That Liberal Media

From CNN:

A majority of Americans see improving military security as President Bush's only major first term achievement, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Tuesday.
...
Fifty-one percent of respondents said Bush's policies will move the country in the right direction.
...
Large majorities think Bush did not improve health care, Medicare, Social Security or the environment in his first term.
...
Fifty-three percent said they believe the country will be better off in four years than it is now, 7 points higher than in a January 2001 poll. Those who believe the country will be worse off remained at 42 percent.
...
But only four in 10 said Bush would strengthen Social Security, and only about a quarter said he would reduce the federal deficit.

The headline of the article? "Americans Upbeat About Four More Years"

In CNN land if 51 percent think Bush's policies will move the country in the right direction then, by God, Americans are upbeat.
