His favorables are slip, slip sliding away. Obama's performance during the Gulf oil spill crisis is getting worse reviews than Bush's on Katrina. The results of the following poll would be comical if so many lives had not been devastated. You know he is in trouble when even the American Pravda won't completely cover for him.

Poll: Louisianans think Bush did better on Katrina than Obama’s doing on the oil spill
"Devastating. Especially since it comes from left-leaning pollster PPP.
'Our new Louisiana poll has a lot of data points to show how unhappy voters in the state are with Barack Obama’s handling of the oil spill but one perhaps sums it up better than anything else- a majority of voters there think George W. Bush did a better job with Katrina than Obama’s done dealing with the spill.
50% of voters in the state, even including 31% of Democrats, give Bush higher marks on that question compared to 35% who pick Obama.
Overall only 32% of Louisianans approve of how Obama has handled the spill to 62% who disapprove. 34% of those polled say they approved of how Bush dealt with Katrina to 58% who disapproved.'
The big winner? Bobby Jindal, whose 63 percent approval (65 percent on handling the spill) is the highest for any senator or governor in PPP’s polling this year. He lost some of his righty rock-star luster after that SOTU disaster, but I think it’s safe to say that he’s gotten it all back: The latest is that he’s lost patience with BP’s containment efforts and given the order to the National Guard to start building a barrier wall off the coast to try to protect the shoreline. 70 percent, here he comes!"
