    CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?

    CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama? – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    (CNN) - Americans are divided over whether President Barack Obama or his predecessor has performed better in the White House, according to a new national poll.

    And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday also indicates in the battle for Congress, Republicans hold large advantages over the Democrats among independents, men and blue-collar whites. The poll also indicates that Republicans are much more enthusiastic than Democrats to vote.

    By 47 to 45 percent, Americans say Obama is a better president than George W. Bush. But that two point margin is down from a 23 point advantage one year ago.

    "Democrats may want to think twice about bringing up former President George W. Bush's name while campaigning this year," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
    Looks like a few people out there would like a do-over on Obama.

    Does that mean Bush was a better president than the left cares to admit or is Obama just that bad?

    You still can't really answer that question since President Obama's term isn't over yet.

    Personally, I prefer to think that most of the faults of the Bush2 Administration could be blamed more on Cheney and Rumsfeld and other politicians of the GOP than on Bush. I think much of where Bush went wrong was because he was getting bad counsel from his advisors. I don't know how much history will look into that aspect of his presidency, though.

    Point still stand it is a stupid question and poll. You can't judge and compare a presidency to another one when it isn't even over yet.

    The socialists didn't have any problem answering it while Bush was in office.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Do I need to repeat myself?

    That would be McCain. In order to have a do over, it would be between Obama and McCain. Just saying . . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    At least Bush will not point fingers at others and blame others the way Obama does
