Bush’s polling ties Nixon’s.

Gallup pegs Bush’s disapproval rating at 66%, which was Nixon’s highest-ever disapproval rating, also according to Gallup, reached the week prior to his resignation. As Chris Bowers points out, this puts Bush within 1% of having the highest disapproval rating ever.

  1. Too bad Bush isn’t within one week of leaving- he has time to break that record.

  2. I would say the likelyhood is quite high Bubby, especially if something happens in ‘Yerp again.

    I find myself wondering what Shrub will do after his reign of criminal incompetence is over (aside from trying to avoid the stench of his legacy like the rest of us).

    I doubt travel will be on the agenda (other than domestic) as the threat of a WAR CRIMES arrest will become very real…unless of course he can get the UN to sign off on his new Unilateral International Executive Privilege.

  3. @bubby – didnt take long. Shrub sent Chertoff to the mike to lay the ground work:


    Nothing specific it seems, but the tourists…um, sorry…terrorists do alot of rebuilding in the summer. Thats when Lowes has the best sales…makes sense.

    I bet these guys fight over the red crayon during their meetings, henceforth know as the Lowest Common Denominators of the Round Table.

  4. On Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told the editorial board of The Chicago Tribune that he had a “gut feeling” about a new period of increased risk.

    Was he talking about the looming Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland security?

    U.S. Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., pointed to a staff report out this week that nearly one-quarter of the senior leadership positions in the Department of Homeland Security tasked with protecting the country from terrorist threats are vacant. In addition to the critical leadership vacancies, Thompson noted that the report finds an unusually high number of critical national security jobs at the department filled by political appointees.
