Once again Bush and his administration are playing the politics of fear. Anyone who can't see the correlation between the "fear index" and Bush's approval ratings is either an absolute Bush apologist or simply have their head in the sand.

...and you Bush apologists claim that Bush doesn't govern by polls.....please......!

What are you talking about??

The terror-alert level changed to high (orange ) in August 2004 for the financial districts in NYC, New Jersey and Washington, DC and again in July 2005 for only mass transit systems in large cities after the London bombings.

It's been at "elevated" (yellow) for the rest of the country since May 2003.

Hey Mickey or Goofey or whatever Disney character you are, it's about time you took some responsibility for your posts. Where is your supporting evidence to this wild claim? Please post a link showing that the terror alert has been raised and show where it is a direct result of the President's approval rating. If you can't do that, then kindly own up to your pathetic credibility. Thanks.

A Cornell sociologist says he has found scientific evidence that, whenever the government issues a terrorism alert, President Bush's approval ratings go up, even on domestic issues, such as his handling of the economy.
<snip> http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A28037-2004Oct12.html?nav=rss_politics



(CBS) The latest CBS News poll finds President Bush's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 34 percent, while pessimism about the Iraq war has risen to a new high. <snip> http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/02/27/opinion/polls/main1350874.shtml

If this is true, and the terror alert rises are directly proportional to Mr. Bush's ratings as been suggested, then we can expect the terror alert to rise if it hasn't already. Break out the duct tape and plastic folks!:rofl

Derogatory words, certainly. But Mr. Dude is a self claimed Disney Dude. Take it up with him.

That's quite a crystal ball you have. How very bold of you to state the terror level is about to be elevated. Keep us posted, okay?

Honestly, who pays attention to the "terror alert" anyways?

Once you cry wolf one time too many, no body will listen anymore.

I agree... let's do away with the terror threat level. That way, the libs can scream and cry that no warning was given if there's ever another terrorist attack.

They need something new to bitch about.

Hold on!:shock: I thought the Bush cultists said that thanks to Mr. Bush we haven't had a terrorist attack since 9/11? (I always cringed when they would say that. Much like waiting for the other shoe to drop.) What has changed? Are we expecting an attack now? Have we changed our tune? I thought Bush had all that under control. What happened?

Oh my!! What to do??
