Is the democrat that wins the primary going to have Obama come campaign for him/her?

Obama has a 30% approval and not one of the democrats can do better than 28%?

What is funny is that I can remember flipping over to MSNBC on election night 2008 and hear one of the jubilant liberal analysts talk about how we could see states like Wyoming flipping to the democrats in 2010. I'm pretty sure the actual words were, "States like Wyoming will be in play".

Is the Republican going to have Bush or McCain come campaign for them, maybe Dick Cheney? What a stupid question.

hoosier_gary:

Probably. Bush, McCain, and Dick Cheney are still wildly popular in Wyoming.

2008 - McCain 65%
2004 - Bush 69%

It wouldn't be good sportsmanship to bring one of them in to campaign. That would be like a coach stacking the scoreboard, wouldn't it?

The previous senate election went 75% for the republican. But don't give up hope.

Did I just read hoosier_gary explaining how popular Bush is by citing a 2004 poll?
Wow.
I guess in his world, bell-bottom jeans NEVER went out of style, and the USSR is still in existence as "The Evil Empire."

This is Wyoming we're talking about, Mr. Mark.

I guarantee that the republican candidate in Wyoming would gladly welcome Bush to come campaign.

Don't think we'll see in campaigning there in L.A., though. He might not be as popular as Obama there but probably getting close.

Bush has already stated that he will campaign this fall for some candidates. It will probably be more of a fund-raising roll than stump speeches.

"Bush has already stated that he will campaign this fall for some candidates."

That was basically the role Reagan played until about 1993 when his health became more of a problem. Being a past president means you still have financial connections.

cheney is from wyoming. I would bet he's very popular there.

I miss my bell bottoms. I had a cool pair of bright yellow "super bells" brushed-cotton hip-huggers with a green frog on the back pocket.

I know it's hard for some Bush-bashers to understand that not everyone despises him as much as they do - especially when I can't figure out how anyone could possibly support Obama. I'm sure someone in a liberal area can't even begin to comprehend life out in the real world of the vast outdoors like Wyoming. It's like the two aren't even part of the same country.

Sometime during 08 GOP convention, I heard a discussion on wingnut radio about Bush/Cheney's absence. This one dude predicted that Bush will be met with thunderous applause and hero's welcome at the 2012 convention. I think he even predicted that Bush will be the keynote speaker.

Not sure about the keynote speech, but Bush will definitely attend in 2012 and be very warmly received. Bush/Cheney favorability has already risen significantly since they left office and will continue to rise. I think Bush for sure will be into net positive territory by 2012.

I look forward to that day for no other reason than for Obama to stop blaming Bush for everything. That's the day it stops - when Bush's approval turns positive again.

How long did it take for Carter? 10 years? More? Is he even above water yet?

I'm not convinced it will happen with Bush by 2012, though. Not when the majority in the media still have that burning blind seething hatred. If they see his popularity rising they'll come out with some blistering attack - even if they have to make it up like Dan Rather did.

Speaking of Bush and popularity, have people seen a picture of this billboard popping up along highways?

But that would mean he would actually have to figure out a remedy for the current problems himself. He would just rather vote present and keep his myrmidons from thinking that he may not be up to the task intellectually or in leadership.

Todays commobn-sense poll on Obama Approval Approve 46.3% Disapprove 45.7% almost identical to Gallup's numbers.
I continue to be amused by the "intellectual giants" on this sight who wish to comment on whether Obama is up to the task intellectually.

I think people are finally waking up. They are starting to understand that the president has almost no power compared to congress. They swung against Bush, elected Obama, and now realize that they made things even worse by making the democrats in congress even more powerful.

What is congress approval right now? 20%?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go ahead and tell me that republicans are just as unpopular as democrats. It doesn't matter. People who want to change congress aren't going to go vote for a democrat.

This is the year of the triple witching brew. We will go into the mid-term election with a president with an approval in the mid 40's, unemployment near 10%, and congressional approval in the upper teens. And yet these liberal pundits can say with a straight face that it might not be a bad year for the party in control?

Do people really think that 2 years later a massive group of democrats are going to come out to vote because they still blame the economy on Bush after 2 years of massive intervention by the democrats? I know Obama would like to think that, but does anyone else buy that?

Louis,

As well as I continue to be amused by people who just accept the mainstream medias propaganda that Obama is some sort of genius- almost a demi-God of intelligence- that is too above us common-folk to be fully understood.

"I heard a discussion on wingnut radio about Bush/Cheney's absence."

Not surprising, since talk radio listeners are composed of the 30% of people who still approved of Bush.

That would be like having Carter speak at the 1984 convention, or George H.W. Bush at the 1996 one.

I see no reason why republicans would want to re-animate Bush's failures, unless Iraq and Afghanistan become the equivalents of Luxembuorg and Belgium by 2012. I don't recall George H.W. Bush being present at GOP conventions. I doubt W. will do much although he is still popular with the evangelicals...he'll probably give a speech in the early days not covered on primetime.

Bush was not a good President. It's time my fellow conservatives stop defending him. He was a big government Republican that engaged in a reckless foreign policy. The best thing we can all do (especially the so-called conservative movement) is move on and act like it didn't happen. I give the man credit for two things alone- appointing Roberts and Alito to the SCOTUS and having the guts to surge the troops in Iraq and save that from being a complete disaster (although the decision to invade Iraq in the first place was completely wrong and reckless). Other than those two things, he was not a good President. His father was far better.

Aaron_in_TX:

George H.W. Bush was a much better president than his son but not a very good head of party nor a good campaigner. W was better at that aspect of politics, particularly his appeal to religious conservatives.

I was just watching a PBS program on the Berlin Wall and they showed some of G.H.W. Bush's speeches. The man was awkward. No wonder he lost to Clinton.

Funny that the press (and many conservatives) criticized him for lack of emotion after the Berlin Wall fell. As if it would have been better for him to dance on the rubble singing 'We Are the Champions.'
