Stupid Republican Lapdogs Demand Four More Years of Bush

Bush is stupid again, and he's got followers, so be scared. Be very scared. They want him around for four more years.

I commented, rather harshly, on George Bush's claim that Republicans are the ones who bring us "peace and prosperity." Yeah, he is deluded. But his followers are deluded far more. Here it is from the AP:

Bush spoke to a boisterous crowd shortly after 7 a.m. EST. The ballroom erupted in cheers when someone shouted "Are there conservatives in the house?" When the president walked on stage, they clapped and chanted "Four more years! Four more years!"
Bush reached his lowest approval rating in The Associated Press-Ipsos poll on Friday as only 30 percent said they like the job he is doing, including an all-time low in his support by Republicans. Still, the crowd gave him standing ovations, cheering his comments on tax relief, the military buildup in Iraq, the Reagan years and his opposition to abortion. They booed when Bush said his critics want to expand the size and scope of the federal government.
Are these people complete nuts? Do they want government agents to invade their homes? Do they want record inflation, record deficits? Do they want thousands more to die in Iraq while Osama bin Laden gets off scott free?
