Skip to comments.Newsweek: “Bush Might Be The Most Isolated President in Modern History”
Posted on 12/11/2005 10:03:41 PM PST by Only Waxing
The latest issue of Newsweek featured an almost 4,000 word article written by Evan Thomas and Richard Wolffe, with assistance from Holly Bailey, Daniel Klaidman, Eleanor Clift, Michael Hirsh and John Barry that painted a pretty bleak picture of President Bush as possibly being the most isolated president in modern history. The authors referred to Bush as being in a bubble that blocks out thoughts, policy suggestions, and ideas that he is either unwilling or intellectually incapable of absorbing. Some of the lowlights:

I think the authors of the article are the dumbest in modern history, and given the competition, that's scary!
He's only cutting out the voices of those who are obviously wrong, like Newsweek. To them is like being cut off from the world because they have no doubt they are at the center of it.
Is Newsweak still in business? If so why?
OH My God! Ya mean we gotta live with him another 3 years ?!!!!
When do they run the next Bat Boy story?????
same reason F9/11 made 200 million. There are tons of idiot liberals out there who get their news from these manure trucks they try to pass off as legit news sources.
Newsweek: The ignorance of its reporters is exceeded only by the dishonesty of its editors.
Elanore Clift is soooooooooooooo annoying.
Don't be so quick to dismiss this. It is true so long as you define modern as post 2000!
How come Bush never listens to Jimmy Carter's suggestions on how to extricate American hostages? Why doesn't he heed General Murtha's advice to redeploy our troops to Okinawa as weekend warriors? Why doesn't he listen to Sheila Jackson Lee and hide our troops in the desert so the insurgents will think we are not there? WHY, I ask, is Bush carrying a 10 foot pole?
At least he meets with his CIA director.
Makes you wonder if their editors would have batted an eyelash if the story had reported that the guards had flushed a prisoner's bed down the toilet.
...Nothing dumber than the MSM pressies.
Translated: Our media assault on Bush is being reversed and we don't know what to do about it! We need him to try some of our bad ideas so that we can blame him when they go bad.
" Is Newsfreak still in business? If so why? " maybe George Soros is subsidizing it ?
Mr. President sure has my support.
Most isolated president? Isolated! That distinction belongs to Jiminy Carter! The peanut farmer remained holed up in the White House while American hostages were being paraded around in Iran. I remember the nightly news broadcasts, where they incremented the count of days gone by without action from Carter. Carter wouldn't listen to anyones' advice on what to do. Carter also carries the distinction of being the worst president of all time.
Nah, I have disagree with you about Carter. Clinton had 8 tho, I'm sure Carter would have exceeded Slick Willy given the same 2 terms.
Clinton is my vote for worst President ever.
It is most gratifying to live in a period when these *people* can spend massive amounts of effort whinging to each other, and convincing themselves their analysis bears some resemblance to reality, only to lose with increasing consistency.
"Eleanor Clift is soooooooooooooo annoying."
If being stupid were a crime, Eleanor would be strapped to a guerney waiting for a lethal injection on death row. What a partisan hack.
Aside from that issue, I never buy Newsweek, or Time.
As for news... it's The Wall Street Journal, Free Republic, Drudge, Boortz, El Rushbo, and my military friends (from an obvious military logistics perspective).
Har! Another one of those dinosaur liberal "news" magazines you only see at the dentist's office.... Who on God's green earth cares a rat's behind what that panel of masturbating scumbags has to opine about President Bush?
As for news... it's Free Republic.
Honestly. Does FR miss anything?
The only ones isolated from reality is Newsweak and the
other former MSM rat pack. Far from being isolated, it looks to me that Bush is being smeared every day, 7 days a week. He's the most talked about President we've ever had!
What seems to be isolated from Newsweak writers is truthful journalism, patriotism, respect for the President, respect for our troops, and respect for the citizens of the nation.
I took a free subscription to that lying rag in 1992. I canceled it before it was finished. They didn't even try to hide their lies and prejudices.
Then we disagree. I stand by my statement. Willy had too much sex on his mind and didn't get anything else done in his 8 years. While Carter spent his energy on doing real damage to the country in his 4 years in the White House.
What world-historical whiners these commies are...
Worst President of all time: Billary Clinton
Worst EX-President of all time: Jimmah Cahtah
Now, in the case of Carter's place as the WORST EX-PRESIDENT OF ALL TIME, everyone has to understand that this is fully tenured. He has it forever. No one could possibly be worse than Jimmah; this will remain true even if Billary wants to make a run at the title.
In large part, I would say no. However, there are occasionally some respondents who are less-than-informed, posing as experts, making dopey statements.
and than their our fr bruthers who cant spel ur puwt toogethr a kohere-ent sentens. an cant figger out the basik inglish languish much less the shiff kee.
Always the same tired story! We've been hearing this MSM dribble for a good 4 years now. AND YET, we still re-elected him after the first 3 years of it. Hmm go figure!
Rerun. Rerun. Repeating the tired theme, pushed hard by the lamestreamers that Bush is really dumb but ol Al Gore is smart. The anti-Bush, anti-American snobbed surrendercrats cannot even attempt to be creative. Out of ideas, out of conviction, out of power, and out of their minds.
It just must not be easy being sour on American, ticked at Christianity and God, simmering in a hate-filled stew of their own making.
Eat dirt dungheads and Merry Christmas.
Newsweek.... oh you mean Baby TIME. Anyone who claims to read Newsweek is lying, because no one who has read it would actually admit to it.
Is there any way that FR can poll this? 'Cause I think Carter was worse.
Under their definition, Winston Churchill was "insulated" as well. Heaven forbid a leader take a principled stand on anything.
Must've been a newbie to the world of the Military...Completing the Mission is the WIN. Always. No Question about it. A Civilian might not understand what the President was asking but a Private after about 3 days of basic training would know exactly (and most certainly a General)...and he'd either say what he needed (our Army trains them that way) or he'd say he'd get it done. It's not a baseball game....
Seems to me that President Bush doesn't suffer fools gladly and he's all about getting the job done. And he takes his job seriously. No breaks to an alcove or gossip sessions with secretly pulled FBI files on Republican opponents.....how refreshing... and how typical of the swallow appearance driven world that by not playing Tag with the Washington Elites Bush is viewed as in a bubble....well, thank God. Hope he keeps him there!
LOL. Don't forget Wilson was not only incompetent, racist, and an elitist intellectual, but also a Democrat!
Is Newsweek something we should know about?
Do all "professional" journalists have this grossly inflated sense of their own self-importance?
How can they possibly tear themselves away from their mirror each morning?
These scum! I wish I could scrape them off the sole of my shoe like similar substance matter.
And we should care what Snoozeweak thinks because??
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
The Left is really stuck on bogus superlatives, aren't they? "The worst economy in 50 years" (of G.H.W. Bush), "the fastest job growth in 30 years" (Clinton, of course), "the worst job approval ratings in 25 years" (G.W. Bush). Unless they don't consider Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon or Jimmy Carter part of "modern history", the statement is absurd on its face. Come to think of it, even their Prince (of Darkness) Clinton wasn't exactly the toast of the town during Monica-gate.
