As Bush departs, the crowd bray.

Not all presidents leave office in such a low as Bush and Cheney. Indeed, Cheney leaves with an approval rate of 13%. Bush hovers, if I remember correctly, around 22%. His father and Bill Clinton left office with approval ratings of over 60%.

Here, the crowd can be clearly heard shouting, "Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye".

It really is an indication of how loathed these people became that, even as they left office for the last time, the crowd found it impossible to extend even the faintest amount of gratitude to them.

Bush will certainly go down in history as one of the worst presidents ever, the only argument now is whether or not he was the very worst.

He always said that he did not court popularity, which is just as well, as he leaves office with none.
