New poll finds that Bush is seen as more competent than Obama

Posted by: ST on June 6, 2014 at 4:27 pm


This should start your weekend off on the right note. ;) Via the Washington Post:

A majority of voters say the Obama administration is less competent than Bill Clinton’s and a plurality say it is less competent than George W. Bush’s according to a new Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Sixty-eight percent say the Obama administration is less competent that the Clinton administration. Forty-eight percent say it is less competent than Bush’s, compared to 42 percent who say it is more competent. Seven percent judge Obama’s and Bush’s the same.

Fifty-five percent say that the Obama administration has made the country weaker; 35 percent say his administration has made it stronger.

You have to laugh at this. Liberals will laugh for different reasons – because it’s a Fox poll and therefore will be deemed by them as “not credible”, but they’re in denial about how most Americans view this administration anyway – regardless of comparisons of President Obama to George W. Bush.

Granted, time softens many people on their opinions of the legacies of most former Presidents, and I’m sure some of that is at play here.  But think about the considerable amount of time that the Obama administration spends blaming President Bush for the current ills our country faces – and his inability to “fix” them all, and consider the terrible week Team Obama has had all around over the controversy surrounding the “prisoner swap” of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five high level Taliban terrorists at Gitmo. And then imagine their reaction to this poll. LOL.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall. :))

    For all his flaws, Clinton ran a tight ship. They were organized and ready to kill at a moments notice anyone and anything that got in their way. They were ruthless and they were orgainzed.

    Bush was organized but he never responded to his critics. How people got away with bashing him over Katrina when the response was a record best for FEMA shows his lack of effort and that makes him look more incompetent than he actually was.

    I am in no way a Bush supporter. His many many betrayals of his base (Amnesty, Harriet Meyers, Compean and Ramos, spending, spending, spending, spending) was a travesty. But he was a lot more competent that people were allowed to believe.

    Obama appears imcompetent but he is not. He is crafty as heck. Incompetence does not get the Obamacare passed. Incompetence does not get the spending bills passed that he was able to get away with. He’s evil. He’s a socialist and doesn’t care who he hurts to bring that about. But he is not incompetent. He just appears to be.

    The events of 9/11 can be laid squarely at the feet of Clinton, the “Unabanger”. He had multiple opportunities to take out bin Laden, once three times in a 36-hour period, and passed on all of them.

    By the same token Bush does not quarrel with critics, he also does not trumpet his many acts of decency and gallantry but neither does the media. He visited the wounded in the hospital after the latest Ft. Hood shooting incident until Obhammud ordered him removed. Obhammud never visited the hospital, just the cameras.

    This lousy Marplot-in-Chief with which we are saddled is the only chief executive in this nation’s history that treats a microphone as a phallic symbol. And don’t get me started on the prurient way he mauled Mrs. Bergdahl in the Rose Garden.

    Not disagreeing with you Drew. Just saying that Clinton ran a tight ship ready to kill anyone who didn’t tow the line (or is it toe?) Anyone who criticized him was immediately assaulted all barrels and destroyed. That gave them the look of competence that Bush didn’t have and that Obama used to but doesn’t.

    Obama tries to destroy his critics but the ONLY play he has is the race card and that gets old so he looks out of touch and not competent. That poll is all about appearances. Not substance.
