G.W. Bush approval rating average was 37% in second term

Just a reminder. President Bush’s (43) approval average during his second term was 37 percent, reaching a low point of 25 percent sometime during the fall of 2008, right around election time. The main stream press had totally and completely bought into the Bush Derangement Syndrome by mid-2006 when his approval rating was around 40 percent. The man was blamed for everything.

At what point does the main stream media start giving President Obama a hassle about his approval rating? Buried deep in an AP story from Oct. 9, we learn Obama’s approval rating is now at 37 percent. The same as Bush’s second term average.

Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.

My question in the second paragraph is rhetoric, because we all know the main stream media will hold the water for this president and avoid comparing approval numbers to Bush 43 at all cost. That would be a fireable offense for certain.

They are not the ‘Bush tax cuts’ anymore

I agree with AJ Strata at The Strata-Sphere. Why the heck are we even referring to the “Bush tax cuts?” Sure, we can do that when referring to what happened after the tax cuts in 2001 and 2003, but at this point – eight to 10 years later – any change to the tax code during the lame-duck session or with the new Congress should be referred to as the Obama Tax Increases.

The Gulf oil spill: It’s Bush’s fault … continuuuuued

The Sunday Morning talk shows were a blame game fest and frankly at this point it’s become obnoxious. Don’t you think. But the facts are simple … someone should tell these clowns Bush is not in charge of the clean-up … Obama is. He said so. Read more

The reasons for America’s cynicism – Bush’s fault again, of course

I rarely point to other posts without at least trying to add an original thought. But this most recent post by AP at Hotair is so well thought through and so well sourced that I do not really need not care to add anything. Read more

Miss me yet? The United States Constitution

I was SO thinking about this exact idea last night when I went to bed. The “Miss me yet?” billboard gave me a slight chuckle, but for conservatives and libertarians, President George W. Bush is not exactly who – or what – they are missing. I refer you to our Founding Fathers…

Miss me yet? From UPDATE: Video

President Bush has remained characteristically quiet during President Obama’s first term. It used to be the norm and is demonstrative of his class. This despite the constant whacks the young President has been taking at his predecessor, apparently in the name of deflecting criticism and bolstering his falling poll numbers. Read more

Don’t expect the media to be unbiased

On O’Rielly’s program the other day, Bernard Goldberg reminded us that Accuracy in Media reported – with little fan-fair years ago – that CBS producer Mary Mapes knew President Bush (43) had volunteered to go to Vietnam with his Texas Air Guard unit, a fact Mapes and Dan Rather left completely out of the story in the fall of 2004.

Remember the Cheney secret meetings with energy executives?

Gosh, that was terrible. A sitting vice president – with close ties to the oil community – having the gaul to meet with oil and other energy executives in private to discuss the energy crisis. Democrats often pointed to Vice President Cheney’s meetings as part of the problem, promising transparency in the future. Well as it turns out, not so much.
