    According to US News and World Report, when asked who the better president is/was, George Bush or Obama, 43% said Obama, and 48% said Bush! Wow!

      I believe it. Obama and his Democrat cronies had the opportunity of a lifetime to really make some solid, positive change in a center-right country on the heels of the Bush debacle.

      Instead, they just flushed that golden opportunity down the toilet. They have only themselves to blame for what's about to happen in November.

      I don't buy into these polls and last tuesday is a prime example of why. I recieved a call from a conserative republican poll and as soon as I answered her 1st question  they thanked me for my time. I asked them if they wanted anymore of my opinions and since I didn't agree with their opinion she said no. First honest response to a question I have heard from a repub in awhile. Just because someone claims to have the results from a poll that supports your position doesn't mean you are receiving all the facts. If I presented figures from a survey that proved 3 out of 4 people didn't believe christianity was a force for good, would it matter to you I didn't mention that the 100 people I surveyed were attending a Mosque? If you get to pick and choose which responses you count, does the final result really mean anything? To those who have no interest in the truth the answer is, yes and can I get an amen?

    This reminds me.  I can't wait until 2 November has passed.  And yes, this poll reminds us all... There are a lot of disenfranchizsed people out there.

    Hi, Steve! I wondered the same thing after the first read, so I had to go back and check. It was W!

    I also did some research on the magazine and found out it's owned by a liberal democrat.

    I think Americans sometimes have short political memories. Maybe people like Bush better because he's faded away and they don't see him on TV every day.
