"Popular President" watch

Michael John McRae, writing at Useless Knowledge, says a number of things that I disagree with, but one jumps out at me:
Liberal hatred for a successful and highly popular President has turned the American brand of liberalism into a hateful and vile little group of malcontents; all screaming for resignations and impeachment.
However:
The latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, conducted June 24-26, finds that 45% of Americans approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president, while a slim majority, 53%, disapprove. Since he took office, Bush's lowest disapproval ratings occurred in September 2001, a little over a week after the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. A Sept. 21-22 poll found 90% of Americans approving and only 6% disapproving of Bush. In contrast, the current results represent the worst ratings of Bush's presidency. The current approval rating ties Bush's lowest (45% in March 2005), but this poll finds his highest disapproval rating ever.
