Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Bush speaks tonight

A new Zogby Poll has found that Bush’s number have reached the lowest point since 9/11. "Less than half (45 percent) of the respondents said they rated his job performance good or excellent, while a majority (54 percent) said it was fair or poor." Do watch his speech tonight. There are large and consequential games afoot that go way beyond poll numbers.

Re: "no economic plan"

"U.S. Productivity Soars in 2nd Quarter"

"Productivity - the amount an employee produces for each hour of work - soared at an annual rate of 6.8 percent in the April-to-June quarter, even stronger than the government’s first estimate of a 5.7 percent growth rate. The revised reading was better than the 6.4 percent growth rate economists were predicting and marked the largest increase since the first quarter of 2002.

"Even so, with other parts of the economy on the mend, economists believe the Federal Reserve probably will hold a key short-term interest rate steady at a 45-year low of 1 percent when its meets on Sept. 16. Low short-term rates, along with President Bush’s third tax cut, should induce consumers and businesses to step up spending and investment, thus boosting economic growth, analysts say.

"The 6.8 percent productivity growth rate registered in the second quarter was three times faster than the 2.1 percent growth rate posted in the first quarter, which from an economic perspective is good news.

"For the economy’s long-term health and rising living standards, solid productivity gains are crucial. They allow the economy to grow faster without triggering inflation. Companies can pay workers more without raising prices, which would eat up those wage gains. And, productivity can bolster a company’s profitability.

"Businesses boosted output at a brisk 4.4 percent rate in the second quarter, up from a 1.4 percent growth rate in the first quarter.

"Workers’ hourly compensation, adjusted for inflation, rose at a 3.2 percent rate in the second quarter, up from a 0.2 percent growth rate in the first quarter."

Only the Democrats would think so. Their ONLY "Economic Plan" is to "RAISE TAXES".


"Head to Head" Polling 9/03 - George W. Bush vs. the Dwarfs or the Evil Queen

John Kerry (Dopey): 50% vs. 45% Bush Wins!

Joseph Lieberman (Sleepy): 50% vs. 44% Bush Wins!

Howard Dean (Doc): 52% vs. 42% Bush Wins Decisively!

Dick Gephardt (Grumpy): 53% vs. 42% Bush Wins Decisively!

Hillary Rodham Clinton (the Evil Queen): 50% vs. 47% Bush Wins!

"Mirror, mirror on the wall...who’s the fairest of them all?"--the evil queen to her magic mirror

If the Democrats nominate Howard "Doc" Dean, as they apparently are determined to do, I’ll bet that G.W. Bush will accomplish a historical first in the 2004 Presidential elections by winning ALL 50 States, and that his "coattails" will elect a "filibuster-proof" GOP Senate, and add at least 50 new Republicans to the House.

"Run Howard, Run!"
