"Bush's Final Approval Rating: 22 Percent", NY Times CBS poll


I am wondering who the heck these 22 percent are? Well, there's my Republican mom and dad, but I think even they have gotten tired of W...........

Ah, no matter what, Gary... I am glad W was my president on 9/11 and the days following. THIS is what I will be grateful for today.

We watched the concert at the Lincoln Memorial yesterday on my laptop. Spencer was really angry that we were in front of the computer and not getting his kibble dinner.

I'm thinking the US self hatred and vilification of its leaders is a bad trend which needs to stop. This sentiment goes back to Lyndon Johnson. Why does each side feel the need to haul in special councils and prosecute the other? Have we been led by criminals these past 50 years? We "The People" elected these politicians, so are we not getting the government that we deserve?

As I type this comment Bush has only 25 hours left in office. I hope these 25 hours go by fast and he can't screw anything else up.

There's also Elisabeth Hassleback on The View . . .

That 22 percent is pretty much all from Utah and Idaho. My parents still think that the sun rises and sets with GWB...scary, I know!

I do not know who anon. is, but the fact of the matter is that if we have a leader who has made mistakes or done a bad job or has been reckless, then we would be DISHONEST if we did not recognize that behavior for what is: letting the American people down.

Sounds like it's time to celebrate...inaugural style!

That's exactly right, Gary.

Doesn't Elizabeth Hasslebeck from the View have to step down now, too??? Please???

It's always good when the old politicians go away and the newer ones step in. I'm an optimist, so I always think the new ones will do a better job. In hindsight, it's rarely true.

On the one hand, you figure that a stuffed poodle could take office and things would get better, on the other hand, things can ALWAYS get worse. But I bet things get better :)

I hope they get better Gary for the stuffed poodles, and the rest of us too. I liked it better when the economy was growing so fast we were running out of workers.

Considering the percentage of the country who are billionaires and multi-millionaires, that still leaves a puzzling, say, 17% or so. All I can figure is they have never read the Constitution, have no clue when they're being lied to, and wouldn't recognize a true civil servant if it bit them in the you-know-where. I voted against GWB not once, but twice, and proudly both times. I had lived in Texas during his reign as Gov there and knew what he stood for. (crickets)

I am so thankful that we will now have a true Statesman, with great intellect and heart to fill the office of President. I was not on the Obama bandwagon until late in the game, but the first time I heard him speak I knew he was the one. I hadn't heard that level of sincerity from a candidate in I cannot tell you how long. I am so looking forward to getting this country back on track.

Good bye George. Please tell Jeb not to bother. This country couldn't survive another Bush reign.

as my bumper sticker has read for four years now... 01/20/2009 : the end of an ERROR

I think the 22% are those who are either too sheltered to have been exposed to the news, the stock market, the banking and finance industry, the auto industry, or the unemployment crisis. They are those few who do not read about such trivial things such as the national debt clock needing to have another digit added to it to accommodate the ever growing deficit.
If you want to know who it is that supports GW, I highly recommend watching Red State Road Trip

I think some of the 22% are people with Department of Defense contracts. But that doesn't account for all of them.

Miss Heather said...

I'm pretty sure the entire 22% live in Utah, the #1 Bush Supporting State!! :) Thankfully, I'm NOT part of that 22%... and tomorrow is going to be a great day!
