America Likes George W. Bush More Than Barack Obama

| Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

george-bush-has-higher-job-approval-ratings-than-barack-obama.jpg

Nope, not a joke. We're quite serious actually.

According to the Gallup Poll, George W. Bush’s job approval rating is higher than that of our current leader, President Barack Obama.

That Gallup poll has just satisfied started asking Americans to retrospectively rate Bush's job performance from when he was in charge. Astoundingly, when the numbers came in for his job approval ratings, he scored an impressive 47% - a point higher than Barack's rating in the same week.

Now, a point may not seem like a lot, but we think it speaks volumes, considering that when he was in office, George once landed in the 25% range and never got anything close that number before Hurricane Katrina.

We could blame this all on the positive media coverage he is getting in conjunction with his new book, but if we were the President, we'd start thinking about ways to improve that number and get back on top.

    THAT'S A BIG FAT LIE (It's even fatter than Okra Panfry's ASS)!



  2. 2

    people are a bunch of overly confident morons who can not ever, ever, ever admit they're wrong. Bush destroyed the country, gave 1 trillion dollars to the rich, and the morons keep supporting republicans. u know what? people deserve to go so down on business to the point the whole country is literally hungry, maybe then they'll wake up.



  3. 3

    Americans are stupid. 8 years of hell under Bush/Cheney cabal and people don't remember??? So shameful.



  4. 4

    yeah, where's that "change" he kept talking about? Not to mention the fact, he has done NOTHING to help the gay community!!

  5. buck says – reply to this

    American's are finally realizing that we got duped by the media not only during the Bush years but also in electing Obama. Lets just hope we get out of the next 2 years without too much more damage.



  6. 6

    No surprises with this poll . These are the same people that voted Bush in office TWICE, and then expected Obama, in 2 years, to clean up the mess Bush made in 8. Oh, how soon people forget.



  7. 7

    Why does this surprise ANYONE. The majority of Americans are retarded as fuck. OF COURSE they love G W Bush, the king of all idiots. You get what you deserve America, you stupid, stupid twats.



  8. 8

    Whether or not you like George Bush is irrelevant now. This just proves how big of a joke Obama is. He likes to talk a big game but even the right wing is turning on him.



  9. 9

    Sorry i meant left wing.



  10. 10

    Obama is going to be so much worse for this country than George Bush, and people are realizing the mistake in voting him into office. No surprise here.



  11. 11

    Why are you all supriosed. Obama got elected cause of the media. the only thing he can do is read a teleprompter and is a good motivational preacher. He never ran a business,a city, a state. All is friends are anti USA or racist. Imagine what wee would know if the media really did thier job. If he waa a whit e man, he never would of been elected with all his associations and lack of experience. They beat the shit out of Bush and made him seem completely dumb and not just DUMB, and made Obama a god. As a black person, I am appauled how the media and demorats used my race. Obama is a white guy with a tan. He was raised by a white mom, then white grandparets. Went to all white schools, paid by all rich white men. The only thing black about him, is his daddy left him too. both parties suck and are in the tank with each other. they dont care about us. I am not a republican or a democrat..I am an reasonable american….. you bunch of bustas!



  12. 12

    Face it, Obama is a weak, ineffectual useless (possibly racist) idiot. I believed in him and hoped he would at least do a few positive things. I wasnt expecting miracles or that he would turn the economy around mind you. But even on DADT and gay marraige he has completely thrown gay Americans under the bus.



  13. 13

    Re: buck – @ 5 - hey dude - as much as I'd like to agree with you, American's haven't realized anything. The comments already made on this page reflect it.
    Re: lacey1 – I don't know many people who voted for Bush and then voted for Obama. Obama got into office because many people that never voted a day in their lives for even their state representatives, voted for Obama (when they often shared views with McCain).
    Re: misskittygalore – nobody said they loved Bush, they just like him more than Obama…….LOL, and you call American's stupid/retarded……..feeling down about yourself today, eh?



  14. 14

    Unfortunately President Barack Obama has been & is a real disappointment to all of us who supported him & around the world were happy that he was elected.
    He ran for election on certain beliefs & policies then he changed his policies as he has governed.
    President Obama you need to get some balls - as rude as that statement is.
    I really am still hoping he will wake-up & become himself again - SOON!



  15. 15

    Re: nicky45 – How is it irrelevant when he's the one who ruined the U.S economy in the first place. Did people actually expect that Obama would fix George Bush mess in 2 yrs? Didn't think it was possible for people to be that delusional.



  16. 16

    Obviously they didn't poll a lot of people on this website. Haha. Who knows who they poll. The honest fact is that most presidents in office see a low approval rating, could you imagine if McCain and Palin were in office? Come on. What happened to the Country now happened when Clinton and the 1st Bush were president. It takes years for an economy to faulter and Obama has only had what 2 years in office now? Give it a break this is just how it goes and this poll was probably conducted by republicans looking to win back the office in 2012. Besides from all the horrible stuff going on I don't think he is doing that bad of a job and I like some of the changes he has made. You can't agree with everything and you have to realize he needs to be diplomatic to help keep order in the House and Senate. Also, what about the good he has done? That never get's press and it doesn't help that people like you push DADT all the time it will take time to fix that mess that started when CLINTON was in office. Thought I would elaborate on that some more. Sheesh.



  17. 17

    I have been wondering where Obama's change really is. It doesn't mean that I like Bush more or anything - it just makes me think that maybe the people polled felt as if they were choosing "the lesser of two evils." So, maybe they're not Bush lovers, but guess it was better than they have now. idk - it sure is interesting.



  18. 18

    Re: nicky45 – the people that voted for and like obama will always play the blame game…..it's their way of life……"it's not my fault I can't pay my bills, i can't get a job (but I refuse to learn english and/or speak it properly)"

    Hi Perez, long time reader, first time commenter. I can't even tell you how many obnoxious liberal hipsters have turned on Obama in the last year. Seriously people grow up.

    He has TWO wars, the greatest economic recession of our lifetime, and 8 years of Bush to cleanup. Oh yeah, and he's faced more resistance and constant fillerbustering from the minority party than any president in modern times. So far he's withdrawn troops from Iraq on time (no big deal right?) and passed historic healthcare legislation (yes, historic).

    If you thought all your problems would be solved in two years then you need to grow up and start living in the real world. Give the man a chance, do you not remember what it was like living under Bush?



  21. 21

    Of course! America prefers the White guy that nearly destroyed the country than the Black guy that's trying to help it recover.



  22. 22

    Re: alexie silver – I don't like either one, but at least Bush only spent 1.3 Trillion of my money and Obama spent….wait…..wait…..25 Trillion.



  23. 23

    Wow that just means a majority of Americans are overweight uneducated rednecks. Like wtf Bush DESTROYED the country and landed it into the economic failure it is in now, and yeah Obama might not be superman but at least he's trying, how many years is it going to take to clean up 8 years worth of damage? Although many people will sit here and deny it, this has A LOT to do with him being black. Times are supposed to be changing, but America won't let them. Sure re-elect another person like Bush again, let's see how many people will be suffering and how many more wars that can be started….



  24. 24

    Americans seem to have a very short memory.



  25. 25

    funny how many seem 2 4get about the debt that he left us in & a bunch of the other shit that so many complained about. But as he's not in the scene anymore, he's more likable. Same shit happened when Guilianni was mayor of NYC. He was a tyrrant but when 9/11 happened all of a sudden he became a hero, wtf? a proud American, but 2 a point, many r just f'ing backwards here. They repeat the same f'ing mistakes b/c they never learn, whatever.



  26. 26

    AMNESIA!
    Bush's approval rating was 39% when he left office. Obama's is 46% now (even with all the lies teabaggers spread about him-), Clinton's was 42% same time into his presidency and Reagan's was 41% this far into his.
    (Also according to Gallup poll)
    So whatever.



  27. 27

    Re: manymoms – for president!!! Finally, some eloquent common sense.

    Everyone complaining about this poll blames it on the white rednecks… how racist is that!! The only racism I ever see comes from the left who is supposed to be the tolerant side. As a Hispanic, the democrats offend me by always portraying minorities as dumb and unable to take care of themselves. We don't need your handouts!

    And that's the reason why Bush's approval is higher than the almighty Obama. And the Euros that feel that are superior to us and look down on us…. how are things going over in Europe with your progressive policies? That's what we're trying to avoid.



  28. 28

    Re: MJJ – No dumbass no one expected him to fix it, but he has made it worse. Bush did a poor job when will people like yourself own up to Obama being the wrong choice. My answer is never becuse a lot of liberals will never admit they are wrong.



  29. 29

    Re: JackTheRipper – That simply isn't true. Obama expanded laws against hate crimes (Matthew Shepard bill), he extended benefits for same sex federal employees, appointed more openly gay officials than any president before him, passed law to allow partners of gay hospital patients have same rights as family.
    DADT would have been repealed last Sept. if John McCain and the Republicans did not filibuster and block it!



  30. 30

    Once Obama is out of office and the new president doesnt fix the economy etc etc etc right away their approval ratings may be lower than Obama who could, like Bush, be on a speaking or book tour. It's easy to forget the screw ups of the former president when the current one isn't living up to expectations. People tend to live in the now rather than the past.



  31. 31

    Re: April 20th – So true



  32. 32

    Whats so surprising. Obama is Bush. Bush tax cuts, war in Iraq continues, patriot act renewed. Yep, exactly like Bush, except worse because he was suppose to bring "change", whereas you knew you were getting this with Bush. So yeah I have to say from what I have seen, i would rather the Bush I know, then the one who i expected change from, but also turned out to be a Bush.



  33. 33

    1.Biggest terrorist attack in this country's history,Happened under Bush.He had advanced warning of attack

    2.Biggest death toll from a natural disaster in this country's history,Happened under Bush.Like 9-11,Bush had advance warning of Katrina

    3.One of the worse economies in this country's history …Happened under Bush

    4.The United States attacking and overthrowing a government that did not attack the US,nor threatened the US…Happened under Bush

    5.The biggest deficit spender and added the most to the national debt in presidential history…Dubya Bush

    8 years in office and only created 3 million jobs,Clinton created 23 million

    What are the odds of the worse foreign policy mistake,the worse terrorist attack,one of the worse economies,the worse natural disaster by death toll and the worse US financial mismanagement all happening under 1 President ?????



  34. 34

    I cant even believe how many stupid people commented on this…..Obama was the biggest mistake in american history and it has nothing to do with race….he wants to tax the rich and give to the poor the problem with that is then the rich in turn have less jobs for americans therefore creating unemployment…..librals way of thinking does not work. Give tax cuts to the rich so they can create more jobs for americans does work, its not rocket science…exept to the people sitting on there asses collecting government benifits expecting the government to hand them everything. Bush was a good president stupid people who pay attention to the UNtruthful media will never see it though.



  35. 35

    Re: supersongbird – THANK YOU! It's very sad how many people DO NOT know this and if they did, they would have higher faith in him. What's tragic is that all the good things he has done goes unnoticed.



  36. 36

    Re: supersongbird – Those are good things, little steps. But he doesnt have to actually let the Repubs push him around…they dont even have the majority in Congress yet. And he is still against gay marraige - and like all of those against it cant think of ONE coherent logical reason why gay marraige is wrong.



  37. 37

    First of all, where do they get these numbers???? And secondly, people are saying "Where's the change he promised us?!?!” Do you realize how hard it is for him to change anything? When he constantly has people putting up road blocks in front of him… It is not as easy to change things in the government as everyone seems to think it is.



  38. 38

    So when will people wake up and remember WHO WAS IN CONGRESS DURING BUSH'S PRESIDENCY…………………….OH YEAH THE DEMOCRATS!!!! But of course it's in a democrat's nature to just sit back and complain and feel ENTITLED to everything they get….and these are the people minorities "admire"????



  39. 39

    Must've been Southerners who voted.



  40. 40

    Re: JackTheRipper – Democrats have the majority but in order to have a FILIBUSTER PROOF majority the Senate needs 60 votes to pass legislation. Last time they were short 4 votes (2 Dems) which is why the GOP was able to block the repeal.
    "Little steps" = way more than any other President has done for gay Americans!



  41. 41

    Re: nicky45 – Compare to Mccain he was the only choice left maybe if your country allowed more then one party to run on equally opportunity then this wouldn't always be the outcome. Change the damn system then you will get better candidates instead of bitching when the less stellar choice wins.



  42. 42

    One cannot fairly judge someone's 'popularity' with a "This time during Bush's presidency vs Obama's presidency" because they are not in the same situations at the same time.
    Besides polls are fucking stupid, people change their minds like they change their underwear.



  43. 43

    Re: supersongbird – Seriously thank you! He's done a lot, and sadly a lot of what he's done so far is being swept aside like its nothing



  44. 44

    BECAUSE HE IS BETTER THAN OBAMA!



  45. 45

    I MISS YOU GEORGIE BOY



  46. 46

    Leave politics to the big boys, Lady Gaga is more your speed.



  47. 47

    Re: hugh manatee – Exactly. Thankyou!



  48. 48

    Retrospective judgment vs. current judgment means it's a simple equation: 25/47 = 46/X
    X= Obama's retrospective percentage, which is much higher in actuality than Bush's.



  49. 49

    I think people are learning that it takes more than a high IQ and an ability to speak well in public to be the president. Obama is learning it is a lot easier to criticize and name call, than to actually be a good president. President Obama has a high IQ, but he is not a wise man, and that is what a president needs to be.



  50. 50

    Re: hugh manatee – i totally agree with you !

    Obama needs TIME to clean the mess Bush left him, but some americans ( and IM NOT saying all of them ) are just a bunch of impatient little kids who think Obama can fix all their problems in a day.

    Bush started two wars and destroyed the economy, so yeah, that's kinda long too cleanup.

    And to everyone saying that Obama won because he's a good motivational preacher… Well, at least he can read and look intelligent, which he is. Bush sounded stupid even when he was reading a teleprompter



  51. 51

    Not true!! What people love is money.. and goes to show that bullies and big money still run this country.. Greedy Pigs!



  52. 52

    Wow reading all these comments…. Wow. You are all stupid. Of course you all would loveeeee Bush now that a different president is in office. You all want to insult Barack Obama, but he is just trying to make sure he doesn't fuck up while cleaning up the mess that Bush left behind. Think about it, you morons, 8 years of Bush ruining our country and you think that it will only take 2 years to fix? How naive. Berate Obama all you want; the current state of affairs in America is because of Bush.

    PS, to all the people complaining about LGTB rights or whatever: Why don't we focus on something more important first, like the economy? Like job building? You fucking whine all day about how you can't get married, or how DADT hasn't been repealed but just remember, it won't matter if the whole fucking country goes down the drain.

    I used to hate the brits. They always comment on how dumb americans are, but now I've realized that they are right. The united states is full of ignorant people.



  53. 53

    Re: hugh manatee
    Finally someone smart.



  54. 54

    Wow! I can't believe 46% of America is still duped by Obama.



  55. 55

    Re: JackTheRipper – Do all of you forget what he did to help with the fucked up, health-care system? I would say that peoples lives is a higher priority than gay's getting married!



  56. 56

    Re: hugh manatee – Amen to that! Obama has done more good for the states then Bush ever did! I'm so glad I'm not American!



  57. 57

    Re: April 20th – Goes to show that you are one of the stupid people that just doesn’t get it and would vote for Palin.. It took Bush 8 years to get us in this hole we are in.. Obama has done so much in the short time he has been in office. The reason people got in trouble and couldn’t pay bills is because big corporations were making bad deals and getting greedy.. which were all friends of Bush and the good ole boys club.. Sadly I feel they will bully their way and get back everything they feel they want and to hell with the middle and lower class.. as long as the greedy will not have to pay more taxes and can get all the breaks as before..



  58. 58

    Of course america prefers George W Bush to BO. BO is the WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER. He's racked up a crapload of debt, has killed the economy, and (news flash) the job market sucks. Gee thanks BO! AND F U to all you stupid idots who fell for his hope and change crap.



  59. 59

    presidents constantly make decisions that don't end well…however, when someone comes into office promising benefits that have yet to come into play, it makes my approval of them drop. I'm not saying Bush was by any means brilliant, but when a president is elected on the platform of "change" and, as we've seen within the last few days, has managed to agree maintenance of tax cuts for the wealthy, it makes me a tad upset. we can't know what's going on behind the scenes in a presidency, and that has a lot to do with the final decisions of course, but i just can't see any of the things Obama had promised happening yet…



  60. 60

    Re: Adam Burns – agreed!



  61. 61

    LOL. How get's the positive press. Seriously? You libtards crack me up.



  62. 62

    Only reason why it would say America likes Bush more is because all the people who voted has a computer to send in their vote, unfortunately for those who don't have a computer let alone Internet can't say what they truely feel. Bush screwed us all so bad he's the only one not in a recession. Only difference between the two Bush is an ass and he was too dumb to hide it. Obama is progressing slowly in change but the right way. Only thing in common they're both "doing" something for all of America.



  63. 63

    How can someone speak on behalf of America? I HATE Ex Prez George W Bush and it seems a majority have forgotten about the 8 years of clean up our wonderful current president has to do. I voted against Bush for good reasons….. He's a moron!



  64. 64

    Re: ghound – Barack Obama killed the economy ?! THE ECONOMY CRASHED WHEN BUSH WAS PRESIDENT, you retarded ! Obama is trying to fix it, and it's not done yet, but it's getting better slowly ! You can't expect him to do that in one day !

    People like you are part of the reason why the economy crashed, because you probably voted for Bush, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER.



  65. 65

    All the people asking 'where is the change he talked about?!' seriously crack me up. It's only been 2 years. Do you really think someone, anyone can step in and make everything alright again in just 2 years time? Talk about demanding the impossible.



  66. 66

    HAHA!!
    this means one of two things:
    1. There are more IDIOTS taking polls in this country or
    2. Pigs are flying out of SOMBODY'S ass as we speak!!
    Polls are not a very good indicators of facts, I hope everybody is aware of this.



  67. 67

    Re: wickedfate – You are correct, Bush was the worst.
    Economists estimate recovery could take 8-10 years and if not for the actions of the Obama administration we would be in a depression with millions more jobs lost than those already lost because of Bush. There is nothing concrete or tangible here (yet) and the President does not communicate his accomplishments-that's part of the problem.
    Then there are those who watch too much Fox news and think what Hannity and Beck say is the truth- hahaha. Oh the horror of a tea bagger fact checking what they confuse for "news" lol! Facts are like kryptonite to them any which way so…

  82. 82

    I hated Bush but I can acknowledge that he was better than Obama. Obama is terrible. His recent decision on extending the Bush tax cuts is his first good decision, and he's been in office for nearly two years. That's deplorable.



  83. 83

    Please. People are stupid.
    Obama was handed the worst economic crisis in decades, and people expected him to perform miracles, and when he wasn't able to, they turn on him. He's the president, not a magician, dumbasses.
    Re: jeanmarie – George W. Bush took the US into an unjustified war, yet Obama is worse for the country? Jesus, you people are f'in morons!!

  85. 85

    You have to go to the internet now to get the truth. The MSM is more interested in reporting fluff. They aren't keeping the people informed at all. You have to go online and do the research. Obama's connections through the years are scary. Wikileaks has done a better job at revealing the shadiness of U.S. government than the MSM has ever done. There's a reason the government wants to control the internet…it's where the truth can be found.

    All of you are incredibly ignorant if you truly believe that one single man can ruin or fix a country. Our country needs to get over the huge party division because that doesn't help worth a shit when we are in the spot we are in now. Maybe Americans are finally clued in to that fact that BO can't wave a magic wand just like Bush couldn't. Bush also couldn't single handedly screw our country as you all want so hard to believe. Maybe you should check your facts first or worry more about being a better person - it's ppl like all of you that create the hate that thrives through our country. It's one thing to have different opinions, values and beliefs but it is another to be downright cruel, disrespectful, and completely grotesque. If you are not fluent in what you are even preaching maybe you should move aside. If anyone wishes more harm to our country - think about shipping out my friend - we don't need you here, later dude. Keeping our country safe economically and physically is more important than social agendas at this time. Just because the government is slacking when it comes to gay rights, the majority of America is not. Your time will come because we are routing for you but realize you are not the only ppl that walk this Earth and suffer from judgment and hardships.

    America is medieval. I live in Scandinavia, and we have free healthcare, free education, free food in school. Here people gets shocked when they hear about you discussing gay rights like it wasn't a settled matter? Here gays can get married, adopt… they have exactly the same rights as any straight person in any situation. As it should be.

    It's a bit awkward that "the country of freedom" is so behind. The only reason to hate on gays is insecurity of your own sexuality. If you're scared of something, you want to get as far away from it as possilble. If you are scared of your sexuality one way of protecting yourself is proving yourself straight to yourself and the people surrounding you. That, some people do by hating on gays. Like bullies hate on people to make themselves feel better.

    Like I said, awkward.

    Re: LeeLee1985 – I for one am not saying "one man" ruined anything. When referring to "Bush"-he had plenty of help within his administration in ruining our economy (ok some credit there goes to prior administrations deregulatory policies as well-Reagan and Clinton).
    Invading Iraq under false pretenses by LYING to the world about WMD was unconscionable. The loss of human life for no reason but greed can never be justified!
    I could go on and on about all of the disaster(s) Bush adm. policies and the irreparable damage those policies have caused this country but…
    Suffice to say Bush came very close to ruining this country!

    Re: LeeLee1985 – You absolutely right in saying we need to get over the partisan division in this country. As I listen to President Obama especially over the last couple of days I think that is what he is trying to accomplish.
    In-fighting comes from both sides but the opposition-including social issues which in 2010 should be NO ISSUE-is coming from the right.
    Both parties working together would be the best thing for the country obviously but I'm not holding my breath. Ideals are worlds apart!

    Re: fridaljung – Yes for the reasons you wrote I am embarrassed for my country. (My grandparents are Swedish immigrants)
    It is disgraceful that things like healthcare and equality for all are even being debated in our political system. There is this disgusting "only my ass matters" and "nobody better be getting anything I'm not getting" attitude from the right wing. And what is so disturbing most of it come from the "Christian" right!
    Anyway, you are right on! God Jul!

    Re: nicky45 – And you are a wimpy little, petty little, needle dick pissant and a racist one too. You don't even have the balls to admit you have "issues" with an African American in the white house. You are an unpatriotic embarrassment to my country (read post 92). Oh and speaking of "name calling' isn't that all you ever do on here? That's all you can do because being so stupid, you know nada about the issues and have no basis or facts to back up your bullshit. You need to be feeling sorry for yourself :(
    Have a nice time at your next KKK meeting!

    Re: nicky45 – You are the hateful uneducated one lol not me.
    Bush made me sad-I did not HATE the way you HATE Obama. And you hate him for being African-American. That is obvious by your lack of information and void of fact posts.
    It's 2010, little dick. Grow up!
    Why do you get all defensive and jacked up when someone challenges your post? Why did you call MJJ a dumbass?
    Your inablility to debate your point and articulate on a gossip blog is your problem lol not mine! SO SAD!
