Bush Sees No Post-Power Legacy Bump — How Do You Feel?

President Bush said recently that Barack Obama deserved his silence. But that doesn't mean Bush deserves America's approval. Both George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are viewed unfavorably by 63 percent of Americans, a rate that mirrors their low approval ratings during their final years in power.

In fact, Bush's 35 percent approval rating isn't too far off from his all-time low of 32 percent. Bush hasn't been able to regain positive approval ratings since around July 2005, and his time out of the spotlight hasn't helped. At 30 percent, Cheney's current approval rating is even lower than all those figures.

It looks like not even Will Ferrell's Broadway show about Bush could conjure up some feelings of nostalgia in Bush's critics.
