Our president

This article reports that many people of the U.S. blamed President George W. Bush for the lack of disaster relief to the areas struck by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in the Gulf Coast. Nonetheless, the president's approval ratings plummeted following the tragedy. A recent CBS poll pegged his approval rating at thirty-seven percent, an all-time low. Contributing to the low approval rating was the waning support for the war in Iraq. As a result of the president's waning approval rating, the elite media and intellectuals would lead the people to believe that less people are listening to his message.
