Resolved Question: What did George W. Bush
Posted on 4 July 2009 | 5:24 am
Resolved Question: Why do people say that
In December of 2003, Bush still had a 71% approval rating. He remained a popular president all through 2004 and was even re-elected. His approval rating didn't fall below 50% until right around the time Katrina happened, which I never really attributed the blame to him like many seemed to do. After Katrina, of course, his approval rating fell like water out of a bottomless bucket. Still, no one seems to blame the Democratically controlled Congress for anything related to this economic recession, and no one takes into consideration the fact that they have never had above a 40% approval rating. Kansen: Who developed the legislation for the first failed stimulus bill?
Who developed the legislation for the failed massive bailout?
You can blame the one who signed it into law, but how can you hold the developers blameless?
The democrats that took congressional power in '07 ran on a platform of fiscal responsibility, but once they got into office, they behaved like a teenager with a new credit card.
Tell me with a straight face that that didn't affect the economy at ALL. Yes, a sovereign nation under the tyrranical rule of Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi people were much better with him at the helm, weren't they?
Look at the three biggest spikes in his approval. The first was huge, right after 9-11, he went from about a 57% approval to a 90% approval, then right after he declared mission accomplished, he saw a hike in approval. That third hike in approval came in December of 2003 when U.S. special forces captured Saddam Hussein. ROXX: EXCELLENT answer!! Why aren't more people aware of this??
The one thing I don't understand is that I always felt the Bush administration people knew what they were doing, but never explained or "sold" themselves well, which is why their approval rating dropped so fast.
That is probably why Obama's approval rating is still so high, because he "sells" his BS so well.
