Pew Survey: Americans Think Obama Less “Honest,” More “Incompetent” Than Bush…




Love it!

Via: http://washingtonexaminer.com/pew-obama-less-honest-more-incompetent-than-bush/article/2532582

It’s word bubble time at Pew Research Center, and that’s not really good news for President Obama, especially when compared to the one word Americans used to describe former President George W. Bush as this time.

The word “incompetent” is a popular word for both, though Obama just edged Bush in those references, 27-26.

Another shared word is “honest.” Here Bush won with 31 references, Obama just 18.

And “liar” also appears high on both the Bush and Obama list, with Obama collecting the most, 18-13.

Actually, when I see the term "word bubble" on these forums, CJ, you're the first thing that comes to mind.

It's not surprising to see a negative opinion of Obama in such a conservative paper as the Washington Examiner, but it is telling what the columnist, Paul Bedard, left out. Some of negative terms used for Bush but not shared with Obama include "arrogant," "stupid," and "aggressive." By contrast, words used to describe Obama but not Bush included "excellent," "intelligent," "smart," "hard-working," and "caring."

And of the words used to describe both men, the ones most frequently used were "good/good man." Those words were use to describe Obama nearly twice as often (34 times) than to describe Bush (18 times). So when you say you love the article, did you really read it?

That's his Modus Operandi.

And yours is to refute it.
