Bush Worst President in US History

 

According to a new CNN/Opinion Research Corp poll over 70% of the American public now disapprove of George W Bush's handling of the presidency.

The poll makes Mr Bush officially the most unpopular President in US history after beating Truman who polled a miserable 67% disapproval in January 1952.

Even President Nixon prior to his resignation managed to poll a disapproval rating of 66%.The poll also showed that 68% of Americans oppose the war in Iraq and 71% disapproval of Mr Bush as President.

And the damn thing is, with his level of arrogance - he's more than likely PROUD OF IT !!
 
  by: Discarded Vet   05/02/2008 06:39 PM     
  Do you think he cares?  
 
He has his retirement all taken care of... on the blood that he shed getting oil out of Iraq.

After hearing news about this he probably went and cried a bit to daddy Bush sucking his thumb. But daddy probably helped him feel better letting him know that he did a good job at making his family and all his buddies wealthier.

Cheney would just say, "SO?!" These fascist pigs don't give a damn about the American people - unless you are a rich Christian oil baron.

  My question is ...  
 
Where's Bush going to live after he leaves office? People thought OJ Simpson was harassed after being exonerated, just wait until W. is a civilian again!

Warren G. Harding is stoked to finally have someone take his spot at the bottom.

Secret service will still protect Bush after he is ousted from the White house.
Personally, I hope terrorists make the mistake of kidnapping him in the hopes that we may pay some kind of ransom or free their kind from prisons all over the world. That way we can all laugh and say "So what, kill him!"

If terrorists kidnapped Dubya I’m sure the first thing they would ask for is that we make him President again. We would all be doomed.

  See, I told you so  
 
I've been saying this since before he was elected - not popularly, I might add - the first time. Congratulations on *FINALLY* waking up, sheeple. Good for you, I guess.

Didn't he (we) buy himself a bunch of land in South America or Mexico or something?

  To Clarify  
 
Most of the SN community seems to have a decent mind about them, so I don't mean "you" specifically. I meant to address the general population of former Bush advocates. Sorry!
 
  by: nofattieskthx   05/02/2008 11:09 PM     
  @nofattieskthx  
 
I don't think it's just the SN community with a good head about them(albeit a bit sentimental at times), however it seems the internet at large seems to be coming to a general consensus on the Bush administration.

Ron Paul's success is a testament to the power of the internet to inform people.

Generally I find when I speak to people about political matters, geekier(prone to internet) people seem to be far more informed about the world about them, anti-big-governmen(big brother?)... 'conspiracy theorists' if you will.

While those who rely on TV news or just the evening sports show are generally ones who support mainstream politics, and are also the ones who buoy the term 'conspiracy theorists' (AKA government fact checkers).

internet ftw!!!

+1 for internet.
I'm just happy it's not a dump truck.

  Ok.. my question is...  
 
To the 30% who still approve him:

WHY?

  @vash the stampede  
 
"Ok.. my question is...
To the 30% who still approve him:

WHY?"

easy, two MAIN reasons...

1. "just because" he's president... you know like britney spears, who said "i think we should turst our president in every decision"... also because no small portion of americans have been brainwashed to believe that its the patriotic thing to do. there are MANY americans hthat do this... i've meet one personally, when i was in NC almost 3 years ago, my ex-fiance's step-father was an american army brat turned american soldier... before going there i was littteraly told not to mention bush or politics when i was there, as he was a bush support then, seemingly for no other reason than bush was the president.


2. racism... NEVER underestimate the power of racism, before they closed the yahoo chat rooms i used to frequent the religous and political rooms... and let me tell you there was never any shortage of people calling for the deaths of the "Deleted"... this is the litteral extent of how a significant portion of america (keeping in mind that even 5-10% would be a significant number of americas; it would equate to 15-35 million) view muslims and the islamic world... hop in a time machine jump back 200-250 years and the arabs are the new blacks of and to america. similarly there is also no shortage of soldiers with this viewpoint. some videos are one the internet of soldier downtalking arabs and islam in general, then in the next second/minute blows a bunch of them up.

but i do not make it because i am not American.

  No surprises here after what he has done.  
 
The question is what kind of president will the next one be? Will the US electorate be able to make any difference?

All three possible candidates are from a similar get rich quick mould. One (McCain) is offering more of the same.

The American people still do not have a saviour from the manipulators of their politics.

It also means more misery for the rest of the world.

As for Bush he has made his fortune and his pension is assured. He has not cared for public opinion while in office and I suspect he will not care even now.

@HAVOC666

Your point 2 is very true. You are not alone in that experience.

  Just these two blunders say it all...

@ vizhatlan

It's the WORLD Wide Web ..... POST! :)

@ vash

I can't account for the why of 30% except for those I know - ie: MANY of my own extended family. They revoted (and support still) for Bush based one ONE fact - he was against abortion. ALl the other crap that Bush was doing already by 2004 simply DID NOT MATTER!

I know ....... friggen sad.

May I suggest Guantanamo. Or letting the world court find him a nice home and maybe a noose for war crimes. After a fair trial without torture, that is. Unlike what he has done to those in Guantanemo, and those that have been "renditioned".

  Shame  
 
It's taken this long really. If the US population hadn't kept voting this man in, there would be a lot more people alive today. I refer to good people, from a number of different countries, not just the US.

Well, first of all, Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 -- if we just went by the popular vote, he'd never have taken office in the first place. Even then, there were allegations of voter tampering in Florida, and it was quite convenient that Katherine Harris, a Bush campaign senior official, was also in charge of the Florida recounts.

Secondly, there were widespread allegations of election fraud in Bush's second victory, in 2004, and lawsuits stemming from those allegations that remain in court to this day.

Here's a BBC television report on election tampering in 2000: http://video.google.com/...

And here's an article on the 2004 irregularities: http://www.rollingstone.com/...

I'm well aware of the allegations of vote tampering but surely there are independent people in the US that monitor this type of thing? I think if there were any evidence we would probably have seen much more fuss kicked up over it by now.

Yeah, that is pretty sad, it just brings tears to my eyes to hear it.
Wait, those aren't tears, they're urges to smack these religious retards in the face with a frying pan.
No offense to your extended relatives. (unless you hate 'em too :p)

@ Maxx20

Those "independants" are surely bought and paid for. There is no such thing as an honest vote in Amercia any longer. Why do you think all the uproar when grops wanted Diebold machines investigated, and Diebold went on fire with NO !!

@ slientrage

Well, I wished them Merry X-Mas two years ago. Haven't spoke since. When religion dictates, not advises, how one raises their family ...... it's not my family.
 
  by: Discarded Vet   05/04/2008 04:14 PM     
  Correction  
 
Arg, danged keyboard

"....uproar when grops wanted ...."
should read:
"....uproar when groups wanted ...."

Thought I should correct that, since there are so many acronyms in politics.

not to mention the few thousand votes that mistakenly went to bush via the butterfly ballot.

@maxx20

"I'm well aware of the allegations of vote tampering but surely there are independent people in the US that monitor this type of thing? I think if there were any evidence we would probably have seen much more fuss kicked up over it by now."

actually thats the problem there is no way to prove it other than logically, there is no papertrail on e-voting. but when thousands more "people" vote than were even at the polling station to be able to vote, logically something is skew.

and it was either an 9/11 sized coincidence (if you believe the palnes brought down the tower, though by no logical reason could they have... example of an impossible "coincidence") or the election was rife with conspiracy even before the first vote was cast.

and there are independant people that monitor this... such as those that made the documentary "votersgate"... but people people ignore "crazy" things like that, just look at all the independant people that investigate 9/11 and how quickly they are dismissed... most american would rather be ignorant about their government than know how deep the corruption runs within it, and to what lengths they would go to accomplish their agenda.

  He doesn't hold a candle to  
 
Jimmy Carter, as far as being on the "inept, useless, counterproductive" list is concerned. George Bush (pick one) has done more good, and less harm in any of a few minutes of his presidency than Jimmy Carter did in all of his entire single term.

  Here is my question...  
 
Why did we try to impeach President Bill Clintion for getting a BJ and trying to keep it from his wife. The highest his disaproval rating Clinton had was in the mid 40 percentile range.(http://www.pollingreport.com/...

Yet here we have a president (I will nto capitolize it since he doesnt deserve an uppercase P) whom 70% of the country thinks is a bad leader and yet there is no national media frenzy to impeach this a--hole.

Maybe FOX?
