So what's the spanish word for "uniter"?

Nice to see that W has jumped from the fryingpan of DC investigations and indictments into the fire of Latin American displeasure with his policies.

Thousands Protest Bush's Policies at Trade Summit
By Edwin Chen and Patrick McDonnell, Times Staff Writers

MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina -- A hemispheric summit meant to help create jobs and spread democracy throughout the region opened today with large-scale anti-U.S. demonstrations and deep divisions among participating nations about the Bush administration's expanded free-trade agenda.

Tens of thousands of protesters marched the streets of this seaside resort calling for Bush to be expelled from the country and later cheered when Venezuela President Hugo Chavez labeled Washington's free-trade program dead and buried.

Yep, the great uniter strikes again. Not only are Latin Americans united in their hatred of Bush, more and more they are also united with their yankee bretheren:
Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. President George W. Bush's approval rating dropped to its lowest level ever, according to an Associated Press/Ipsos poll conducted after a key White house aide was indicted and another withdrew as Supreme Court nominee.

Only 37 percent of Americans surveyed Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 said they approved of the way Bush is handling his job as president, according to a summary of results published on the Ipsos Web site. That's down from 39 percent at the beginning of October and the lowest since the AP/Ipsos poll was first taken in Dec. 2003.

Kinda makes you proud to be an American don't it?
