President George W. Bush (below left) and Michael Wallace, President
of Constellation Energy's Generation Group, tour the Turbine Room of
the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power plant in Lusby, Maryland, June 22, 2005.
President Bush tempered his rosy message on the U.S. economy on June 22,
acknowledging the job worries of working families as part of a strategic shift
to bolster his standing in the polls.
The shift was part of a new
White House push to answer
Americans' views, as cited in
polls, that the president is out
of touch with their everyday
concerns, whether on the
economy or the Iraq war.
Bush's job-approval ratings
have slumped to the lowest
levels of his presidency.
