods.

“If we can make a product they want, then it becomes — at a reasonable price — and then all of a sudden, people will be able to have a market here,” he said.

You believe that? Or, would you just like to have the jobs back?

When Mr. Bush gave a set of speeches on Iraq in December, the calls to pull out were mostly from the left. Now, a rising chorus of neo-conservatives, who urged Mr. Bush to topple Mr. Hussein, say that, having liberated Iraq, the rest is up to the Iraqis.

ALRIGHT… TO ALL MY NEO-CONSERVATIVES OUT THERE…HAVE YOU LOST FAITH IN PRESIDENT BUSH?
