CBS) The latest CBS News poll finds President Bush's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 34 percent, while pessimism about the Iraq war has risen to a new high.

Who in the world are these 34%? Consider

* that Bush approves of an Arab country with a terrorist past (two of the 911 hijackers came from this country) being in charge of our ports. This, in spite of the 911 commission strongly objecting to it for security reasons.

* that four and a half years after 911, Bush has still amazingly failed to catch the mastermind behind 911.

* that Bush's war on Iraq has been unqualified disaster. They never had enough troops and they never had a post-war plan. Now, Iraq is on brink of civil war. Most experts now believe that it will be very easy for Al-Queda to make themselves safe havens in Sunni Areas. Per the 911 commission, prior to 911 there was no cooperation between Iraq and Osama bin Laden. After we attack Iraq, there very much is. Bush is the cause for this.

* Two of Bush's closes allies (UK and spain) in Iraq had terrorist attacks on their soil. Bush didn't know a darned thing about them.

* that Mardi Gras at half speed is taking place today. It is another reminder at Bush's disastrous handling of post-Katrina. He was the one who appointed his chrony Mike Brown to FEMA.

* that Karl Rove outed out a CIA agent. He still amazingly has a security clearance. The Republican rubber stamp Congress has amazingly refused to investigate. The White House is supposed to HELP the CIA, not OUT them.

* He flew back to DC in the middle of the night to sign the Schiavo bill. A family matter which was supposed to be private and had been decided so by a state court was effectively overruled by Bush himself.

* He didn't care what the law said and decided to spy on his fellow Americans anyway. Who knows who he spied on. John Kerry? We do know that his domestic spying program has not led to any arrests. If they had, Dick Cheney would have been all over the media announcing it.

If 34% still approve of Bush in spite of all his failures, do they even care who is running our country? I'm sure they then wouldn't have a problem with Hillary Clinton, my two-year old daughter, my little dog…After all, they possibly couldn't do ANY worse.
