The nice thing about having a Democrat in the White Houseis that there is never any bad news...

...and definitely nothing about the President's historically low approval numbers.

Obama approval rating plummets to 37% but the AP buries it in their report

Compare with the treatment for Bush:

Wow. I’m sure the media will have a field day with this one! They’ll be announcing it from the rooftops! And I’m sure Wolf Blitzer will be announcing this at the top of every news segment today just like he did in 2006 when Bush hit 36% (h/t: Rush Limbaugh):
BLITZER, MARCH 13, 2006: It’s 4 p.m. here in Washington. So you’re getting the first look right now at our brand-new poll. The president’s job approval rating has taken a downward turn again, falling to only 36%.
[break] This represents his lowest rating ever in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.
[break] The president’s poll numbers are pretty bad, pretty awful right now, rock bottom as far as the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.
[break] The president’s Iraq problem and his new low point in the polls.
[break] His approval and policies now are at new lows.
[break] The president’s job approval number in this new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, rock bottom, the lowest it’s ever been.
[break] It’s 5 p.m. here in Washington where President Bush takes a beating in our latest poll. His approval rating at a low ebb.
[break] Our latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll just out in the past hour shows the president at an all-time low.
[break] His job approval rating at a new low.
[break] That’s rock bottom as far as our poll is concerned.
[break] It’s 7 p.m. here in Washington. The war in Iraq comes home to roost for President Bush. Our latest poll numbers showing his approval rating at a new low.
[break] Also: President Bush hits a new low in the polls.
[break] Now back to our lead story: President Bush’s approval rating now at an all-time low.
[break] As we noted, a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll shows his job approval rating at a new low.
[break] President Bush’s approval rating at a new low, 36%.
Nah, nothing to see here because we’re looking at this backwards. It’s not whether the American people approve of the president that matters, but whether Obama approves of the American people.
