Two years after Democrats rode Barack Obama's coattails into office, senior Democratic strategists are characterizing the president as a "walking radioactive disaster."  Ah, change.

According to The Hotline, Obama's approval ratings in key congressional districts are so disastrous for Dem incumbents, the party's strategy is for their own people to run away from Obama's presidency.  In fact, their own polling is telling them that Pres. Bush--the Left's favorite pi?ata--is more popular than Obama:

The advice from Democratic consultants and strategists is almost unanimous: Run away from the president, and fast. A prominent Democratic pollster is circulating a survey that shows George W. Bush is 6 points more popular than President Obama in "Frontline" districts -- seats held by Democrats that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sees as most vulnerable to Republican takeover. That Bush is more popular than Obama in Democratic-held seats is cause for outright fear.
