The majority of Pakeha New Zealanders of course still think that the sun shines out of Bushes ass and the war in Afghanistan is not genocide but helping the under developed backward “rag heads” but it’s nice to know that we, the ones who know that Bush is a psychopathic war criminal, are in the majority. It’ s official; Bush and Cheney leave office as the most unpopular President and Vice president ever. Bush’s approval rate is 22 % and Cheney’s is 13%. Bush is now officially more unpopular that Nixon. You go Americans, it’s good to know that your still with us; the human race. that’s apart form the 5% brainless dimwits who think that Bush was the best president ever.
On Iraq, the public was behind Mr. Bush when the U.S. began military action nearly six years ago. In April 2003, a majority approved of the president’s action and 79 percent of Americans approved of the way Mr. Bush was handling the situation in Iraq – his highest rating ever on this question.
As the war continued and the U.S. casualties increased, public support began to wane. A year after the war began, 49 percent of Americans approved of the president’s handling of the war. In December 2006, only 21 percent approved of Mr. Bush’s handling of the situation in Iraq – his lowest rating ever on this issue.
The last time a majority of Americans approved of the president’s handling of the Iraq war was immediately after the capture of Saddam Hussein in December 2003.
Currently, 25 percent approve and 71 percent disapprove.
