Greta Van Susteren cites a new poll from Fox News showing the President's approval ratings going down (we're all shocked since it's from Fox, right?) and brings in Dana Perino to weigh in. Yeah, there's no one I'd rather turn to than Perino to get advice on how to handle sinking poll numbers. Her spin didn't seem to do her former boss a whole lot of good. If memory serves the press did their best to show as little of Perino as possible during her tenure as Press Secretary. Now Fox can't get enough of her.

Here's another poll showing who he's losing support with. Of course neither of them are going to give any honest context to all of the reasons why President Obama’s poll numbers are declining. We’re never going to hear anyone on Fox talk about the President moving away from his base, not holding the Bush administration accountable for their crimes or the Democratic Party being too far to the right. And of course the 24/7 misinformation campaign coming out of Fox News and their pals on the other cable "news" networks and right wing radio where we can’t even begin to have an honest debate about the state of our political process will never be brought up by the likes of these two hacks either.

Fox News, We Distort... You Decide

I'm surprised they didn't call him a "Socialist" in the poll question.

Can you help us out?
