Make no mistake: Obama's approval rating now worst since Nixon
A new ABC/Washington Post poll shows President Obama's current approval rating at 43%.
Richard Nixon's when he left office was admittedly far worse, at 29%. But Mr. Obama's is the worst since then. George W. Bush's approval rating when he left office was 45%.
In answer to that billboard ad that popped up a few years ago, yes, apparently we do miss Dubyah. As well we should.
Peggy Noonan perceptively defines Mr. Obama's problem here.
