George W. Bush has the approval of only roughly one in three Americans
according to most polls with two out of three disapproving of his
performance as President. Across the board, Americans reject everything
from Bush's handling of the war in Iraq and fighting terrorism to his
handling of the economy, education, the environment and health care. Americans United for Change, along with a number of allies, has launched the "Bush Legacy Project."
The project's goal is three-fold:
* Continually remind American voters why they have lost faith in President Bush and his agenda.
* To tie Bush and his agenda directly to the conservative brand and its followers.
* To highlight how Bush's conservative economic, social and foreign policy agenda has failed -- to shift the center of the political debate away from the conservative frame by demonstrating the failure of Bush's policies.
Bush Legacy Project, therefore, will be a critical element in the
ongoing effort to redefine American political values and to create an
enduring progressive majority in America. About Americans United for Change Americans
United For Change is a powerful movement bringing together independent
voices for new policy priorities and real leadership - to focus our
elected officials on the issues that really matter to the lives of
everyday Americans and get America moving in the right direction again
