8. You know that is a good point
I know that the Pew group has done those kinds of polls.

I have been appalled at how many Americans have rated Bush highly on foreign affairs. That kind of graph would speak for itself.

3. Surely that job creation graphic cant be right.
I know the Bush admin has been poor for job creation, but that drop from the Clinton era just looks too steep....i mean, thats a catastrophic, off-the-cliff drop....compared to the other charts.

Are the Clinton ere numbers correct?

6. It also has a drop off at Clinton
I suspect it's by president. So the Clinton number at the top is his total. So since Bush hasn't had a job increase year or quarter or whatever the graph's scale is, it's just a steep dropoff.

7. yeah, I see that now..the 'meter resets at zero', with each prez.
Its a cumulative total by year for the duration of the administration.

4. Another interesting plot would be GDP
I know we are supposed to be growing again, but I bet you will really see how enemic growth is compared to the 8 Clinton years and the first Bush admin...
