The last two term president had a pretty good approval rating and that would be anything over 50% when compared to the current administration.

I think he would have been able to get a 3rd term out of it it too, but thats impossible.

Let's see, the last two-term President did... nothing. He was blessed with the most unremarkable times to lead in (little in the way of wars, economic calamity, or natural disasters). The press loved and protected him in a way not seen since JFK.

The economy appeared to be strong (at least for the first 87 months of his term). And when the dot.com bubble burst, they were able to lay the blame elsewhere ("irrational exuberance", Enron) since employment was still high (thanks to the economic policies of Ronald Reagan). The only armed conflict we were involved in was in The Balkans, and the press kept agreeably quiet about it.

So his approval rating was high.

I'll offer that "approval ratings" are more a barometer of how people feel about things in general than a meaningful measure of a President. While I'll agree there's some correlation, remember "correlation does not equal causation".

Not ture according to this site: http://137.99.36.203/CFIDE/roper/pre...ial_rating.cfm

Truman and Nixon were lower. And it only goes back to FDR.

A little late, but I'll add my opinion. I think Bush is doing a great job. I support the war, and I support most of his decisions.

Guess I should be burned at the stake....

Actually, in my experience, there are a lot of guys in A2 that don't like bush and women that do...
