    Anyone really surprised?

    George W. Bush’s job approval rating as president has spiked to 47 percent, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.

    That’s 1 point higher than President Barack Obama’s job approval rating in a poll taken the same week.

    This is the first time Gallup asked Americans to retrospectively rate Bush’s job performance. And it was a stunning turnaround from his low point of 25 percent in November 2008. The 47 percent number is 13 points higher than the last Gallup poll taken before Bush left office in 2009 and the highest rating for him since before Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

    Aye, as am I that you'd still actually post such an irrelevant, bias, and misleading vid.

    I'm surprised that anybody would put out a Bush thread unless they were trying to blame him for something. Why, I'm amazed. It doesn't amaze me that Bush's approval is higher than Obama's. What amazes me is that Obama's approval rating is even in double digits.

    The Democrats and the corrupt MSM preached 'Sky is Falling' Gloom & Doom for eight straight years when Bush was in there. So it wasn't very surprising to me that his poll numbers were so low at the end of his term. The Democrats and the corrupt MSM undermined everything for eight straight years. Bush's approval ratings will get better with time. More & more people are realizing what a real disaster this current Administration is. Their numbers will continue to sink.

    This thread reminds me of a billboard... maybe it's just here in Texas... of GWB's smiling face with the caption..... "Miss me yet?"

    The current tax situation is proposed to remain in place for two years. It's thought it will pass in Congress. Perhaps two years will be long enough to inspire the private sector to grow and begin reducing that pesky 9.8% unemployment rate enough to offset what I consider too long an extension of unemployment benefits. The liberals would still like to get a larger piece of the estate tax pie but that's a fight for another day.

    All in all... an interesting day on the Hill.

    This is understandable, since Bush has had a year and half where he hasen't actually been responsible for anything.

    Remember what his last approval ratings were, while he was President?

    I dont really care about either of their approval ratings. I don't want either to be President.

    Well, no. I meant "responsible", not "blamed". People still blame him for things all the time.

    According to Gallup, it was 34% - that was, of course, the HIGHEST approval rating he had in his last YEAR.
