We at Niagara Times feel that John McCain is a viable candidate for the Presidency, as are Senators Obama and Clinton. But one really has to wonder what McCain is thinking in reaching out to George Bush for an endorsement. As the AP writes, "The Bush endorsement has baggage, reminding voters of the drawn-out Iraq War and the nation’s economic woes under the unpopular GOP president."
Bush's overall job approval rating has dropped to a new low in polling as 78% of Americans say that the national economy is getting worse according to the latest survey from the American Research Group. Among Americans registered to vote, 18% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 78% disapprove. Among all Americans, 19% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as President and 77% disapprove.
And you want his endorsement why?
