64岁的共和党人布什被昵称为Dubya(译者注:布什姓名中W的谐称,此昵称用于嘲讽小布什的德克萨斯口音。因为小布什经常将W发音为“dubya”))。颇具公信力的美国民意调查机构盖洛普公布的民调结果显示,小布什被视为近50年来最不受欢迎的在世美国总统。小布什在任期间曾发动反恐战争,在他任期内还爆发了金融危机。
The 64-year-old Republican nicknamed Dubya, who took America to war against terrorism, and under whose watch the financial downfall occurred, was labelled the most unpopular living leader of the last 50 years in the US by respected pollsters Gallup.
美国第43届总统、前总统老布什之子小布什因重大场合的失态而臭名远扬,在执政8年间,他的丑态经常被人模仿。

2004年的总统大选中,小布什击败对手约翰•克里,再次以微弱优势胜出。在白宫的第二任期内,这位德州牛仔的支持率开始急剧下降。
And in 2004 he was re-elected after another narrow victory, this time over John Kerry, and during his second term in the White House the Texas man's popularity plummeted.
小布什还因为处理卡特里娜飓风反应迟缓饱受批评,发生在5年前的这场飓风使新奥尔良蒙受巨大损失,导致1836人遇难,损失达900亿美元,是美国历史上造成损失最大的飓风。
He was roundly criticised for his slow reaction to dealing with Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans five years ago. With $90billion to pay in damages and 1,836 dead, it was the costliest hurricane in US history.
