"winter of our discontent"
More and more people, particularly Republicans, disapprove of President Bush's performance, question his character and no longer consider him a strong leader against terrorism, according to an AP-Ipsos poll documenting one of the bleakest points of his presidency.

"Obviously, it's the winter of our discontent," said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.
