The GOP is hawking a "I miss W" T-shirt as part of a new fundraising effort highlighting George W. Bush's tenure as the 43rd president. The newly pronounced fondness for Bush  snarkily coincides with a recent a poll naming President Barack Obama as the worst recent president.

The T-shirt was announced by the chairman of the Republican National Committee Reince Priebus on Saturday, just a day ahead of the junior Bush's 68th birthday. According to the party donation page, giving $27 or more will net you a "comfortable, classic, American-made tee" emblazoned with Bush's smiling face that will "share our message and help us elect principled conservative leaders to office."

Bush left office with the second-lowest approval rating of any post-WWII president, but history has been a bit kinder to the president just five years after he left office.

According to CBS News, Americans used to rank Bush as their least favorite president as recently as 2006, however a Quinnipiac poll released last week showed that he's now been eclipsed by President Barack Obama.

"Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. Adding insult to injury, among those polled, 45 percent said the country would be better off with 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Only 38 percent said we'd be worse off.

"Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes," Malloy explained.
