Neither Bush nor Rove has seemed to get the message, the Republicans say. Democrats have kept up the attack. “The 2006 midterm elections will be our next opportunity to change the environment of corruption and incompetence in Washington,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Thursday in a fundraising letter to Democrats. Reid has called for Rove’s resignation and a “thorough house cleaning” at the White House. In the AP-Ipsos poll, nearly one in five Republicans disapproved of Bush’s handling of his job, compared with nearly nine in 10 Democrats. Nearly seven in 10 independents disapproved. Four in five Republicans still back the president. “I think he’s done a wonderful job,” said Gloria Bloecher, a Republican from Sherman, Texas. “He’s done wonderful things for the economy. He rescued people who needed help in Iraq – it was the Christian thing to do. I still trust his people and the people he picks for the Supreme Court.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

He cited “the economy, going to war in Iraq for no reason, the way we can get to the tsunami victims before Katrina victims – the whole business.” A year after his re-election, Bush’s second term has been marred by rising U.S. casualties in Iraq, a failed attempt to restructure Social Security, Hurricane Katrina missteps, rising fuel costs and his forced withdrawal of the Supreme Court nomination of Harriet Miers. In a case involving the public naming of a covert CIA operative married to an Iraq war critic, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former aide, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, pleaded not guilty on Thursday in federal court to charges of obstruction of justice, perjury and lying to investigators. The case casts a continuing cloud over Cheney and keeps Bush’s closest adviser, Karl Rove, in legal jeopardy. Republicans are starting to worry about the 2006 elections and hope Bush can reverse his slide. Several senior Republicans who are close to the White House and Rove say there has been a lot of talk inside and outside the White House about the need for him to leave, but they’re picking up no indication from him or his associates that it’s going to happen – at least anytime soon. WASHINGTON – President George W. Bush’s public support has eroded to its lowest level yet, with the Iraq war dragging on, a top White House aide facing felony charges and the White House rushing to replace a failed Supreme Court nominee. Concerned that the president has lost his footing, some Republicans have suggested Bush should shake up his staff. A new AP-Ipsos poll found the president’s approval rating was at 37 percent, compared with 39 percent a month ago. About 59 percent of those surveyed said they disapproved. The intensity of disapproval is the strongest to date, with 42 percent now saying they “strongly disapprove” of how Bush is handling his job – twice as many as the 20 percent who said they “strongly approve.”

North Korean supporters sing ahead of the free skating pair, figure skating final in the Gangneung Ice Arena at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue)PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — To pour on the charm at the Pyeongchang Olympics, North Korea has turned to ball-gown clad singers, pompom-waving cheerleaders and two of its most influential women. And the media, the South Korean public and the Olympic audience worldwide seem to be thoroughly enjoying the spectacle.But should they be?ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Some went so far as to film cheerleaders’ rooms from outside their windows, the report said. TV Chosun, voyeuristically shooting through room windows, claimed an exclusive of the North Korean cheerleaders watching South Korean TV shows. The Yonhap News agency published photos of cheerleaders inside a women’s restroom washing their hands and waiting in line outside toilets.North Korea has sent women south to win hearts and minds before.The idea dates back to Kim Jong Il, the current leader’s father, who dispatched:— a 288-member cheering squad to South Korea for the Busan Asian Games in 2002;—306 women to Daegu for the 2003 Universiade;— a 125-member squad for the Incheon Asian Athletics Championships in 2005.Kim Jong Un’s wife is an alumnus of the cheering squads. She went to the Incheon event.The squads are usually made up of young women, often students or government workers from Pyongyang, selected for their looks, musical skills and family standing.At their first appearance at a competition, an ice hockey game featuring the joint North-South women’s team, they started off with a popular North Korean song called “Happy to Meet You.”That had been a matter of concern.

That would have clearly run afoul of organizers’ expectations. Officials quickly denied the rumors, though it remains unclear who the mystery man was intended to be.“Because the cheerleaders and the performance squads are Koreans like us, it’s natural to have a good feeling toward them,” said Shin In-kyun, president of the Korea Defense Network, a nonpartisan group of defense experts. “But we should not forget the intention of the brutal North Korean regime that’s hidden behind it.”“Right now, it seems we are distracted,” he said. “North Korea’s operation is working.” Wozniacki irate over opponent’s ‘unfair’ grunting in Qatar win Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises The sister’s arrival generated a good deal of serious reporting, juxtaposed with the presence of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife. But she got a full dose of the tabloid treatment from the moment she arrived.There were some extremely unlikely comparisons to Ivanka Trump, who is expected to attend the Games’ closing ceremony. South Korea’s TV Chosun television network put together a separate report to analyze her fashion and appearance and pointed out her freckles and makeup. One analyst even speculated she might be pregnant.The reporting was “a personal insult and diplomatic mistake,” the Citizens’ Coalition for Democratic Media, a media watchdog, said in a report.It was hardly the exception.South Korean broadcasters focused on the legs of the North Korean cheerleaders to highlight their bodies, while they tended to show the heads and chests of North Korean men on the day of their arrival in the South, while images of the cheerleaders’ black ankle boots and bare calves were repeated frequently.ADVERTISEMENT 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting AFP official booed out of forum MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Despite the focus on campy weirdness and implications of salaciousness, the North’s feminine touch in Pyeongchang is a potent — and deliberately manipulative — political statement.
