Barack Obama May Want to Stop Blaming Bush, New CNN Poll Says Obama better President than W by 2%


From “The One” to one and done in less than two years …

New poll from CNN asks the question, who is a better President, George W. Bush or Barack Hussein Obama? The Obamamessiah eeks out a 2% victory, 47% to 45% over W. Wasn’t Barack Obama supposed to be God’s gift to the Democrat party, America and the World?  However, much has changed since his election in 2008 and Americans have come to realize they want nothing to do with his version of hope and change. Maybe it is not Bush they should be polling Obama against?

Don’t Democrats believe that George Bush was the worst President ever? What do they have to say that their Saviour is within 2%? It’s only a matter of time before he sinks below Bush. The shame for Democrats. In 2008 they declared the Republican party was dead, now just two short years later they have a President hovering near the 30′s in job approval and they are about to participate in one of the biggest political election blood baths ever.

The One … Hmm … This is revealing


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.

CNN can reference Obama up 3% points in job approval all they want. The fact of the matter is that he is in a statistical dead heat with GWB for worst President. Actually, Jimmy carter is the worst, O and W are runner ups. What took GWB eight years and two wars later along with a nagging media at every turn, Obama has manged to do in less than two. Obama, like most peoples mortgages is underwater in his job approval at 45% approve, 52% disapprove.

According to the poll, 45 percent of the public approves of the job Obama’s doing as president, up three points from late last month, with 52 percent disapproving. Fifty-nine percent of independents disapprove of how the Obama’s handling his duties, with 37 percent giving him a thumbs up.

Lost in the polling data are these little tidbits, by a 52% to 45% margin the GOP leads in Congressional Generic polling, 59% to 37% of Independents disapprove of the way Obama has done his job and the enthusiasm gap is a huge issue as most Republicans say they are extremely or very enthusiastic about voting this year compared to  only a third of Democrats feel the same way.

      I love the mirror shot with Jimmy Carter.

      Carter is grinning and he is thinking “keep going and your actions will win you the title of Worst President in History”

      I hope that history will be more fair to Bush than this generation has been. He made some mistakes as they all do, but he did a lot of good things, including strong leadership through one of this country’s worst crises.

      #2-Agreed. My thoughts echo your sentiments exactly regarding GWB. Bottom line is: the blame game is way past “old” now. When Obama took office- facts are that unemployment was around 7%, now it is fast approaching 10%.

      No one is “blaming” Obama for the State of the Economy which he inherited, however—even doing the basic Math and 2 years later—the overall economy has gotten WORSE, NOT IMPROVED.

      IMO, it is unrealistic to expect one elected President or his Administration to address and fix every issue/problem the US faces. After many Government Bailouts, Stimulus Programs that have failed, the American public is looking for accountability, ownership and action and not more broken promises & lies. Having Health Care shoved down our throats has not helped Obama either. So far, we have seen exactly what he promised would not happen—-a RAISE in Health Care Costs for the same or lesser services. Much of what Congress passed through & our President approved will not even begin to take place until 2014.

      America will vote accordingly and most definetly REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER.
