Bush Hits New Lows

posted by on May 22 at 15:49 PM

Bush’s approval ratings hit new lows in two polls today. Only 33% approve of Bush’s job performance according to Rasmussen; Bush is pegged at 31% by ARG. These are, as others have pointed out again and again, Nixon numbers—and much, much worse than Jimmy Carter ever polled.

Which is why I laughed when I read this piece by Niall Ferguson about the tragedy of George W. Bush…

Before the curtain can fall on The Tragedie of King George, we need at least three more scenes to decide the fates of three crucial characters—the only principals still left standing aside from King George himself. First, we need a scene in Israel. Since the failure of the war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s popularity has been in free fall. His current approval rating is around 2 per cent, by comparison with which King George is a pop idol.

Ha! When (if) Bush II ever leaves office, the media will go into brainwashing overdrive. People will think he was the Second Coming of Christ by the time they're done, much in the same way that they sanitized and repackaged Nixon and Reagan.
