Poppy Bush attacked in Abu Dhabi for W.'s actions

People are now openly disrespecting George W. Bush in front of his father (HT: nyceve on Kos). While part of me feels bad for him, I'm glad to see that this is happening. W. deserves no aura of deference:
President Bush's father was forced into an emotional defense of his son yesterday in the Persian Gulf when an Arab audience launched a blistering surprise attack on his first-born.

"We do honor Americans, and I believe that they are highly respected in our country. However, we do not respect your son, and we do not respect what you are doing all over the world," college student Nevine Al Rumeisi told the former President at a leadership conference in the United Arab Emirates.

Her comment was roundly cheered by the business and political leaders gathered in once pro-American Abu Dhabi.

Americans need to see how much Bush is damaging us. Might it be possible to reach the approximately 33% of people who still support Bush with the message that he is weakening America? I hope so. I know his approval rating is very low right now, but it amazes me that a third of Americans still support him, despite all that's happened. What would Bush have to do to lose those people? Cancel the Superbowl?

Most of the 33% stick with Dubya because they think the alternative is worse. The Dems will peel away more of Bush's support when they form a coherent plan of their own for Iraq and other issues. That will take time.
