"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

As I posted this I had to look at a picture of Joel Klein at Time.com and his latest; "A Bush Without Boldness," "In his State of the Union speech, Bush called for cutting our Middle Easteern oil imports; then came a retreat....."

This text has been added 2/8/06: I experienced some technical difficulties with HTML (which is technical, so I guess anything, whether a difficulty or not with regards to HTML Joe Klein had nothing to do with the piece I was griping about. I had said something like, "having to look at Klein's mug the whole time I was writing was irksome. His latest is a Bash on the president regarding his SOTU, saying in so many words that he was not strong enough. Klein is an example of what is wrong with the media. If Bush had gone too strong, WATCHOUT, he's coming to get you. You can't win against those that know better for us.....
