    This number is like time of possession in football. It's only meaningful if the country fucking does something about it.

    Garbage in, garbage out.

    Large swaths of the media and political elite have spent every waking moment for at least six years telling everyone how awful Bush is. And, I have to say, this administration has never cared much for the process by which one rebuts such arguments.

    In that environment, it's amazing his approval numbers are as good as they are.

    And what can we do about it? Enough morons voted for their fellow moron in 2004 so we have no choice in the matter.

    Except for, of course, those precious few moments when they united to advance his theory that invading Iraq was a good idea.

    It's entirely possible that "large swaths of the media and political elite have spent every waking moment for at least six years telling everyone how awful Bush is" because the numbers back up the allegation that Bush is awful.

    2001: Bush takes office with an $86 billion budget surplus thanks to sound economic management by the previous administration.

    2008: The surplus was wasted. Bush's budgets have run up a $527.9 billion budget deficit, 4 percent of the United States' annual gross domestic product.

    Under the Bush-Cheney administration, American real gross domestic product has grown at an average annual rate of 2.8 percent. In the 51 years prior to that, real GDP grew at an average annual rate of 3.5 percent.

    Under the Bush-Cheney administration, personal income has grown at an average annual rate of 1.8 percent. In the 51 years prior to that, personal income grew at an average annual rate of 3.4 percent.

    Under the Bush-Cheney administration, payroll jobs have grown at an average annual rate of 0.2 percent. In the 51 years prior to that, payroll jobs grew at an average annual rate of 1.8 percent.
