It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Ohhh MAN!

You almost have to feel sorry for the guy, as Sam says.

Bush is less popular than Nixon in final days

With 71 days left in office, President Bush is less popular than President Nixon was at the time of his resignation, according to data released Monday by CNN and Opinion Research Corporation.

The new poll, taken Thursday through Sunday, showed an approval rating of 24 percent and a disapproval rating of 76 percent.

CNN released a chart showing presidential "disapproval" ratings in CNN or Gallup polls for each president dating back to Harry Truman. This list shows the percentage of Americans who disapproved of the way each president was handling his job.

% Disapprove - Date

G.W. Bush: 76% - Nov. 2008

Clinton: 54% - Sept. 1994

G.H.W. Bush: 60% - July 1992

Reagan: 56% - Jan. 1983

Carter: 59% - June 1979

Ford: 46% - April, Nov., Dec. 1975

Nixon: 66% - Aug. 1974

Johnson: 52% - March, Aug. 1968

Kennedy: 30% - Nov. 1963

Eisenhower: 36% - March 1958

Truman: 67% - Jan. 1952


Borderline symptom of the day: surprisedsurprised - NOT

I don't feel sorry for him at all. I think my feelings can be best described as, "Neener." ;)

I feel bad for the guy every now and then, but then I remember, "Wait! He got tons of people killed on purpose and laughed about it. He's getting a lot less than what's coming to him!"

The fact that he's gotten away with so much, unpunished...offends me.

I have no sympathy for him.

How do the Congressional approval ratings compare? Last I heard thier's is lower then the President's

Not sure, I think I shall dig around and find out though, that would be interesting to see.

If I find anything, I'll post it here. :)

that's from a year ago. That one doesn't really work now.

I;m also looking for how people feel about their own congress critters, vs congress as a whole, because as I understand it, that's some surprising numbers.

Actually, I sort of feel bad for him, too. He's a hapless sort of bloke who got to play in the Oval Office while the real despots did all the dirty work and got to hang the blame on him.

Honestly, think about the man, the press conferences, the lack of intellectual curiosity. Do you really believe that he was the one in charge?
