Woo woo woo woo... Coming... Woo woo woo woo... Almost there... Woo woo woo woo... What is it boss? I heard you holler.
Sit down, Karl. My goodness, you look a little red in the face. You feelin okay?
An eight ball?
Here you go. Hold on, I'll get you a clean paper bag... Now, I'm lookin for some good news, Karl, I'm lookin for some rockin good news.
I'd rather be president that be popular.
that... and, mmm... your core is holding well. Only a little drift there.
This says that 52% of conservatives still think you're doing a good job.
Indeed it is. And really, the best news of all is that this is a CBS / New York Times poll, so we can be pretty darn sure that their numbers are skewed.
sure you include that in the official talkin points file. What else do you
have? Getting any good vibrations from the trooperoonies?
Bless their hearts. That's the sort of spirit that makes your heart swell with pride. But I tell you what, Karl. Don't just give me the good news. I'm the 'take charge president'. I want the good and the bad.
Okay, then... This new BBC poll of over 40,000 people in thirty-five countries says that 60% of the responders believe that you've caused terror attacks to be more likely, against just 12% who think terrorist attacks have become less likely.
Wow. WOW! You're tellin me that there's 28% who don't have an opinion? Oh my God, Karl, that's a lot of potential hearts and minds that we can win over. Well you have made my day, Rovester. It's just one good news story after another... Why do you think the news media never focus on the positive side of things?
I really couldn't tell you, sir. They must be missing a large piece of spine.
