George W Bush Remembered Favorably? OK, Sure.

In related news, Americans have shitty, shitty memories.

According to Gallup survey results released today, forty-nine percent of Americans now view Bush as favorable, with just forty-six percent viewing him unfavorably. I guess the bright(ish) side is, this is the first time in five years that Americans have viewed the former President favorably?

When dubya left office, only forty percent of people polled viewed him favorably, with fifty-nine percent expressing dislike for him. I'm honestly a little shocked it's that high. (That's a lie — never bet against America's ability to forget!)

Of course, Ronald Reagan now has a favorability ratings over 60 percent, so yeah. USA? USA? USohfuckit.
