Bush does the poll "limbo" as SOTU warm-up

yeah, yeah, i'm showing my age... who but an old fart like me would even remember the limbo*...?
On the day of his State of the Union speech, President Bush's approval rating has dropped to a new low of twenty-eight percent, and sixty-four percent "disapprove of the way he's handling his job," according to CBS News.

"Two-thirds of Americans remain opposed to the president's plan for sending more than 20,000 additional U.S. troops to Iraq — roughly the same number as after Mr. Bush announced the plan," CBS News reports. "And 72 percent believe he should seek congressional approval for the troop increase."

is it too much to ask that, if he continues to drop AFTER the sotu, that he would have the good grace to resign...?
*Limbo is a novelty dance that actually originated on the island of Trinidad, though Hawaii is often confused with limbo. The dancer moves to a Caribbean rhythm, then leans backward and dances under a horizontal stick without touching it. When several dancers compete, the stick is gradually lowered until only one dancer - who has not touched the stick or the floor - remains.
