It is a cold and lonely moment in the presidency of George W. Bush, and winter hasn't even officially begun yet. His standing in the polls is at an all-time low and Americans give plenty of reasons for their dissatisfaction: a grinding war, huge deficits, White House scandal, and swooning confidence in the president's integrity and effectiveness.

In another time, a president might cut taxes and rev up spending for a bump in the polls, but George Bush has already done both, big-time. Now, urgent issues face the nation, at the same time that a presidency, at least for now, seems to have stalled.

Hear about three more years of George W. Bush, and what they mean for the country at a moment of great challenge.
