It's beginning to look a lot like ... 1994

This is big news:

At 46%, President Obama's job approval average for the week ending May 30 is the lowest weekly average of his administration, one point below the previous low of 47% measured in April.

... as is this:

Riding a wave of unhappiness among independents, Republicans have increased their lead over Democrats in the preference poll for Congress, the Gallup organization reported Wednesday.

Republicans were preferred over Democrats by 49% to 43% in the generic vote in which those surveyed were asked to pick a party rather than a candidate. It is the largest lead by Republicans in the 2010 midterm election year, according to the polling organization.

That's all bad enough news for Democrats, but this is why folks on the left wing o' things need to start gettin' very worried ...

Congressmen Jason Altmire and Tim Murphy have previous engagements. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. and Rep. Mike Doyle are out of town on anniversary trips with their wives. Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato will be campaigning in Philadelphia.

When President Obama and Sen. Arlen Specter land at Pittsburgh International Airport today, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl will receive them by himself.

The rest of the region’s top elected officials declined White House invitations to attend Obama’s speech at Carnegie Mellon University this afternoon, their offices said.

Democrats ... in a state that Obama won in '08 ... are going outta their way to not be caught on camera with Obama. That ain't good (if'n you're a Democrat).

Oh, and here's how Obama's doing in the Land o' Wm. Penn:

No wonder Ketstone Dems are avoiding Obama like a dressed Thanksgiving turkey runnin' scared from the table of Oprah Winfrey. Said Dems and said turkey share one thing in common: they're gonna get chewed up ... and then some.
