It's all the media's fault
The silence from the Republican noise machine has been deafening this week in the wake of the updated CBS News poll that indicates president Bush is still stuck with an embarrassing 34 percent job approval rating; unchanged since last month. You'll recall that on Feb. 28, when CBS released polling data that showed Bush for the first time dropping to 34 percent, right-wingers, especially online, went bonkers, screaming how the always-liberal CBS had rigged the survey because its pollsters had contacted too many Democrats which meant the results were bogus, which meant Bush wasn't really unpopular.
Off on a debunk fest and anointing themselves polling experts, Ankle Biting Pundits derided the survey as the "latest MSM garbage poll," Fox News' Brit Hume went on the air to talk down the CBS poll, while the always excitable partisans at NewsBusters.org announced the Feb. 28 poll was "slanted." (All, btw, have remained mum in the wake of the follow-up CBS poll, which confirmed the Feb. 28 findings.) It was the usual right-wing tactic, in which bad news for Bush was immediately painted as bogus, phony and purposefully misleading.

Bush: The Presidential Disaster continues!
Here's what I want to know: when are these big polls going to start asking about impeachment?
Isn't it about time they started asking that question?
One could make one helluva case for that now, couldn't they?
I see that Josh Marshall is now saying what I've been saying. He thinks the 20s are coming.
I disagree with Josh about impeachment, however. If any president ever deserved it, W does.
