Another Presidential Approval Poll

The Obama campaign, unable to find anything in Governor Palin's speech that would help their case, decided instead to claim that she just represented another George Bush. Well, that reminded me that it is just about time again to check on the President's approval here. As usual, please stick to yes or no for the key questions. For brevity and clarity (yes I know, but I get to wield a hammer here), I may choose to remove extraneous comments, especially any which try to disrupt the thread or attack people.

1. Overall, in your opinion has President Bush done a good job, yes or no?

2. In your opinion, is President Bush doing a good job right now, yes or no?

3. If you had to choose between one of the three tickets, which one would get your vote?

[ ] Obama - Biden
[ ] McCain - Palin
[ ] Bush - Cheney

Thanks!

1. An emphatic "YES!!!" He did a good job, overall, with the rough hand dealt to him.

Susan G:

1. Yes, I see the difficulty he has had in trying times. Americans would all see the positive achievements of this president if the media hadn't started their anti GOP perception management support of Obama right after the '04 DNC.

2. Yes, without much help from either the American people or the GOP.

3. McCain/Palin because I see they have a record of public service and because I don't want my neighbor to pay for my healthcare.

bruce:

yes..Bush was a man for his times. I beleive that history will say that he was our generation's Harry Truman..he saw the true danger to our way of life..islamic terrorism and drew a line in the sand. Since the invasion of iraq we have not seen a single terrorist act on our soil or against our interests overseas.

my bigest problem with bush is the way he gave in to the liberals in regards to spending

langtry:

1. Overall, in your opinion has President Bush done a good job, yes or no?

Yes. I believe President Bush is unfairly maligned. I don't think anyone would have handled Iraq any better than he has. That said, I feel he was too much of a spendthrift. He had to hand money out to too many Congressmen in order to get them to do the right thing on Iraq, and that hurt the economy. I believe he is a good man, which I haven't been able to say about many Presidents.

2. In your opinion, is President Bush doing a good job right now, yes or no?

No. I think he's been crippled by public reaction on Iraq and the weakening economy. But it's a qualified No.

3. If you had to choose between one of the three tickets, which one would get your vote?

Mike G in Corvallis:

1. Yes: An A- in foreign policy (marked down for appointing Bremer), a B in domestic policy (marked down for signing McCain-Feingold and for pushing the prescription drug bill), and a C- in communications (Bush has had to deal with a relentlessly hostile press and has not adequately communicated the successes of his administration -- remember the press conference in which he was asked three times to identify his "biggest failure"? If only Tony Snow had been his Communications Director from the beginning!)
2. Yes: Given the hostile attitude toward Bush in the media, keeping a low profile now is a sensible course of action.
3. McCain - Palin. Whether Bush and Cheney would somehow be better in the abstract is moot at this point -- their undeserved bad reputation fostered by the media would make them ineffective in governing for the 2009-2013 term.

Palin/Cheney

Oh, and YES Bush did fine with what he was handed--overall.

Agree with the remark that he is nearly lame duck right now....and, I think, keeping a low profile, trying to not screw it up for the GOP in the election.

1. Yes They were handed... (Below threshold)
MF:

1. Yes They were handed a tough administration to fix up from the prior admin fiasco, 9/11, ... and did an excellent job. One item that impressed me with Pres Bush before he became Pres is he was straight forward. He said what he'd would do, and then when he became President he got alot done in the 1st 4years he promised in his campaign.
What an amazing thought... fulfill as many of one's promises that he made when he was applying for the job
2. Yes and No Last 2 years of any term is difficult. I wonder if there should be a 1 term limit of 6 years versus 2 possible 4's?

Doing what's right for the country as a whole is not always the 'popular' thing to do. So yes I thank God for Pres Bush.
I think history will look favorably on him although some of the media seems to display their opinions versus the facts...
3. Palin and Romney or Huckabee or Bush
I mean McCain/Palin
