The Bush White House

Legacy watch: "The latest Washington Post-ABC News survey shows that 65 percent of Americans disapprove of Bush's job performance, matching his all-time low. In polls conducted by The Post or Gallup going back to 1938, only once has a president exceeded that level of public animosity -- and that was Richard M. Nixon, who hit 66 percent four days before he resigned."

With Bush's unpopularity hitting record highs (or is it lows?), one wonders why the GOP candidates are taking so long to create distance between themselves and the president.
