Not really news, is it?
"A record 68 percent disapprove of the president's performance, the highest disapproval rating of any president recorded since Gallup began asking the question in 1938."
And yet the MSM is trying to send him out on a high note!!

(CBS) -- The Economy, Iraq, And President Bush:
CBS News detailed the Americans' pessimism about the economy in a poll released hours ago; as was noted, only 22 percent of Americans say the condition of the national economy is even somewhat good, and six in 10 think the economy is getting worse, not better.
About a third of all Americans say they are worse off now than four years ago, and one in five say they are falling behind financially. Eight in ten Americans think America is on the wrong track. (Click here to read more on Americans' view of the economy and the issues most important to them in the presidential election.)
President George W. Bush's job approval rating remains low, with just 27 percent of Americans approving of the job Mr. Bush has done as president.
A record 68 percent disapprove of the president's performance, the highest disapproval rating of any president recorded since Gallup began asking the question in 1938. (The two closest contenders are Truman, who had a 67 percent disapproval rating in early 1952, and Nixon, who had a 66 percent disapproval rating in August 1974.)
He's EVEN WORSE than NIXON, huh?
Forty-two percent of Americans believe the 2001 Bush tax cuts should be made permanent, down five points from last month. Thirty-six percent now believe the cuts should be allowed to expire. For the first time in over three years, a majority of Americans think things are going well in Iraq. Fifty-two percent now say the war there is going at least somewhat well - up seven points from last month the highest number since just after the Iraqi elections held in January 2005. (Still, 46 percent say the war is going badly.)
This shows you either: a) the propaganda put out by AmeriKa's MSM, or b) the poll is once again a piece of MSM opinion-shaping, agenda-pushing garbage, or c) divide the numbers by half and that is actually the real result.
So Bush likely at about 12 percent approval and about 26% liking Iraq, with 69% opposed. That's how you read a NYT poll, folks!!!
Remember, this is a "news organization" that put out a poll last summer (at the height of the illegal immigrant amnesty debate) that said 66% of the country was for amnesty!
Fifty percent of Americans say the troop surge is working, up 20 points from a year ago. Still, most Americans continue to think the U.S. should have stayed out of Iraq in the first place, and 53 percent now say the war in Iraq is not a part of the war on terrorism - more than ever before.
Translation: Either the NYT is LYING OUTRIGHT, or MISSION ACCOMPLISHED witht the PROPAGANDA!!! The place is a segregated hell-hole of concrete walls, with a raging cholera epidemic and devastated services.
I love all the QUALIFIERS the NYT lays out, too!!!
Yeah, thanks for GINNING US UP for WAR with FRONT-PAGE LIES, NYT!!!!
And you are STILL LYING every damn day!!!!
Nearly six in 10 Americans think the next president should try to end the war in Iraq within the next year or two, while about 4 in 10 think he should continue fighting in Iraq as long as he feels it is necessary.
That means OBAMA WINS BIG!!!
