George W. Bush is far and away The Worst President in the History of the United States of America. A total, complete, miserable failure.
I honestly don't see, even if he tried, how he could have been a worse president. Everything that man did turned to sh*t. He has set the GOP back 50 years, McCain and his GOP colleagues will lose in a historic landslide this November, and now it'll be the Dems chance to screw it up (or make it better).
Looking back, I think we'd all agree that The Iraq Debacle destroyed his presidency. And that the housing crash took him to a whole different level.
HousingPANIC would also like to salute the 62,040,610 suckers who voted for Bush in 2004. Sure, Kerry was a mediocre candidate. Sure, you hate those fags. Sure, Osama is a scary dude. But good god, how could you have been so reckless with your vote? How could you have been taken for such a fool?
84%. That's an amazing number. As a nation, I think we're close to hitting bottom. After all there's only 16 points left to go.
Say It Ain't So
President Bush's approval rating has dipped since the May '08 Wash Post/ABC survey, to 29% from 31%. Meanwhile, 68% disapprove of the job Bush is doing. National sentiment about the president's leadership is, of course, a critical variable in the WH contest for McCain, and one he can do nothing to remedy.
The poll's right track/wrong track numbers also underscore Bush's dismal job approval numbers. Just 14% of those surveyed believe the country is moving in the right direction, and 84% said it's on the wrong track. That's the most dramatic split -- the highest wrong track number -- in the 15-year history of the survey.
