Bush's approval rating was 22 percent.
"WSJ/ABC Poll: President Obama's Approval Rating in his 5th Year is the Lowest Rating Ever Since Richard Nixon
December 17, 2013 1:57 PM
President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.

U.S. President Barack Obama meets with newly-elected mayors about job creation in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington, December 13, 2013.
Obama's approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50%-- with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.

The brutal numbers underscore what has been something of a lost year for the President. His approval ratings have been plunging recently as a result of the botched implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In the Washington Post/ABC poll, only 34% approve of how Obama is handling his signature health law's implementation. "

That's what's known as apples to apples. Obama has another three years to bottom out....

Obama has also been hit by the damage of Washington's recent fiscal battles, including the 16-day federal government shutdown. His administration also experienced a number of setbacks throughout the year -- the controversy over some of the National Security Agency's surveillance practices, the debate over military intervention in Syria, the controversy over the IRS' targeting of certain organizations for more scrutiny, and more."

That's wha's known as apples to apples....Obama has three more years to bottom out...

WASHINGTON, D.C.-- With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives engaged in a tense, government-shuttering budgetary standoff against a Democratic president and Senate, the Republican Party is now viewed favorably by 28% of Americans, down from 38% in September. This is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992.

The Democratic Party also has a public image problem -- although not on the same elephantine scale as that of the Republican Party -- with 43% viewing the Democratic Party favorably, down four percentage points from last month.

More than six in 10 Americans (62%) now view the GOP unfavorably, a record high. By comparison, nearly half of Americans (49%) view the Democratic Party unfavorably.

We have millions of Southerners who still can't accept the
fact that the South lost the Civil War and that there is an
African American family living in the White House.

It aint about hating Obama. It's hating the tyranical unconstitutional changes he's trying to cram down the throats of everyday American folk. Changes that he and his lackies voted themselves exempt from the rest of us have no choice but to pay for. It's about all the outright lies, the corrupt in your face arrogence, the DC versus the rest of the country mentality. It's about freedom. Freedom from unchecked government oppression. That flag is going to fly more and more as long as the Captain keeps steering this ship down the course he has chosen.

Liberals prefer trickle up poverty.

Liberals destroy the middle class with taxes they say will only affect the rich.
