    Well one of those two created this mess and one didn't. The one who didn't create this mess is the one currently in office.

    Dude even right leaning well respected economists have nothing good to say:

    When I asked Dale Jorgenson, the eminent expert on productivity (and a Republican), what had been the positive aspects of President George W. Bush’s economic policy, Mr. Jorgenson said, “I don’t see any redeeming features, unfortunately.” After Republicans opposed the stimulus package this year, The Financial Times, not exactly a liberal organ, called the party’s ideology harebrained. When Olympia Snowe was recently explaining why she might be the only Republican senator to vote for health reform, she suggested it was because her party had moved so far to the right.

    Now the parts where Obama gets beaten are among others

    Who do you blame for the deficit ... Bush (44%)
    Who is to blame for whole debt drama ... Republicans (47%)
    Not favouring the Tea Party (40%)
    Tea Party influence in GOP too much (43%)
    Not a supporter of the Tea Party (73%)

    From Documents: The Full Results From The New York Times and CBS News Poll - Document - NYTimes.com

    So GOP and Tea Party people.... how does it feel to be more unpopular than Obama?
    Do you really believe Congressional approval ratings mean anything? Are you happy with your Rep? That is all that matters as Congressional elections are always local, not national. anything to defend the indefensible. See you in November 2012. This will be on the ballot not the Tea Party or Bush. My Rep will be re-elected as will the Republican majority. 23 Democrat Senators are up for re-election and 10 Republicans. Going to be a long night for liberals.

    Does it really matter what GW Bush's economic policies were, he is out of office. Obama had total control of the Congress and a blank check. He has shown his incompetence and generated the following results

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    Do you think approval ratings a year plus away from an election matter? Either they do or they dont... which is it?

    And of course your rep will be re elected (most likely), since most seats are "safe" seats for either party..

    So what?

    Without knowing SPECIFICALLY what the reasons are for the low rating, that opinion poll is worthless.

    I dont approve of what Obama has done in some areas but that doesn't mean I'm just going to vote GOP because of it eiher.

    A disapproval for Obama is not an automatic approval for the GOP

    Sorry, that doesn't fly any more after 2 1/2 years in office and a blank check the first two years. Complete implementation of his policies that have failed. Keep blaming Bush, see you in Nov. 2012. There is no justification for re-electing Obama and over 54% of the people today agree

    The results speak for themselves and results matter, not rhetoric or a big smile

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.

    Maybe not in your wacko world but in reality even well respected right leaning economists squarely place many of our troubles today on the Bush doctrine.

    So who am I going to give more credence too? Well respected right leaning economists or some boob on the internet that cuts and pastes the post over and over again?

    or how about this guy:

    But perhaps the most persistent — and thought-provoking — conservative critic of the party has been Bruce Bartlett. Mr. Bartlett has worked for Jack Kemp and Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush. He has been a fellow at the Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation. He wants the estate tax to be reduced, and he thinks that President Obama should not have taken on health reform or climate change this year.
    Above all, however, he thinks that the Republican Party no longer has a credible economic policy. It continues to advocate tax cuts even though the recent Bush tax cuts led to only mediocre economic growth and huge deficits. (Numbers from the Congressional Budget Office show that Mr. Bush’s policies are responsible for far more of the projected deficits than Mr. Obama’s.)
