In the midst of a spiraling financial situation, two core measures of public opinion toward President Bush have dipped to all-time lows in Washington Post-ABC News polling.
Just 26 percent now approve of the president's overall job performance; 22 percent, another record low, give him positive marks on handling the nation's economy.
There are also signs of growing dissatisfaction among the president's base: 39 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of conservatives now disapprove of how he is handling his job. Both are new highs. And for the first time, a majority of white evangelical Protestants, 52 percent, rate the president's performance negatively. In each of these groups, even higher numbers disapprove of how Bush is handling the economy.

Since it happened under his watch, he has to take the heat, even though it's not all entirely his fault.
It comes with the territory.
Bush actually saw this coming but I still fault him because he should have been tougher on Dodd, Frank and even Obama, all who believed no reform was necessary.
