Mission Accomplished V

On the fifth anniversary of "Mission Accomplished", George W. Bush is now the most unpopular president in American history.

28% of the American public approve of how Bush his handling his job as president and 71% disapprove (with 1% still undecided?). 28% is not the lowest approval rating a president has ever had, but no U.S. president has ever had a disapproval rating over 70%. Back on Mission Accomplished Day (five flippidy-flopping years ago), Bush's approval rating was where his disapproval rating is now.

"I’m thrilled to be anywhere with high ratings these days"
- GWB on Deal Or No Deal

A graph of Bush's approval ratings over the last five years looks just like a graph of the U.S. Dollar vs. the Euro over the same period.

On the bright side, it's now just 264 days until the end of an error.

I know someone who is in the 28% who still approve of GWB and her rationale is, "He's kept us safe from another terrorist attack."

Just a data point in case anyone wonders "what are those people thinking."
