"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

TIME.com: The Mission: Find a Way to Stay Relevant -- Mar. 20, 2006 -- Page 1: "In an acknowledgment that he needs to offer a more convincing message on Iraq, the President is scheduled to deliver a series of three speeches this month that aim at persuasion, a departure from his usual hallmark of repetition. Bush plans to describe U.S. efforts to develop new defenses against insurgents' improvised explosive devices and give town-by-town case studies of how his strategy for victory in Iraq is playing out. 'It's not going to change people's anxieties,' a White House official said. 'What it will do is help provide a greater understanding of why these events are happening and what we're doing to try to change them. We talk about the strategy oftentimes from 30,000 feet. What we're trying to do here is say how it is actually being applied on the ground.'"

I don't know kids; I'm not a strategist and maybe I'm in a bubble, but Time and the rest of the msm seems intent on something being wrong when it may in fact not be.

I hail the idea of the president trying to clarify Iraq more fully, but the msm treats Iraq as though no answers have been given. How are they going to report/pontificate on these newer talks/speeches? The DeMediacrats have done all in their power to twist messages and the msm part of that, had they actually reported what has been said; they would have a clue. Instead they choose to ignore what they are told and then play dumb as though they don't understand what is up?

Look at the fiasco that was Katrina. Was it all the Feds fault? No, but it sure deserved its slaps; perhaps we shouldn't have all been so ready to create a leviathan like Homeland Security. DHS is just another bureaucratic mess like the rest of government. The media fought all that it could to paint the Fed as the entire problem and race; and place no blame on local authorities as though they were picture perfect. The media spent more time chasing issues that were not there.

As the msm likes to chase ghosts; the president can change his message all he wants, but they are not going to hear him any better than in the past because they do not listen.
