Re: Bush's Approval Rating Falls to New Low
Well, two things:
1) Think in terms of the continuum of power: when Bush is out, they want one of their own in next, and what better way than to promote him (or her) as "Better than Bush." The future lame duck is now a political straw in order to set up the next one groomed for office, that's all.
2) As for the "Good life": the American Dream can turn into a nightmare overnight for some of these victims. It's called the "Extortionate Transaction": give someon a house, Cadillac RV, a nice pension, etc.; let them get used to the good life, and then threaten to take it away if they don't do what you want. Happens ALL THE TIME to some of the best in law enforcement and government. Total shame.
