Bush's numbers continue to drop

This Speculum poll spells it out:

[T]he public is not at all satisfied with the president's handling of the crisis. Delegating authority to the appropriate and qualified federal disaster agencies has shown a clear weakness of resolve, and the public would have much preferred if he had spent more time kissing babies in Baton Rouge and less on the phone telling the Louisiana government to get off their asses and do their jobs.

Sample question:

Should the President have parachuted into New Orleans with a 30mm Machinegun and a backpack full of MREs and Evian?

48% No, he might have fallen on an innocent looter.
47% Yes, we want a president who's part Rambo and part Mother Theresa.
  5% Not Sure, but where do I apply for a free $2000 debit card?

It looks like Bush is really suffering badly in the polls. H/t: Dustbury.

Ha! Sadly this is probably not that far from the truth.
