"Trust In President Plummets"

Karl Rove, source of the leak. The phony weapons of mass destruction. The cost and duration of the war in Iraq. The over-hyped Social Security crisis. The price tag of the Medicare legislation. The list of White House deceptions grows longer with each passing day. And it’s catching up to them.

According to the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, only 41 percent of Americans say they think President Bush is “honest and straightforward” (that’s down nine points since just January.)

At the same time, people who say they don’t think he’s honest or trustworthy rose nine points, up to 45 per cent.

You really can’t fool all the people all the time.
