The Observer | World | Republicans on edge after calls for more resignations

I sincerely hope that no one is fooled by this, so-called, shakeup. It matters not how many times Junior rearranges the deck chairs on the Titanic

The November elections aren't about Bush. They are about the arrogant, cover-up republicans in Congress that refused to do their jobs of oversight for all these years.

The Observer World Republicans on edge after calls for more resignations:

"George W Bush's second term is facing its biggest crisis as new polls show a continuing collapse in support and White House insiders expect more staff resignations over the next few days and weeks.

Rumours are swirling around Washington, focusing on some of the most senior members of Bush's team from Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to White House counsel Harriet Miers. At the same time, polls show that Bush's popularity has sunk to an all-time low, leaving Republican operatives panicking about the vital mid-term Congressional elections in November. A Fox News poll released last week showed Bush's approval rating at 33 per cent, while a new Pew poll had him at 35 per cent.

Last week also saw a dramatic reshuffle among White House staff as press spokesman Scott McClellan resigned and political guru Karl Rove had his political responsibilities sharply reduced. The changes came after Bush brought in Joshua Bolten as a new chief of staff to replace the loyal Andrew Card."
