Comments: What do you mean you aren't angry at Bush?

Yeah. 54% of Americans think Bush did a poor job handling Katrina, and his approval rating hovers at 36%. Real unreasonable questions. Just because the media is -- 5 years into an Administration -- asking questions, it infuriates conservatives.

Think it was fun for most Americans to watch the media go to town on President Clinton for 3 years on Lewinsky, as the American public time and time again supported him and strongly opposed impeachment? Guess that was OK with you, though.

I won't speak for Felix, but you should know I'm on record as stating that the Clinton bashing (by cons and/or press alike) was a colossal waste of time. Bush's poor poll #s are based more on Iraq and foreign policy as, despite the 54% figure, most put more blame on local officials for Katrina (and the public is split equal on "blaming Bush" for the overall mess).

The press asking questions, dan? Nothing wrong w/that other than their fringe belief -- and it is fringe -- that the "slow" response was based on racism.

I would not condone or defend a trend of harping on the racism charge. I didn't see anything in this post to that effect. None of Reynolds' questions include any "goading" on that issue, unless Felix is alleging that because Reynolds talked to black people, that he was insinuating the racial question using invisible liberal voo-doo techniques. I certainly don't think you can argue that the racism charge has been anywhere close to the focal point of most MSM questioning, particularly that which is cited in this post.

It has been a "focal pt.," dan. It certainly has been inordinately covered. Even you have to admit that. And I certainly believe that it was ABC's intent -- hope -- that they'd get someone invoking racism in the interviews.

But again, that's me.
