Anyone Else Laughing?

I find it so funny that, at the same point in his first term as Barry O is now, 200 days in, Bush's Presidency was considered a success by 56% of Americans, while Barry O is only considered a success by 49%. And Bush's approval rating was 55% compared to Barry O's 51%. Anyone else fine this extremely funny and ironic??

  • You mean that its not being reported...yeah, little odd. Or how about people screaming on the streets that July was the deadliest month in Afghanistan so far in the ENTIRE war..... ::chirping::. Wait wait wait SURELY the same people that were AGHAST at wire tapping are appalled at us turning in what others are saying to a WHITE HOUSE run email...nope still nothin'. So do you think the mainstream media is getting kickbacks for their contributing to the propaganda or is the tingle up the leg enough?

  • Typical "lame duck" numbers. Bush was able to be "hated" because he wasn't a threat, running from or to anything, and considered fair game. Now that BO is in office and doing his - what is he doing again?- we realize that "the devil we had wasn't as bad as the devil we got" type of thing. Bush wasn't a bad president. He wasn't perfect nor flawed. He was.........human. It is in hind-sight when we have time to look at his accomplishments and failures that we will truly be able to understand. I think the approval ratings is a loud message that we want what we had. Are you listening BO!
