Skip to comments.The magic is gone: Just as many Americans dislike Obama as do George W. Bush, poll shows
Posted on 06/13/2014 6:01:25 AM PDT by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama has ruffled so many feathers during his five and a half years in office that he is now as disliked by as many Americans as former president George W. Bush, a new poll shows.
In the latest CNN/ORC International poll, 51 percent of Americans said they viewed President Obama unfavorably. The same percentage of respondents had a negative opinion of former President Bush.
This is the first time in Obamas presidency that a majority of Americans have given the president bad marks. [ ]
CNN did not specifically ask survey-takers who viewed the president unfavorably why they were upset with him, however respondents have specifically cited Obamacare as area of dissatisfaction in other recent polls, like the one taken by Washington Post and ABC News in late April.

Except with 0 they have good reason.
...with the important difference that, as hard as the press was working against Bush, they’re working that hard IN FAVOR of Obama...
Thank the “new media” for doing the job the “old media” simply refuses to do.
Are you freaking kidding me?!! GWB is a saint by comparison. Much of his problems stemmed fom 911. BHO will go down as the first black president and the worst president by far. His acts against the America people should fit into the terrorist and Manchurian Candidate categories. He is the first president that is actually an enemy of the state who was aligned with terrorists that was used to cripple and topple the U.S. government. He will known as the grand deceiver president.
Conservatives didn’t like George, either. His opposition was from both sides, you see.
The drive by media attacked Bush to drive down poll results. The drive media builds up Barry to force up poll results for him.
Elections have consequences. Perhaps Princess Hillary will be unpopular after seven years in the White House, too. Or Dizzie Miss Lizzie.
There is one main difference here. The Democrats and the media (I know that is redundant) went out of their way to demonize Bush, while they form a protective shield around Obama.
Now is. Good time to be a Prepper. Things are doing to get real bad here in the us. When gas hits $8/gal the Trucks will stop running.
Except this time the butcher has his hand on the other side of the scale
With this universal effort year after Bush year, they were able to convince US our fairly robust economy and remarkably low unemployment rate was an economic holocaust and that the Ivy league Bush was a complete idiot. GWB's poll numbers were/are their measure of success.
With the one known as "obama", that same one stream media has bestowed upon US our messiah, not once, but twice.
The one stream media has not just aggressively ignored each and every obama misstep and scandal, but is actively aiding and abetting obama's efforts to bypass the Constitution and the will of the people to thoroughly transform America into a locked down, police state progressive utopia.
And even with all of this help, and a peremptory Nobel prize, obama STILL crashes and burns!
What goes up must come down...hard. Pride before destruction; a haughty spirit before a fall.
George W Bush dislikes Obama? Who Knew?
