Bush Breaks 70-Year Gallup Record For Disapproval; Now Less Popular Than Communist Cuba, Saudi Arabia

Last week, The Decider broke a record for the longest stretch ever under 50% approval. And the hits just keep comin'.
President Bush has set a record he'd presumably prefer to avoid: the highest disapproval rating of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup Poll. In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, 28% of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing; 69% disapprove.
And some bad news for 100-Years McCain, who a couple weeks ago said, "No one has supported President Bush on Iraq more than I have.":
In another record, the percentage of Americans who say the invasion of Iraq was a mistake reached a new high, 63%, in the latest poll.
Feckless Chamberlains, all 189,000,000 of them. They must be, if they really believe this:
Assessments of Bush's presidency are harsh. By 69%-27%, those polled say Bush's tenure in general has been a failure, not a success.
Good thing St. McCain campaigned so hard to get Commander Guy re-elected in 2004. Those hundreds of campaign stops they made together will make for some great advertising, don't you think?
Anyway, 69% disapproval places Bush below Castro's Cuba and Saudi Arabia in the eyes of Americans. Given the record oil prices and that 17 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, that's pretty remarkable. Even Venezuela, led by the South American Hitler Chavez is held with higher regard than our very own Preznit.
Why there are not more calls for his resignation is a complete freaking mystery.
