Compassion a conservative flop

News & Politics

After his recent speech the number of those who approve of Bush's handling of Katrina actually got worse. Noting that the change was primarily caused by a drop in Republican support, Billmon has a suggestion as to what's bugging the Republican base:

"According to Rasmussen, only 10% of the libs, and 11% of the Dems, gave the president good or excellent marks on Katrina after his speech, which is still about as close to rock bottom as it gets. But Republicans, and conservatives in particular, appear more likely to let their wallets move their hearts. (Big surprise, right?)"
