Second Term Curse

Originally uploaded by mwthomas87.
The Washington Post has an interesting graph comparing the second terms of recent presidents and the problems they ran into.

Bush is starting off with the lowest approval rating (52 percent) of any modern president with the exception of Nixon. And he has the highest disapproval rating (46 percent) by far.

I anticipate those numbers will only get worse for Bush as the Iraq war drags on and his efforts to dismantle Social Security get picked apart by his own party.
Democrats should not hesitate to pound on Bush with every opportunity just like the Republicans did to Clinton. They should become the "We told you so..." Party and constantly remind voters of his failures, screw-ups and countless lies.
It should be a fun four years.
