The people of the U.S., have not decided to fire current Presidency George W. Bush, but a lot could happen between now and November to undermine his presidency and prevent him from serving a second term, a political analyst says. "About half of Americans approve of the job George W. Bush is doing as president," says Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of "The Rothenberg Political Report." Rothenberg said that if the president's job approval ratings get up into the 50s so that 55 to 58 percent of the people approve of the job he's doing, he will be in great shape. The national polls aren't making the job of handicapping the presidential race any easier, says Rothenberg, who was making his thin straight appearance at the Delta agricultural and industrial development organization's annual gathering.
