  • Obama's failure will make ALL former presidents LOOK BETTER ....as he is like no other and no other has ever been as inept,dictorial,deceptive and evasive....
  • No. The rating of American presidents is not a zero-sum game. Failure of Obama will damage american image and all presidents will look worse.
  • No, I don't think that's possible. To do that he'd have to start his term with the economy blooming and run it into the ground. Then he'd have to start at least one unjustified war and kill hundreds of thousands of civilians while lying to congress and the public about it, and turn the greatest show of solidarity towards the US in history, into a situation where the US is among the least trusted nations.
  • Possible, but highly unlikely, since who looks "good" and who looks "bad" is usually determined by the media, the vast majority of which, as we all know, are always objective, unbiased and truthful. +5
  • Perhaps. But of course he'd have to fail first - and in a truly big way. The opinion of The Politico notwithstanding, most people seem to think he's doing ok. And given he hasn't been in office a whole year yet - it's a bit early to cry failure.
  • Not more than this answer can make your question look smart.
  • We don't know. Bush was in office for 8 years, Obama has been in for one year. Use some common sense.
  • If Obama were to fail it probably wouldn't change any views. Love him or hate him, everyone already has their view of Bush set in stone.
  • I find it far more unsettling that so-called "Americans" LUST for the President to fail, whomever it is. Is that what their sons and daughters died for?
  • Obama is hardly " failing". He could go to sleep for the next 3 1/2 years and be a superior president to Bush anyday.
  • A Benedict Arnold will always be a Benedict Arnold, no matter who you compare him too.
  • It is quite possible.
  • Considering that we've made it past 9/11 and no -easily avoided terrorist acts against the U.S.- were successful. (at least nothing foreign). He's already made Bu$h look worse.
  • ...sure do miss having a president who fumbled a few words but could actually talk without a teleprompter and told the truth as he knew it every time he spoke.
  • if Obama was in power for 20 years he would still be way ahead of Bush in everyway and I don't see Obama failing anywhere as much as the Republicans ever did
  • Dog shit covered in vomit doesnt even make GWB look good!! Plus, I bet the dog shit could at least speak properly!
  • Polls are dropping and his popularity is fading...He has lost confidence in the American people..GW Bush kept us safe, he just screwed up witht the gas...If we can produce our own that would have been an achievement...
  • @The Partys Over: Let me put it this way - how do you ensure that the President does not have access to ANY information unless the SSCI also has access to it? Are they physically present in the same room as the president at all times? What if, to pick a couple of names not entirely at random, Cheney or Rumsfeld hold a meeting with Bush, explain that there really are no WMDs, but then produce an official report to the SSCI that they have evidence of WMDs? Because one thing IS clear - there were no WMDs, nor evidence of them.
  • Their theories do not hold up to any scientific testing, they are made of paper and distortion.
  • Obama would have to defect to another country before he could make Bush look good.
  • The only one who could have made GWB look good is Sarah 'Barricuda' Palin and her 15 minutes of fame has just about ran its course.
  • everyone messes up. I dont think one is any better than the other. i know I would prob screw many things up if i were to be in office. America tends to forget that the President is human.
  • Republicans want his POLICIES to fail. This is because Republicans prefer limited government and low taxes (yes, I know Bush wasn't a holy champion of either). Whether President Obama looks bad doesn't make much difference to me except that people who look really good can often talk people into doing (or voting) against their best interests. . And by the way, Bush is NEVER going to look good.
  • I dont think so. GWBush killed thousands of our young men with his god given crusade to take out the enemy. I dont think Obama will match that feat.
  • I dont think there is much that could make GW Bush look good, so i would have to say no.
  • If George Bush was an idiot? Just a little Food for thought... If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes? If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock b y 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky? If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip? If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment? If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is? If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite? If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11? If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence? If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved? If George W Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved? If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved? So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
  • Are you high?
  • Yes. http://www.zazzle.com/miss_me_yet_card-137494893987182290
  • Will? how bout has already
  • Well, Obama would have to "fail" in the first place. Second, he'd have to fail in a bigger way than Bush did. I'm sure it would take ages for anyone to fail that bad! I really don't see how anyone could make Dubya look good...ever!
  • Hah! Nothing will make that happen.
  • Only in your wildest dreams. The bush league is easily our worst presidency by far, having locked us in two un-winnable wars at for years to come, and then destroyed our economy. This is the Bush legacy, handed down to Obama. How is that a failure of Obama?
  • After reading these answers to the question.I think the answer is even easier.No it wont make Bush look good as a President.I only know what I see around Me.Fact is there are many schools of thought.No matter your opinion you are entitled to have it,as long as is peacefully expressed.I have personal opinions of Obama,same as I had of Bush.I wont express them here.I answered the question.I feel than is enough.Hiya Payton.Is My opinion.Doesnt make it right or wrong.Just Mine.
  • I think it is happening already. Bush's willingness to go along with what was then thought of as out of control spending is looking like pocket change compared to Obama. His world apology tour didn't do much for his future legacy either. Obama may actually go down as worse than Harding, Buchanan, and Carter.
  • George don't need Obama to fail to make him look good. He is good with out this dufuss.
  • For many people, yes, I am sure. For me personally Bush was a good President. ;) 6+ ;) Now Carter seems not the worst one in American history. LOL
