    If we were looking at the same time frame I would have to agree that President Obama has been treated worse. If I remember correctly people were still largely supportive of President Bush because of 9/11.

    There's no right answer to this question.

    Obama. For the simple fact that he is worse than Bush.

    Actually if Obama is being treated worse, it's probably because every new PR shocker from a partisan blogger, every new low blow that gets more hits than the last one, lowers the bar for what passes for political debate that much more. We're racing to the bottom.
    It could always be worse.

    Uh huh. The media is treating him with kids gloves so yeah the bloggers will do a lot of it. As proof of this I present the newest draft being proposed. Something that every media outlet and a lot of other people hollered and screamed when they just thought that Bush might institute a draft. (in this respect Bush has been treated far worse.) Yet where is the media talking about it now???

    Somebody introduces legislation like this among dozens of other crazy perennials every session, is this supposed to be a grand conspiracy to lay at Obama's door now? He's not all that, but he's not responsible for every dumb thing done by anybody associated with government either.

    What media are you referring to? MSNBC or FOX? HuffPo or Drudge? Rhoades or Savage? What exactly constitutes "media" these days, anyway? It's an empty word to fuel an empty sound bite anymore.

    But if you can, step back and look at the whole picture. There isn't any difference between the partisans braying on the left and right as far as the quantity of their nastiness. The only thing that changes is the level of nastiness they have to reach to get attention.
    It could always be worse.

    That about says it all.

    There were attacks on both presidents, in fact, on all of the presidents.

    Why anyone wants to be president of the US is a mystery.

    I certainly would hate to have the job. I would love the pension plan though.

    Re: Who is treated worse, Obama or GW Bush?

    Bush-Clinton-Bush, and now Obama are all agents of the same entity and all should be treated with equal disdain. It is very encouraging to see that many of the same ones who disparaged little puke GW Bush for his murderous theiving policies are catching on quickly to the fact that Obama is a puppet dancing on the same strings...Thus the horrible approval ratings....More endless war soley for the profit of those who have bought and paid for these third rate actors....Obama has about as much to do with US policy as the Tidy Bowl man....
