George Bush always said he would let history judge him and now it looks as though it has and favorably too.
For the first time since 2005, more Americans now view former President George W. Bush favorably than unfavorably, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.
Forty-nine percent have a favorable view of Bush, while 46 percent view him unfavorably, the poll found. His ratings have risen by more than 10 points among both parties since he left office, with 84 percent of Republicans and 24 percent of Democrats now rating him favorably. Meanwhile, another Gallup poll shows President Obama with only a 47% approval rating, with 44% disapproving.
At Bush’s lowest point, in 2008, just 32 percent of Americans rated him positively, according to Gallup. Like most recent presidents, however, he saw his numbers rise after leaving the White House.
This all due to Obama saying he could kill Americans with Drones like he did with those terrorists who were American, the lies of Benghazi by lying to the American people for two weeks and before the U.N. saying it was a spontaneous attack caused by a little known anti-muslim video then admitting it wasn’t and they kew all along it wasn’t, then spying on media personnell, the targetting of conservative groups by the IRS for almost two years and then saying he didn’t know about it until he read about it in the newspapers even though his chief of staff knew about it since 2011 and others did too and the massive phone and interet and e-mail surveilance of every American in the name of national security. And this is all just the tip of the iceberg. Wait until Obamcare takes effect in 2014 when they plan to lay off 30,000 doctors, have another 700 billion dollars in medicare cuts to pay for Obamcare after taking 750 billion out to pay off the national debt, new taxes, forcing citizens to buy insurance approved by the government, all your medical records going into a central government computer and more.
I knew this guy was no good from the beginning when he said such things as wanting a civilian army bigger than our regular army starting in the eighth grade and up to mid 50’s to combat terrroism. Sound familiar?
Therefore, it appears that what Obama meant by promising to be the anti-Bush is that, unlike George W. Bush, Obama would not get us out of a recession and into many years of economic prosperity. In fact unemployment remains at 7.9 % and real unemployment is estimated to be at 10% after being at 5% when Bush left office.There would also be successful terror attacks on American soil during Obama’s watch and a litany of scandals unseen in almost a half-century.
Bush was a good President. Did he make mistakes? Of course he did! Didn’t every President make some? But he had a good heart and he loved this country and it’s people and therein lies the difference between Bush and Obama who does not feel anything for the USA other than contempt.
Maybe the next time a former community organizer raised in a creepy church runs for president, the media will work a little harder to dig into his real agenda.
So to all you Obama supporters out there, how’s that HOPE AND CHANGE working out for you?
