    I predict that Bush will go higher in the disapproval rating.. He doesn't have a clue and as a fellow Texan, I am embarrased....

    "fellow Texan"? GWB is a yankee transplant. All hat, no cattle.

    You know he's unpopular when even Texans won't claim him.

    His legacy is huge. Certainly.

    He is also the most polled and the most scrutinized. Look for most presidents to hit low numbers toward the end of 8 year terms from now on.

    GWB is not as unpopular as these polls make him out to be.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict he won't win a 3rd term...[​IMG]

    But, if you'd listened to a few posters, that wouldn't be a problem for him since he was just going to declare martial law and stay on indefinitely...[​IMG]

    He is absolutely the most unpopular in the last 72 months.

    The man couldn't lead a four car funeral.

    There is a reason he lost to Al Gore by 545,000 votes (that we know of). I can think of no better place for his library than SMU; maybe Bill Clements can be the curator.

    Well, his term isn't over yet and there is still a chance that there will be a huge upturn in his popularity when his revolutionary mass transit plan is unveiled later this year. Here's a preview.

    I have a question:

    How close to the highest disaproval of Congress?

    I know that the approval rate of Congress is also very low.

    IF it is also a record, might that not be as much a commentary on the way Americans view our government right now as much as it does how we view the president? Just asking the question.

    Also, Al Gore didn't beat GWB. No offense, but I thought you knew that the American people do not vote directly for President. Perhaps this point missed you somehow.

    Has Congress EVER had a good approval rating? I mean seriously, it doesn't even matter which party has the majority. Hating on Congress is ALWAYS routine and normal.

    I'd vote for him again over Kerry.

    So, Democrats, nominate someone better. Please.

    I just don't see that happening. I hope McCain signs up a very good Veep.

    Seriously, I think if you trotted out Algore or Kerry out there again, Bush would win again. Nominate someone better. (FYI you won't this year)

    Bush has the distinction of polarizing the lefties for his foreign aggression as they see it, AND pissing off the fiscal conservatives in his own party. It takes a truly spectacularly bad politician to piss off everyone. Usually just one side hates you, but he kicked it up a notch.

    GWB's main fault is a lack of understanding of american history and war, more specifically how citizens react to war in a democratic nation. One of his main arguments for creating a democracy in Iraq was that Iraq would be peaceful because people in a democracy have no stomach for war, well duh, that theory not holds true in the middle east , but in America, also. Every war America has fought, the public support was waning at the end, the Civil war, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc.

    Wait until history gets a good look at the sleaze of this Presidency as the bits of information that were not purposefully destroyed slowly seep out. I guess it would be in poor taste to mention the successful obstruction of Justice by Bush, Cheney and Scooter....

    What's hilarious about this thread though is the silly partisans actually trying to blame... the media... even now for "excessive polling" for Bush's approval ratings.

    In this instance Bush's approval ratings actually are slightly higher than his actual performance in office has been....

    Yeah, but he is building a giant wall between the U.S. and Mexico, you have to give him all the credit for that.
