Two Minute Bush Quiz

Time for a short survey. Take the 10 question George W. Bush Quiz (it won't take more than a minute or two) and find out your opinion of the president. Do you think he is a great president, or greatest president ever? Or perhaps is he a little less exalted in your eyes? (Careful, the NSA is taking names.)

After taking the quiz, post your score and the quiz's comment, along with the score you expected. I'm curious to see where you all stand. Consider that with Bush's approval rating at around 40%, we can assume that the average American would rate him a 4 of 10 on this scale.

And yes, I know the quiz is a bit poorly written and (more than) a bit biased, and that there's no real room for middle ground. Nonetheless, my results came out pretty much as expected. The quiz said I rated Bush a 6 out of 10, with the following comment:

"You'’re not the biggest fan of President Bush, but you think he has done a decent job as president. You may disagree with him on a lot of issues - and some facts you'd just as soon ignore--but he'’s the president, and you'’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt."

Sounds about right.

Saw it in your info, took it, and like you I almost exactly agree with it.
"Your score is 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. You can't take much more of George W. Bush. You don't hate him with the same writhing passion as many liberals do, but you believe he is a smirking, arrogant, incompetent doofus. You're still scratching your head trying to figure out how American voters could have been dumb enough to elect him twice."

Geat quiz. This was my score:

Your score is 0 on a scale of 1 to 10. You hate Bush with a writhing passion. You think he is an idiot, a liar, and a warmonger who has been an utterly incompetent, miserable failure of a president. Nothing would give you greater pleasure than seeing him impeached and run out of the White House, except maybe seeing him dragged away in handcuffs.

Yup, that about sums it up.

Your score is 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. You think Bush has some redeeming attributes, but generally speaking you are not a fan. You may have supported him at one point, but now you have misgivings about the job he has done as president. You'll be glad to see him leave the White House, and just hope he's not succeeded by someone worse.

Your score is 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. You are conflicted about Bush. You think he's a basically likable guy, but are not sure whether he's leading the country in the right direction. Your opinion is subject to change, which means you're one of the quintessential "swing voters" or "undecideds" the media loves to fawn over.

Ehh, that's about right. On a good day of W, it's a 6, on a bad day, it's a 4

Your score is 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. You can't stand George W. Bush. The mere mention of his name makes you cringe, and every time you hear him speak, it makes you want to jump out the window. You are desperately counting down the days until Jan. 20, 2009, when our long national nightmare will finally be over.

Sounds about right... i didn't spend 3 hours standing in line to vote in college park to love him :)

True.

I'm going to make the bumper sticker "At least in Vietnam Bush had an exit strategy," and display it proudly on my car. Thank you whoever created this quiz.
