Hill;6/13/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 70, p14
The author reflects on the decreased approval rating garnered by U.S. President George W. Bush. He argues that Bush's behavior could be explained by starting from the premise that he no loner cares about the public's views on his policies. An overview of the falling of Bush's rating is offered. He believes that the President is unconcerned about public opinion, for the public's view cannot deteriorate any further.
