When George W. Bush left office, he had the lowest approval rating of any president ever measured: 19%. He had also registered the highest approval rating of any president—95% following 9/11 in October 2001. He continues to be an immensely controversial figure, with his Wikipedia page one of the most heavily edited and hotly contested entries in the website’s history. A 2009 C-SPAN poll of professional historians ranked Bush towards the bottom in presidential performance (36 out of 42).
The George W. Bush Presidential Library Augmented Reality Project (GWB-PLARP) hopes that you will use the resources here, as well as sources from outside the museum, to come to your own conclusions and opinions about the presidency of George W. Bush.
