"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
"the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts." - George Orwell

CBS News Bush Speech: How Did It Go Over? February 1, 2006�09:35:01

I was one of the 734 people that took this poll last night, so unfortunately I missed a portion of the reaction to the speech.

Overall, it was a fairly fair poll as far as polls go, but you have to love how the response data is used. One of the many things I dislike about polls is you have to pick answers from the choices. One that always and has always tweaked me is when Iraq and the War on Terror are separate choices; and of course of the choices you are only supposed to pick one.

Question: If the MSM chooses to ignore that Iraq is part of the greater War on Terror, how can one expect them accurately portray reality?

There are those that don't believe the two are related; the media should not be one of them. If they make a judgement (when don't they), they stick to it like any partisan politician would. It strikes me as more than likely that covering issues from one point of view rather both or all leaves too much room for inaccuracy; which is pretty much why so few people really know what is going on out there.
