    much BDS in the OP
    I guess you would be correct if job losses were viewed more favorably than job creation, a lower stock market was viewed as preferable to a higher one, if rising unemployment was viewed as better than decreasing unemployment. I guess its all a matter of perspective.

    pure BDS. show me why Bush was responsible for that stuff. one of the few things a president controls is his appointments to the USSC. Roberts and Alito vs. Quotamayor and Kagan. No comparison

    Actually I could care less either way... I am just being objective as I see it. I don't hold a lot of stock in these polls as FDR was one of the worst presidents ever but always rates so high.

    LOL....there was never a "victory" in Iraq. If Bush handed over a victory, we would have been out of Iraq when he left. What he handed over was a complete mess created by him and his administration. That's like saying the Johnson handed Nixon a victory in Vietnam. If GWB had never happened we would not have the mess in Iraq that we do today. Sorry...but that's a fact.

    Yep. Not really a tough concept at all. Many conservatives are just butthurt obama is better than bush. Then again its not hard to be better than bush. He set the bar so low. It's almost as if bush wanted to be known as the worst potus in history. He probably knew he will never be the best so he just went for the worst. He succeeded if that was his goal.

    They are the same ones that actually believe that 911 occurred on Clinton's watch and GWB was responsible for the capture and killing of Bin Laden. They live in a world where facts have to come with spin and asterisks.

    ...and Carter is more popular than Bush. What's your point?

    Kennedy Still Highest-Rated Modern President, Nixon Lowest
    George W. Bush Least Popular Living Ex-President

    Comparing an ex-president to a sitting president is always complete silliness. It is comparing apples to oranges. People like the view of Presidents in the rear view mirror...

    BTW. Bush's unfavorables remain the highest of all ex-presidents.

    Nope. The Democrats did that.

    Why did the economy tank? Because the left-wing sub-prime mortgage fiasco started under Slick Willy Clinton, and was overseen by Barney Frank, and it finally blew up under Bush.

    Sept. 30, 1999 - New York Times - "Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits...."

    The article even had a warning:

    "In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980's."

    BINGO!

    And confirmed by the NY Times.
