    Why would Bush's approval rating have anything to do with Obama's actual performance?

    When we have criticized him for his policies, the progressives responded with "he has a 60% approval rating" as that somehow justifies letting terrorists get away with killing an ambassador.

    Now that Obama has tumbled from his media enhanced throne and entering the 30 percentile range, it's "so what?"..he's still more popular than Bush....

    What is it that all things Obama are measured against the backdrop of Bush, who you guys have claimed is the worst president ever? I would think one would want to compare Obama's record with great presidents. However, I suspect the progressives can't do that since Barack Obama, the man that promised more than any other president is going to come up looking very average against even the very average presidents......Carter always comes to mind.

    Personally, I see nothing but nonsense in looking back to the past, it's what's happening now that counts and in America it has been getting worse at least since Obama, and that's where "progressives need to focus, not on the past...which, really, has about as much to do with progressing as does herpes in polite conversation.

    Then again, the American progressive movement hasn't had a new idea in 11 decades
    Well, My post isn't meant as a cover or support for Obama, that may be what a partisan lefty might point it out for. I agree with you about Benghazi, and have probably been equal with you or more so critical of Obama's foreign policy. It just seems awkward to me for the right to be penning a thread on Obama's 40% approval rating considering Bush bombed out at 22%. Which was probably his totally color blind base.

    And what is this criticism about the Obama/Bush comparisons when you just told another poster that his Bush/Obama comparison was too logical?!?!

    Apparently only when the Bush/Obama comparisons leave Bush looking good are they acceptable, but the reverse shouldn't be pointed out. Its freaking crazy for the right to be mocking Obama's 40% approval rating, considering where Bush was when he slinked away from Washington.

    What difference does it make what Obama's approval rating is?

    He will never run for another election again.

    So why should he give a **** where he is in the polls?

    I could care less what Obama's approval rating is.

    He is a sh!tty POTUS (just as GW Bush was a sh!tty POTUS). That is all I care about in this regard.

    Lol, then the obsession is on the left and right. And another lol, of course I didn't mean you as a partisan lefty, don't know how you would read what I posted in that fashion, further, your posting habits would display more of a partisan on the right.

    I reviewed the OP and much of the thread...

    I don't see where there is a direct comparison to Bush in the OP

    We constantly hear in here how Obama is doing such a great job from the progressive members. How when we say that the polls are against him, we are just not taking our information from the right sources, or we don't know how to read the polls....Well, here is a poll from NBC for God's sake....In all areas it seems that American's of ALL stripes are just fed up with this liar in office....

    Merely stating what most of this thread supports, is that the progressives have drank from the polling numbers well for five and a half years,. and now that that support is sliding, as was predicted by one person at least, me, shortly after the last election, and continued through the stupid pride based dick wagging with congress.

    While the Obama-as-hero gang has insisted there is "nothing to" the criticisms I and others have been raising, his numbers are tumbling. With now weeks before the mid terms, they rabidly cling to the claim Obama will regain majorities in both houses, that there is no error in his administration or policies, their only response when confronted with the cold truth of polling results lagging, is to say, as you do, "what about Bush?"

    Again, it's about what's happening now and in the near future...as in mid terms, as in the last gasp of the Obama administration in which he may even face Bush's low numbers. Let's face it, if he loses congress to the people he called "enemies" and has been bashing for six years, what chances do you think are they going to let him use the White House toilet?

    can you see some "executive branch" cost cutting which he will have to veto?

    Hey, the crap has only begun to flow backward.....I suspect there's some "traitors and terrorists" who would like some pay back.....and they are going to get it.

    Well, I'll certainly agree with you about the bolded, however, for ones legacy, and bragging rights at the presidential library, I would think a POTUS would prefer to hang Clintons exiting job approval rating on the wall as opposed to GWBush's.

    You are probably right.

    I think after the November elections, the number one word on Obama's mind will be 'legacy'.

    Ahem...with the deepest respect,

    "your posting habits would display more of a partisan on the right." ...BECAUSE the left is in power. THEY set policy, what the opposition in this administration has been allowed to contribute is words...period.

    Words do not cost lives, run up the deficit, cost people their homes...they are words.

    The left has been making ALL of those decisions since mid February 2009.

    Trust me, if and when the Republican party can get over itself, stop circling the wagons and shooting inward, agree on a real candidate and actually win the pot of gold, the Republican friends I have now will be much, much fewer in number.

    If you think what I have to say now is rough on Obama, perhaps is you were to read what I wrote about ****ing Nixon, Reagan at the time, and Bush Sr., you might lose this idea I'm a Teabagger or something

    Well again, I don't carry water for Obama, his approval rating started to slide with me while he was yet candidate Obama, when he declared that as president, he would attack al Qaeda in Pakistan, with or without the Pakistani governments permission, and he did keep true to that promise, but I viewed/view it as more belligerence, something I was hoping we might be getting away from after Bush.

    Also, I wasn't referring to the op specifically, but throughout this board, righties will compare Bush with Obama when it makes Bush look good, and lefties will compare Obama to Bush when it makes Obama look good. It's the way that partisans roll.

    If there is one partnership I will never understand is the u.s cooperating with the Nation of Pakistan. I would not be surprised that our problems in Afghanistan were the result of Pakistans involvement.
