44% Of Americans Want Bush Back In WH

Fri Dec 11, 2009 10:37 pm

I know this is going to drive most liberals nuts, but it is true. President Obama's support is declining, rapidly. His approval polls are at 48% and dropping. He has run up the biggest deficiet of all time, in just his first year. Many Americans are embarrassed he got the Nobel Peace Prize.......for doing NOTHING.

BHO has made the US the laughing stock of the world, and don't even get me started on his boy tag, VP "Joe" Biden, who was born with two feet in his mouth.  banghead 

A growing percentage of Americans, 44% and climbing, wish George W. Bush could return as POTUS.  bigthumbsup 

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/1209/Bush_closes_the_gap.html

"Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama's declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they'd rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that's somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country's difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited. The closeness in the Obama/Bush numbers also has implications for the 2010 elections. Using the Bush card may not be particularly effective for Democrats anymore, which is good news generally for Republicans and especially ones like Rob Portman who are running for office and have close ties to the former President."

Yeah. He's got a real problem.

Apparently people forget that Bush got us into this problem. I'm not saying that Obama is the solution, but at least he didn't cause it.

I think that the poll result was probably that 44 Americans want him back in office. That's 44 total, not percent. Anything more than that I'd have a hard time believing.

To say that Obama's "run up the biggest deficit of all time" is utter sophistry. Can you tell us simply what percentage of the current deficit was already there during Dubya's last days in office?

Well to be fair, I think KC135 is basically saying that an increasing number of voters are turned off by Obama and his policies. He's done nothing to curb unemployment. He's done ZERO for small businesses (I should know as a small business owner). Hell, he didn't even have 1 representative of small businesses at his bogus 'jobs summit'...yet he had the unions and large corps like GE.

Someone needs to remind Obama and the left that it is the governments job to:
"Promote the welfare, not Provide the welfare." It's a rather simple concept Obama. You don't raise taxes in a recession. You don't try to ram two trillion plus dollar bills through congress in a recession. You don't take over the private industry (i.e. banks, auto, soon to be Health Care/Energy). It's no wonder why small businesses are in a hiring freeze, and/or laying off more and more people. Obama has given us ZERO NADA NOTHING to make people/businesses confident. I say keep it up Mr. Obama...that way the House/Senate can flip in 2010  bigthumbsup

I read that story and got a chuckle. Then I read the source and lost my humor.

http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot....9/12/obamas-december-standing.html

Finally 20% of voters, including 35% of Republicans, support impeaching Obama for his actions so far. I'm not clear exactly what 'high crimes and misdemeanors' they are using to justify that position but there may be a certain segment of voters on both the right and the left these days that simply think the President doing things they don't agree with is grounds for removal from office. I don't think Obama has a lot to worry about on that front.


That is just stupid. He has done nothing that rises to the level of impeachment. I agree with the writer that a certain segment of the population just doesn't understand what elections are for anymore. In 2012 there will be ample opportunity to remove him from office through long standing tradition, an election versus tossing someone with policies that you don't agree with.

How, exactly? GWB telling the world he is going to get Osama bin Laden dead or alive, then turns around and says "I don't think about him much anymore." GWB landing on the aircraft carrier and the "mission accomplished" banner. GWB invading a nation that had nothing to do with anything. How did Obama make the US a laughing stock?

I would like to see the actual poll instead of a link to a conservative blog that simply says 44% of Americans want GWB back. Until I see that actual poll, this means nothing. What was GWB numbers the last few years of his term?

I love the right: they crow on and on any time anyone with a (D) or anyone they dub a "RINO" has poll numbers go down. Do you ever see anyone on the right say "Oh, that person on the left had poll numbers go up! Good for them!" Nope. When someone's numbers go down, even by one or two points, it signals to all righties that "Americans hate the communists/socialists/marxist Democrats running the country."

You have got to find something better to do with your time. Volunteer at a shelter. Meals on Wheels. Something other than crow when your "most wanted" list loses a point or two in the polls.

in a 2 party system this level if support is expected. DId you really think that anyone could have maintated his poll numbers?

You have a problem when you get to the low 20%. like some one else. When Obama gets to that level we can talk.

of course the economy under Bush was better. the house of cards had not fallen yet.

Are you doing this intentionally? You made this exact same claim just a few days ago. It was clearly pointed out to you by several people actually living in the world outside the US (who are thus MUCH more qualified to make claims on that issue than you are) that no such thing is the case, and that it was Bush who made your country the laughing stock of the world. I told you then that you wouldn't like it, but I hadn't expected you to not only ignore it, but flat-out pretend it was never said, and even REPEAT it a few days later.

So please stop telling us what WE think of your country, because that is something we most certainly know better than you, and it's a simple fact that in the eyes of the world, the reputation of the US has improved significantly over the last year.

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Thread starter):
Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama's declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they'd rather have his predecessor.

Many of those 44% are likely saying they'd rather have Bush simply because he's not Obama, not because they cared for Bush at all. So to try and use Bush's approval ratings at the end of his term to compare with Obama is a bit disingenuous.

But it's no secret that a lot of people aren't too happy with Obama, and if you look at it from a "what have you done for me lately" standpoint, they have plenty of reason to feel that way. He does have some time to turn things around before 2012, however.

A growing percentage of Americans, 44% and climbing, wish George W. Bush could return as POTUS.   

What is at all surprising about that?

Lewis Black did advocate the idea of bringing back a dead president, though he offered the choice of Reagan.

Bringing back Reagan would be a HUGE improvement over Obama or W.

Well, he's not up for election in 2010. As far as 2010 goes, I think the Democrats will lose plenty of seats. I don't know whether it will be enough to put the GOP back in the majority in the Senate, and it certainly won't be enough to put them in the majority in the House, but they will lose seats. And that's fine with me, except for the fact that some of those who are really doing the country a disservice (the Schumers, the Pelosis, etc.) will get re-elected easily and some of the newer guys will get voted out simply from guilt by association.

But the government ran well with a GOP Congress and a Democrat president in the 90s, so even if the GOP did take over Congress in 2010, I'd be okay with it.

No, it was your returning Bush to office AFTER 'the cat was totally out of the bag' on Iraq and every other heinous dirty intrigue and international and domestic crime, narrated in non-sequiteur gibberish, that made you the laughing stock of the world. Your choice of Obama returned you to civilized society and we chose to overlook your past indiscretions. If, however, after all that has come to pass and all that is known, the American people are in any significant way nostalgic for the days of Bush, then they are beyond therapy. I rather think, however, that the situation is not as terminally pathological as you seem to.

Let's be serious here. 44% of Americans DO NOT WANT GWB BACK IN OFFICE.

That is absurd. GWB is a complete joke, who got us into this utter mess in the first place. Fortunately MOST Americans understand that except for those who can't seem to get it into their little minds that GWB got us into two wars, ran up the deficit to unsustainable levels, and was the major advocate for "Big government Conservatism".

And unfortunately some of those people populate this website.

I don't see how anyone can take that statement seriously. You think after what George Bush did in office, Obama made the U.S. a laughing stock? Whatever you're on I really need some for finals next week.  bouncy   spin .

If anything, American citizens are laughing at Obama, but as far as the perception in the eyes from people all over the world, he is a MAJOR improvement over the Warmonger Bush.

Quoting Scorpio (Reply 22):
So please stop telling us what WE think of your country, because that is something we most certainly know better than you, and it's a simple fact that in the eyes of the world, the reputation of the US has improved significantly over the last year.

Couldn't have said it better. Maybe if he heard it from Limbaugh he would follow suit.

Quoting KC135TopBoom (Thread starter):
A growing percentage of Americans, 44%

Furthermore, these polls are extremely inaccurate. I'm pretty sure if they got at least 90% of U.S. citizens of voting age to take this poll, the numbers would be drastically different.

Of course, if we look outside the US, we'll also notice a huge increase in unemployment around the globe over the same period. Now that's hardly all Obama's fault??

It is the President's fault when so many American's lose their jobs.

Does not matter which president, which party - the guy in the White House has to fix the problem NOW.

Obama had about 30 months to get Americans back to work - of his historical legacy will match Herbert Hoover.

Quoting 4holer (Reply 4):
I think that the poll result was probably that 44 Americans want him back in office. That's 44 total, not percent. Anything more than that I'd have a hard time believing.

I think that's more the truth.

If an election were held today, between our former President and our current one, and you had, say, a two-month campiagn, that Mr. Obama would still win in a convincing route. Once the Bush record was put in front of voters, only the wilfully blinded by the right would vote for Mr. Bush. He's the big reason we're in all these messes.

KC is just trying to peddle right-wing wet dreams at this point. By the time 2012 comes around, I still believe the GOP won't have a chance in the presidential election. They don't have anyone on the horizon, right at the moment, who is a really serious canddiate. That can change, but I believe things will be much better by election day.

Keep dreaming, KC.
