What do you like best about the Bush presidency? 19% say NOTHING!!!
34% say I Don't Know"


I just noticed this was from a month ago, so it's probably worse for him now:


CBS Poll:

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT THE BUSH PRESIDENCY?

Handling of war on terror 11%

Decisive 5%

Handling of war in Iraq 4%

Taxes 3%

Morality/religion 3%

What is most striking, however, is that more than half the country is unable to volunteer something they like best about the president or say they like nothing.

Nothing 19%

Dont know 34%



There was a clear winner when Americans were asked what about the Bush presidency they liked the least. The poll found overwhelmingly that the answer was the handling of the war in Iraq and its effects. Mr. Bush's handling of immigration, the handling of the economy, and the presidents policies in general followed far behind.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE LEAST ABOUT THE BUSH PRESIDENCY?

Handling of the war in Iraq 38%

Handling of immigration 5%

Handling of the economy 5%

Policies in general 5%

Nothing 3%

Dont know 14%

These voluntary answers reflect both the president's low approval rating (36 percent in this poll) and what are clearly his strengths and weaknesses. Fifty-five percent of Americans now approve of the way the president is handling the campaign against terrorism, but only 30 percent approve of how he is handling Iraq.

Even for the presidents partisans, the war in Iraq emerges as the number one dislike. It was mentioned by 23 percent of Republicans.

1. "That it will one day end"
My vote for what I like best.

As for what I like least, "Let me count the ways..." leaps to mind.

2. I liked the telemarketing Do Not Call List
But now I assume that it was just used to feed data into the NSA Blanket Wiretap Program.

Bush took the ONE thing he did that I ACTUALLY LIKED and made me hate even that one, SMALL gesture.

Compassionate Corruption for what it is, something our children have to learn on their own just as we did.

5. I had the opportunity to make MANY jokes about...
...the little frigging AWOL, substance abusing, Oedipal frat boy dry drunk fake-ass "Christian" coward's EVIL, MUMMIFIED, CORRUPT, WRINKLED, HELL-BOUND P.O.S. WORTHLESS PARENTS.

That's right.

Poppy 'n' Bar. Two scumbag "old money" ASSHOLES. I am grateful for the fact that BOTH of them will burn in HELL. Really, really GRATEFUL. Bar should have kept her knees together. Poppy should have kept it in his PANTS. Smile NOW, pay LATER, you FUCKS.

7. Gosh, there is SO much to choose from!
Eternal war all the time, the systematic stripping of civil liberties, the worst terrorist attack AND natural disaster in US history, skyrocketing gas prices, having the entire world hate us, there is so much great stuff about the past 6 years I don't know where to begin! :sarcasm:
