Worst President ever

Okay, tell me something I don't know already...
A Quinnipiac Poll released today gives President Bush one more reason to be concerned about his approval numbers: Lots of voters not only think he's doing a lousy job, but they rate him as the worst president since World War II.

[...]

Bush was cited as the worst of the 11 post-war presidents by 34 percent of those surveyed between May 23 to 30, far outdistancing runner-up Richard Nixon, at 17 percent--and Clinton, at 16 percent.

The poll offered what has become routine public criticism of Bush's presidency -- a 35 percent approval rating and only 38 percent saying they are very or somewhat satisfied with the way things are going in this country.

"Bush's job approval numbers remain in the cellar," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in Hamden, "but he might finally have hit bottom."
Oh, I disagree...Bush approval numbers can go lower. Remember, it's hurricane season.
