Popular Wartime President

All the current polls show Bush's popularity to be the the 30+% range (beating out only Richard Nixon, another "popular wartime president"), but the mainstream media can't seem to give up the meme of his "popularity". Apparently, most Americans have decided they don't really want to be ruled with some guy they'd drink with in a bar after all.

The boy king's popularity has fallen, even among Republicans. In a recent Pew poll, the most common word used to describe him was "Incompetent."
Bush's personal image also has weakened noticeably, which is reflected in people's one-word descriptions of the president. Honesty had been the single trait most closely associated with Bush, but in the current survey "incompetent" is the descriptor used most frequently.
