George W. Bush became the most unpopular sitting president in the recorded history of polling — more unpopular even than Richard Nixon at the height of Watergate.
Bush seemed overwhelmed from 2005 to 2009 — over his head in Iraq, responding poorly to Hurricane Katrina, and to the growing gap between rich and poor. On the economy, his response was simply more tax cuts.
