    no surprise. bush is the worst president in history and will be the downfall of America. dont mean to sound negative but it will be years because a even a perfect president can fix all the wrongs and mistakes bush made while in office (which means it wont happen).

    He still doesn't have the lowest approval rating though. Hal Truman and Rich Nixon still were still less approved of. But we have seven more month, so cross your fingers.

    Polls don't constitute elections.

    Well, he has definitely made a name for himself as the worst president in history. I'm sure that will make the history books! I don't think he could add together 2+2 without an advisor and even with an advisor he would probably have the wrong answer. The next election cannot come soon enough!

    President Bush's legacy rests with future events. The future will judge us all.

    Hey munchingzombie: it's Harry Truman dude.

    I think that I can speak with some authority on the subject of Iraq at least. After 9/11 my love for my country just went through the roof, I had just graduated from West Point and was all gung-ho to go after the "bad guys". Well after lots of schooling I finally got my orders to deploy to Iraq. I was there for 32 days got hit with an IED lost a leg, have permanent damage to my eye ear and brain. That is what President Bush's insane invasion has cost just one soldier. Afghanistan yes, get Bin Laden and those fuckers but shit we should have stayed the hell out of Iraq.
    That's just Iraq, what about gas prices, food prices (a gallon of milk today $5.39) and on and on. I am surprised that the moron in the White House's APPROVAL rating is 30%!!!! Are we Americans that pussy whipped that 30% actually support this clown!!!
    Sorry to go off like that I have lost my military bearing, and a lot of other stuff to.
    God Bless America but damn Bush to hell!!!

    Keep in mind that a lot of people get their news only from Fox news and AM radio. Through a filter like that it's easy to believe that Bush is practically perfect and all that's wrong with the world is because of libruls, Demoncrats, gays and foreigners.

    McCain's on deck to become Bush's 3rd term and people are eating it up!

    George W. Bush staked his presidency on the Iraq War. Well so far the gamble has not turned out well. The reasons for going into Iraq were suspect, and the planning for the post-invasion was shockingly bad.

    How will George W. Bush be remembered? It is hard to say since the impact of events sometimes takes decades to take effect. We are too close to them right now. Who knows maybe a new Iraq will eventually emerge with a fledgling democracy that slowly spreads to the rest of the Middle East. I personally doubt it, but it could happen.

    In 1914 many people in Great Britain were supporting the government's decision to support "poor little Belgium" by declaring war on Germany and Austria-Hungary. Some historians wonder (and I agree) whether getting involved in the First World War was really in the British Empire's best interests. It certainly had a major role to play in the Empire's eventual demise.

    Colbert Nation, If you knew anything at all about media bias, you would see that CNN and CBS compete for the top spot of America's most biased mainstream national news networks.

    I suggest you read "Bias" by former CBS correspondant Bernard Goldberg. That ought to enlighten you.

    To all a question; what modern president had the highest approval rating of any president in history since polls have been used?

    The future sure will judge this administration !!! I believe it will be more like what bushes first Head of the DEPT of JUSTICE said when he invited to discuss torture with the many of bushes top cabinet leaders. "HISTORY WILL NOT JUDGE THIS VERY KINDLY" More and more each week has come out about what this administration has been involved in. the bushies are franticly making use of lawyers to avoid requests for information on many issues that constitute illegal use of power. When the bushies are no longer in power they won't be able to stop the flow of the truth, so I doubt sincerely that there will be many bright spots shining from his administration

    That book has been debunked by numerous critics. Here's just one example:

    http://americancrackpot.blogspot.com/2004/12/goldberg-unwittingly-undermines.html

    The vast majority of newspaper publishers voted for Bush in 2000 and reporters voted for him 2 to 1, according to a poll by Editor and Publisher.

    The idea that the media are generally dominated by liberals is ridiculous.

    I had heard this... glad Caslon put it online here.

    He deserves every bit of it. I hope it sticks in the history books as well.

    Why, G. W. Bush has the highest approval rating. Right after 9/11 we had a collective hard on for the man. But, we could of had a house plant for a president and it would have had great ratings after that event.

    You know,

    All I hear is a problem with no solution being presented. Whats the more amiable solution so that everyone in the US gets their needs and wants filled?

    Presidents don't vote for themselves so why are we not working on other ways of expressing our ideas through more forcefull actions?

    You don't like the price of gas? You don't like your subprime home loan? You're stuck in your 9-5 job at the choke and puke?

    DO SOMETHING!

    Social programs don't cover voter registration.. you still need to get off your ass and vote.

    This is getting to be an old hat topic. Tired...very tired people.
