Back in February a billboard was placed along side a freeway in Minnesota displaying a picture of former President George W. Bush stating; “Do you miss me yet?” The billboard created an instant internet buzz something President Obama could use right about now.

It’s no secret that Obama’s poll numbers are sliding south to 40 percent and his continued inaction with America’s worst environmental disaster to date has even ardent Obama supporters running for cover. A new poll out today in Louisiana uncovered voters in the state think former President Bush handled Hurricane Katrina better than President Obama is handling the oil spill.

Approximately 50 percent of voters in the state of Louisiana, including 31 percent of Democrats, gave former President Bush higher grades (50 percent) on handling of Katrina compared to 35 percent for President Obama, according to the Public Policy Poll.

  1. I know it may seem new but what it looks like is more like a trend. The same by the likes that weve seen in the past. I remember this was the case back when we were in the Carter/Reagan presidencies. When I voted for Reagan I think we all saw him like the Obama of the time, no matter how it went down, Reagan always bounced back up. He was just as untouchable as Obama.
