That giant sucking sound you hear is President Bush's support among the American people evaporating into oblivion...

According to Newsweek, Bush's approval rating on Iraq is down to 34 percent -- his disapproval rating is 61 percent. It's the lowest it's ever been. In addition: "50 percent of those polled say the United States is losing ground in its efforts to establish security and democracy in Iraq; just 40 percent say the U.S. is making progress there."

I'm not one to place too much emphasis on polls (even though I've written about them here, here, and here), but these numbers are staggering. Bush, after all, ran for re-election as a war president, but neither the war on terror (where's Osama?) nor Iraq (is it getting worse?) seems to be going all that well. Again, what if we could do 2004 all over again?
