Oh, so that's it! He's not crying!

Can't Win for Losing?

Dan Froomkin of the Washington Post on his blog "White House Briefing" (snort!)

"White House aides have apparently been expressing their frustration to members of the press corps, saying President Bush just can't win with them: When he doesn't pay a visit after a disaster, he gets criticized for being heartless; when he does, he get criticized for getting in the way (and wasting gas). Sounds like the White House has a point there, doesn't it?

But it's not that simple. And as is often the case with this White House, the problem is that no one is asking the right questions.

The right question in this case is not whether Bush should or shouldn't visit disaster sites. The right questions are: 1) Does he fully grasp the human tragedy?; and 2) Are his trips helping the recovery or not?

Bush is obviously distressed to some degree by the devastation and the slow government response. Yesterday, he acknowledged that the region is "hurtin'." And two weeks ago, he accepted responsibility for the (unspecified) federal government failures in the wake of Katrina.

But the relative lack of emotion in his remarks raises the possibility that he doesn't fully appreciate the sense of loss experienced by countless thousands of Gulf Coast residents."

Oh I see. It's not like Clinton who could "feel their pain", but wouldn't in a minute invite a black evacuee to his home.

So Bush isn't sobbing. He's not wailing and knashing his teeth and throwing dust in the air. Ok, Dan...that's as clear as it can be.

Incidently, did you notice he's not bitching either?

Yeah, it's amazing! President Bush is actually on the ground, doing something instead of sitting on a chair sucking a latte and typing 'words of inter galatic wisdom' into a computer about a President's 'photo ops'. Or exaggerating stories, or even making them up, or 'photo oping' in the rain.

More and more we see, the truth is out, that MSM is proving yet once again that they have become irrelevant in determining anything of ....relevance.

Whether it's Maureen (haven't see a story I couldn't make up and better!) DowdDand the rest of the left nitpicking fuel cost for Air Force One, or his hair isn't combed right, or he slurs or whatever....

Hey! I got it. Just let the press ride in the Jane Fonda bus to all the events! Hell, it's fueled on chicken fat or something like that! As I said all along, the MSM should be taking the lead here and showing us the way and looking out for us! Just think of the fuel saved if Helen Thomas would stay off of Air Force One!

Come on Froomkin, sell your Hummer (Oh, Clinton owns that...sorry), and walk to work!

Come on my man, show us the way it is done!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
