Posted on 10/07/2011 4:31:39 PM PDT by icwhatudo
The latest Gallup Poll shows Obama's approval numbers hitting an all time low of 38% as he nears the end of his 3rd year as president.
For comparison, Bush's final Gallup approval number was 34% after his 8th and final year as president.

Surprised it isn’t more considering his race.
the media will print this in 6 pt. font on page 16E.
Is Wolf Blitzer breathlessly reporting this? I thought not. I have said many times that George W. Bush would get the last laugh.
What were the Bush numbers after his first 3 years in office? That would be more comparable.
If they’re admitting to 4pts > Bush , then Baraq must actually be about 5 pts below Bush at Bush’s worst. Don’t forget this was Bush after 8 years, Hussein hasn’t even gotten through his first (and hopefully last) term.
Imagine if the media gave equal treatment to Obama than they did all his predecessors? He would be in single digits now and they would have a nightly “Obama Approval” chart to show how much it is fallen.
The Hit and Run Media has failed to report any drops of Obama’s job approval ratings, but when GWB was POTUS, a drop of a single point in job approval was the top news story.
And as mentioned, imagine what Bush’s numbers would be if the MSM didn’t spend 8 years tearing him down and 3 years comparing Obama to God.
Imagine if Obamessiah were Nixon!
It’s easy if you try...
“What were the Bush numbers after his first 3 years in office? That would be more comparable.”
Gallup October 6-8 of Bush’s 3rd year:
Who you gonna call now Barry, Ghostbusters?
Don’t forget the libtard “fudge factor” of Gallup. Bush’s were probably higher and ObaMao is probably much lower.
By next year he will be wishing he had Bush’s numbers.
Pray for America
Completely agree. Had Bush's lowest number been 18%, 0bama would have had 20 pts higher than his. Darn Bush!
Simply amazing. The fool has his highest rating on the day of inauguration and then the moment he started to govern it went downhill from there and now toward the abyss. Excellent news.

There, I got that out of the way.
I’m sure every news outlet will be highlighting the day that BO plummets to 33%, breaking Pres. Bush’s low point...not.
They’ll be concentrating on some “more important story,” such as the improving jobs number, which is a constantly revised lie.
And former President Bush didn’t downgrade U.S. credit.
President Downgade Hussein did that.
In addition to the Leftist fudge factor, there is the political cover rendered by the media. The scandals are coming out fast and furiously, in addition to all the bad economic news and zero’s pathetic political acumen.
The Leftists are in a quandary. Should they protect zero even if he is probably harming their Leftist agenda in the long run. They needed a Stalin but they got a Trotsky.
It’ll be interesting to see next year if John McPain breaks party lines to endorse the reelection of his great Democrat friend.
Barky is a true leader. He has almost accomplished in 3 years what it took Bush 8 long years to do.
that would fit McIdiots character
Just shows that most of America not only don’t pay attention to politics but they tend to follow party only. These folks are going to be the death of America as a Republic.
It’s all a setup. In 2012, the waters will part, the skies will clear and Obama will be the comeback president!
If Big News covered Urkel the way they covered Bush, we'd be comparing his ratings to that of Air America.
By 2007 anyone who had a GOOD thought about Bush was afraid to express it. Now many who have a BAD thought about Obama are afraid to express it. That would account for Obama doing slightly better than Bush in the poll. I think you are on the money.
