Bush's Disapproval Rating



Dear editor,

As the Michael Moore movie Fahrenheit 9/11 continues to gain attention, money, and controversy ["The Screed We Need," June 25], I can't help but wonder why critics of the film (such as the right-wing group Move America Forward) deem it "anti-American." The latest polls reveal that the majority of Americans now believe that going to war with Iraq was a mistake and it has not made the U.S. any safer from terrorism. Additionally, most Americans disapprove of President Bush's job performance. So logically, Moore's basic themes of his movie (Bush's failings, the Iraq blunder, and so on) reflect the opinions of most Americans.

Therefore, wouldn't that make prowar advocates "anti-American," as well as the Bush administration and its supporters?

Think about it.
