24

No, not the TV show on the Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox networkd

It is Chimpy McFlightsuit’s latest approval rating from Zogby.

According to the latest Zogby poll, Dubya has achieved a NEW milestone — his latest approval rating of 24% is an all-time low for that poll. His approval rating also ties the lowest score recorded by Richard Nixon on the eve of his resignation. Congress, led by the incredibly disappointing Nancy Pelosi is even worse — 11%

The shitty approval rating for Chimpy is even more remarkable because, for whatever reason, he has been able to keep the hard-core Kool AidTM-drinking base stuck up his skanky ass. Maybe the SCHIP veto fiasco has been the straw that broke the camel’s back.

from Zogby:

Bush’s job approval rating fell to 24 percent from last month’s record low for a Zogby poll of 29 percent. A paltry 11 percent gave Congress a positive grade, tying last month’s record low.

“There is a real question among Americans now about how relevant this government is to them,” pollster John Zogby said. “They tell us they want action on health care, education, the war and immigration, but they don’t believe they are going to get it.”

Can the Commander Guy go lower? If a steroid filled Barry Bonds can break the home run record, a cocaine filled idiot can easily break this 33 year old record.

Now it is official — the Worst. President. Ever.

  1. He truly is the worst president in history and shall always be remembered as such.PS: Love the toast comment. You’re a toast whore, too. That’s so funny.

  2. I will bet $20 that he will, in fact, go lower. And another $20 that impeachment will still be off the table when that happens. Any takers?

  3. His ratings would mean his death and our life, were it not for Pelosi’s meaning our certain death.

  4. So Cheney must be at about 3%. Not that he gives a shit.

  5. Check out Bill Maher’s speculation as to why even 24% of US might support the Bushinator.

  6. Congress is so low rated because they refuse to stand up to Bush.

  7. When he reaches 20%, he’ll consider that a new mandate.

  8. Speaker Botox and Beady-eyed Reid have managed to drive the approval ratings for Congress down to a level never before seen in the history of ZOGBY polling.These two DINO scumbags need to resign immediately. Reid, needs to go back to the senate and engage in more backroom deals with his GOP pals.Speaker Botox needs to return to hosting teas with the girls in her Pacific Heights mansion and her monthly derm abrasion treatments.How were we so duped into thinking these two scoundrels would do the work of the American people and end the funding for the Iraq war and then order the Articles of Impeachment for Bush and Cheney?

  9. guess it was just a matter of time. but like colbert said, this is a presidency on the rise, like the hindenburg.

  10. Oh, the humanity!Why doesn’t SOMEONE have the balls to impeach?

  11. I only wish that only 21% if the Republican House and Senate approved of Bush. They keep backing that asshat, no matter what. I have to wonder if he’s got something on all these guys.

  12. When he reaches 15.. SELL !!!

  13. HEY! That’s Barry Bonds. Bobby was his his father.

  14. thanks jdm — fixed

  15. I’m surprised that his approval ratings are now actually LOWER than Nixon immediately prior to Resignation. And that he is still even in office. And that he still thinks he is somehow relevant.

  16. His cluelessness is evident by the fact that he seems more cocksure of himself than ever. I think he sees low approval as some sort of badge of honor. Truly the bizarro president.

  17. He can’t go much lower unless he loses his dog and a few more family members.

  18. Oh don’t worry. I’m sure he’ll leave with a 2% approval rating.

  19. Hear ye, hear ye!From this time forward those formerly known as 26 percenters, the sheeple who bend over and say ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a for Bush, shall be called 24 percenters!

  20. thanks for all your commentsi wish he would go today, but since he aint…i SO HOPE he becomes a “teenager in love” at 19% or lowerand JUST WHO ARE THOSE 24%????

  21. PissedInNYC:I think you have a PERFECT read on it. The number could approach zero in the limit and impeachment would still be off the table.DistributorCap:I love your optimism but I’m with PiN on this one. In statistics, we talk about “reliability” and “validity” of a sample. “Reliability” is a test of whether a statistically similar result would obtain from a similar but different sample. I think the 24% is “reliable.” You might get as high as 29% or as low as 19% if it were taken again tomorrow. “Validity” refers to how the sample data reflection the population’s view. In that sense I think like PiN that 24% is absurdly low and if you gave me a six-month window, I’d go OVER 24% FOR MY LUNGS. The Democrats are caving not because they perceive Bush as weak, but because they perceive him as STRONG. I hate Pelosi and Reid as much as anyone. My choices were Frost and Dodd. But Pelosi and Reid aren’t stupid. They’re smart and they’re pros. They know what I fucking know. AMERICANS LOVE WAR. Full stop. This is mother’s milk to every American except the 50 or so of us who comment on each others’ sites and a few hundred black guys. That’s it. Everyone else digs Bush as much as they ever did. You don’t think Reid and Pelosi are getting the best polling data 5x a day every day on this? Come on. Don’t be that naive. “24%” is a story for the public.Do you need me to tell you what’s going to happen? I don’t think so but I will. Hillary Clinton will be elected President and will “follow our Generals’ wise advice” and THROW EVERYTHING AT IRAQ, have locked down side stuff with Iran, Syria and Lebanon. 500,000 troops. She’s going to try to WIN THIS THING and Reid and Pelosi don’t want to fuck it up. There are 4 candidates who want to wrap it up: Kucinich, Paul, Dodd and Gravel. The others are WORSE than Clinton in that they’ll keep the Iraq force as is, fire Fallon and take a run at Iran. Nuclear because the only alternative is a draft. Yes, that DOES include Biden, Edwards, Obama and Richardson, athough the Republicans would do Iran quicker and with more enthusiasm.If they impeach Bush or Cheney over ANYTHING related to Iraq, they’ve given up their chance to WIN IRAQ with Hillary. If that happens, how big a majority do they get in both chambers 75/25 easily. Forever. Plus, two terms of Hillary and probably one or two of her VP who I think will be Clark or Richardson. And THAT’S the PEACEFUL option, outside Kucinich, Paul, Dodd and Gravel, none of whom have a chance.And then you’d better hope like hell the US wins because otherwise, it’ll be like LBJ and Humphrey all over again.

  22. The Democrats are caving not because they perceive Bush as weak, but because they perceive him as STRONG. I hate Pelosi and Reid as much as anyone. My choices were Frost and Dodd.

This is mother’s milk to every American except the 50 or so of us who comment on each others’ sites and a few hundred black guys.you bring up points i never thought of — that americans love war — i dont know if they love war as much as they love jingoism and rah rah USA USA. americans are among the most nationalistic people on earth — and probablyt the most arrogant and selfish. that i give you. war is just another outlet to show our superiority to the inferior beings elsewhere (remember folks, that oil in the ground in iraq, doesnt belong to us, we are not fucking entitled to it, but bush has us convinced it is ours, or rather his)butShe’s going to try to WIN THIS THING and Reid and Pelosi don’t want to fuck it up.bingo — that hit me — i think you have something. pelosi and reid are doing the nothing dance to protect hillary — and get her elected. that is entirely likely.as for a US win — not going to happen unless they bring out the “big guns”here is my grassy knoll #2 — iran invasion/attack can happen in Oct 2008, forcing Bush to “cancel” the election in the name of security (just like rudy wanted to do in 2001).

  23. What’s wrong with cocaine and Barry Bonds? Those are two of God’s blessings. I’m surprised at you, D-CAP, for going with Jay Leno’s material. I thought you were a New Yorker, man. What happened, the AIPAC body snatchers get ahold of you?1) There was nobody who loved the white stuff more than the Big Dog and he was a pretty good president. But even if HE was straight, that wouldn’t change the fact that yeyo’s OK. They sell it because people don’t like it? It’s the only thing about Bush that’s human. Great line by former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards: “I hate cocaine. I just love the way it smells.”2) How did steroids help Barry Bonds walk 180 times a season? Or play a plus defensive LF at his age? He is the defining player of our generation and if he hadn’t juiced he’d still have ended up with over 600 HR and would have made a number of runs at a 0.400 BA.Very disappointing.There’s talk about your shtetl pass being revoked but I told the committee you posted a jpeg that makes excellent computer wallpaper, so I’d let this one go with just a warning. This isn’t censorship you have the right to express anything you like, but your shtetl pass comes with RESPONSIBILITIES as well as RIGHTS. One of those responsibilities is to avoid the conventional wisdom and humor.
