It seemed that every time I have turned on the radio or TV news this weekend they are reporting how much Bush is on top of things, how he is getting reports from the front, having meetings, etc. Of course, this emphasis is just propaganda to counteract the damage done should the public understand the implications of Bush taking off on his weekly vacation immediately upon launching a war. They wouldn’t be spending time and energy reporting ANY of this if he were in the White House because they wouldn’t need to be trying to convince the public that it’s a good thing that the President doesn’t like to do his job.
Seeing the amount of energy they are expending defending the President’s laziness, wouldn’t it be more productive if he could have stayed on the job just this one weekend, and that energy utilized to some productive end? Also, there would be some time for us to hear some real news.
