The only good news about Iraq

There’s nothing positive to say about what’s happening in Iraq, except that it may be Bush’s undoing:

President Bush’s job performance ratings have fallen to new lows, largely a casualty of the Iraq war, ABC News reported Tuesday.

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll fewer than half of U.S. respondents, 47 percent, approve of Bush’s overall job performance, while 50 percent disapprove.

Bush’s rating for handling the situation in Iraq registers a 58 percent disapproval. His handling of the prison abuse scandal gets a 57 percent disapproval, and his stewardship of the U.S. economy gets a 54 percent disapproval.

The president’s approval ratings, the lowest since the war in Iraq, match Gerald Ford’s in the spring before his narrow loss in the 1976 presidential election.

The CBS poll earlier this week was even worse for Bush, with his approval rating hitting just 41 percent.
