I told you, it's not 1972!

Michael Barone: Bush Bashing Fizzles

Michael Barone tells us:

"This summer, one big story is replaced by another--the London bombings July 7, the speculation that Karl Rove illegally named a covert CIA agent, the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court, more London bombings last week. But beneath the hubbub, we can see the playing out of another, less reported story: the collapse of the attempts by liberal Democrats and their sympathizers in the mainstream media--the New York Times, etc., etc.--to delegitimize yet another Republican administration."

The rest of the article goes on to tell you what I said here. That, just as they did in 1972, and during the Regan years, time and time again the whiney left has done NOTHING but bash Bush. So much so that even when they had a chance and the entirely of MSM rallied around the Democrats to collapse Bush's reelection efforts in 2004, with bash book after bash book, Michael Moore, etc, they blew it with a stiff Candidate like Kerry and NO message that people really wanted to hear.

Moreover the the 2004 election was the beginning of the end of leftwing media's stranglehold over popular opinion. As Mr. Barone said,

"The bombings and attempted bombings in London have brought home to the American public that we face implacable enemies unwilling to be appeased by even the most emollient diplomacy. Yet, mainstream media coverage of Iraq has been mostly negative. But mainstream media no longer have a monopoly; Americans have other sources in talk radio, Fox News, and the blogosphere. Bush's presidency is still regarded as illegitimate by perhaps 20 percent of the electorate. But among the rest, the attempt to delegitimize him seems to be collapsing."

Yet while dying, mainstream liberal media is only in it's death howl and you can bet they'll howl louder than ever before they finally and mercifully die out.
