"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Bush seeks State of the Union bounce - Jan 31, 2006

Be sure to entitle story "Bush seeks State of the Union bounce," so that his rise in the polls is expected and ignored by us and the rest of the MSM/DeMediacrats.

"Support for the war in Iraq dropped, despite much-touted elections there," since we in the MSM virtually ignored any positive news in that part of the world or when positive touched on it briefly and for less than a 24hr cycle "
"as American casualties climbed" we continued to harp and tout the numbers with no reference to context. We also chose to mostly ignore enemy casualties and many times likely included insurgents/terrorists in the civilian body count. After all they do mix in and it's not our job, but the administrations to identify the bad guys. "A criminal investigation into the 2003 leak of a CIA agent's identity" since we in the MSM made such a stink about it and cried for an independent prosecutor. We still haven't come to grips with the can of worms on that one, but certainly have avoided any responsibility for running with national security related leaks, thereby anonymously damaging our safety. As of this story we still have Bush in the corner as the bad guy. "reached the White House, resulting in the indictment of the top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney" on unrelated charges of obstruction, not the actual leak. "One of Bush's Supreme Court nominees, longtime aide Harriet Miers, had to withdraw amid complaints from the president's conservative allies." Which should not be mistaken as the president listening to his base or the people. It should also not be seen as possibly a way this man admits error and moves forward.

'"Despite the strength of the economy, most people are feeling pressed," due to mis-reporting and misrepresentation by DeMediacrats. "Gergen said." "And despite the president's upbeat view toward Iraq, most people are feeling it's not going well." again due in the most part to good old fashioned DeMediacratic hammering away with only the negative and our lack of acknowledgement of anything remotely positive. "So I think the danger is that he overstates his optimism, that he's not in touch with these underlying currents."' we have created and emphasized.

Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, said Tuesday's speech will be "a credibility test" for the president.
"Will he acknowledge the surreal state of our" view of the "union and offer to take our country down a path that unites us" regardless of how much we obfuscate, and fight any impression that the lack of unity is due in much part to myself and other DeMediacrats "and makes us stronger," which just isn't right as we've worked so hard over the last five years to do the opposite. "or will he give us more of the same empty promises and partisanship" due to our twisting of reality and non-partisan histrionics "that have weakened our country and divided Americans for the last five years?" Reid said.

'"The president squandered the strongest economy in the history of this country" which only a short while ago we were saying was weak and ruined by Bush, when in reality 9/11 had a role in it, though we and other DeMedicrats ignored that reality "with reckless spending that fit right in with our MO, but thankfully had the "loser," to blame for it "and irresponsible tax breaks for special interests and multimillionaires," that we don't consider the correct special interest and multimillionaires "he (Reid) said"'
