There’s no debate that George W. Bush left the White House in 2009 as one of the least popular presidents of all time. Furthermore, Barack Obama was once seen as Nation’s great hope for change in America. Time makes fools us all.
In a recent study comparing American views on Barack Obama and George W. Bush, our former president ranked as more honest and competent than the current POTUS. Voters also associated Obama with the term “liar” more than they did Bush by nearly a 30-percent margin.
This informal poll mirrors the latest batch of presidential approval ratings. After last month’s NSA fallout, Barack Obama recently polled at only 43 percent approval – his lowest rating ever. In comparison, a poll taken last month regarding George W. Bush’s time in office showed that the American public has softened on Dubya with 47 percent of those polled stating their approval. This 47 percent is nearly 15 points higher than Bush’s last approval rating the day he left office.
As Bush’s…missteps as president begin to fade with time, his work combating HIV in South-Africa is showing dividends. One of Bush’s major acts as presidents was to raise financial and educational support for the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Today, AIDS infection rates are at an all-time low in the country, and George Bush’s efforts to this progress are being acknowledged. Barack Obama, in contrast, has only visited South-Africa twice during his tenure as president.
Who thought we would see the day where the American public outwardly wished 43 could replace 44? Although, after all the Government spying and conflicts with 3rd-world countries Obama has orchestrated, it’s getting kind of hard to spot the differences.
