Nobody Likes Him

A frequent refrain during the height of impeachment when the press needed to justify the whole thing was that while Clinton had high job approval ratings, he had low personal favorability ratings which meant that everyone thought he was the icky horrible bad man that they keept saying he was.

While Clinton's favorability ratings during that time period were lower than his job approval, they're pretty much comparable to where Bush has been for the past few months.

With Clinton we were told this meant people thought he was the ickiest person ever. With Bush we're told by people like Matthews:

Everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs.
