Trust Him?

Sigh. George and the boys are getting so desperate, they're turning into a parody of themselves. AP (10.03.06):
"President Bush, on a campaign swing in the West, is telling voters that the Democratic Party is weak-kneed on national security and shouldn't be trusted to hold the reins of Congress." Bush Says Democrats Shouldn't Be Trusted
This Administration? National security? The envelope, please. McClatchy (10.02.06):
"Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and former Attorney General John Ashcroft received the same CIA briefing about an imminent al-Qaida strike on an American target that was given to the White House two months before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The State Department's disclosure Monday that the pair was briefed within a week after then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice was told about the threat on July 10, 2001, raised new questions about what the Bush administration did in response, and about why so many officials have claimed they never received or don't remember the warning." Rumsfeld, Ashcroft received warning of al Qaida attack before 9/11
There's plenty more where that came from, too. We suppose we could mention how well the boys did with Katrina, but that would be piling on. And even though the Administration doesn't, at least we still have Jack to kick around. Then he wants us to trust the Republicans on Capitol Hill? Yeah, sure. Then there's this little poll from last year. WSJ (11.23.05), via TheCarpetbagger:
"While the telephone survey of 1,011 U.S. adults indicates about 64% of Americans believe the Bush administration 'generally misleads the American public on current issues to achieve its own ends,' opinion on the topic is clearly divided along party lines. A large majority (68% to 28%) of Republicans say the Bush administration generally provides accurate information." Majority Believe White House Misleads Public, Poll Shows
The tell in this poll is that almost three out of ten folks in his own damned party think he's a liar. Bring it on, George.
