"It is demoralizing to be a Bush supporter when he doesn't defend himself."

It's even more demoralizing when the Dems and media characterize Bush's almost total lack of response to his critcs as "a vicious smear campaign" and "trashing critics." Is it possible the media have the administration cowed into not defending themselves at all, because ANY defense whatsoever, even a stammering, "But . . . but . . . " will be characterized as a "smear"?

No matter what GWB will be slandered. Might as well fight back then.

You are absolutely right. I remember during the election everytime Bush tried to make a point it was called an attack or smear.

It is a challenge to manage this media. I notice we never get approval numbers on the media, must be really low.

I'd like to see Bush pick a fight with the media. He is afraid to do so though. I don't think his coverage could get any worse.
