I agree with you. The press corps is the worst.

It's a nightmare that he's in this situation as an underdog.

Perhaps though, it's a good thing in the end. I hope we are all right.

What!? Somebody must have slipped Chris some strong meds. He isn't himself.

The lasting thought of all that he spoke, that I heard, was that we will stay the course, our military will have everything they need, the Iraqi people can trust our resolve and our allies are appreciated for their resolve in putting their military in harms way. And that he believes he will not lose once the American people realize the choice that they will have come election day.

CiCi on FNC said she doesn't know why he doesn't have more pressers because he comes across strong. Not phony or canned. Very strong in the good vs. evil discussions and strengths of him as a leader.

The results. Bush is asked why he failed. Bush did not give a justifiable position.

This will sink him.

He didn't fail.

Did people ask Roosevelt about "failing" when he was fighting back after Pearl Harbor? This is stupid talk.

"CC Connely saying the President said "Tough" a half dozen times"

A just-released ABC/Newsweek poll reveals

37% of Americans believe he said tough 5 times
13% of Americans believe he never said tough
47% are unsure or have no opinion

they had those kinds of photos of Reagan on the papers all the time, and it only made people pissed at the papers.

I agree with the majority opinion on this forum...I think he won the election tonite, and showed why he is a leader, and why he will be re-elected.

Well, the 'stupid questions' and the lack of a slick willy to answer them is a constrast for me. I'm 30, and I'm used to seeing the press lie down for the president, except for Bush 1.

This reminds me of 92.

Lousy answer on the mistake question. That look of pondering is going to be THE PHOTO on the front page tomorrow, and it's not flattering. This is not going well...

You could hear the shutters clicking at the time; yes that will be the photo that is shown.

And, by the way, I think he did a bang up job, with this exception. (Ceci on Fox just said he should do more of these because he did so well, so strong in his responses -- her words!!)

We need to have a press bashing party someday. The guest list would be huge.

You're invited. Come one, come all to the D.C. Chapter's Sixth Annual Freep of the White House Correspondents Association (thread with preliminary announcement). Quoting from that:

Saturday, May 1, 4 p.m. to 8: 30 p.m. The D.C. Chapter's Sixth Annual Freep of the White House Correspondents Association Dinner. Location: Outside the Washington Hilton, Connecticut Avenue and T Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.

Our most fun protest every year. This is your chance to tell the mainstream media to their faces what you think about their biased reporting. You'll also be able to meet and thank those reporters who do their job like it should be done.

The facts on Iraq and the intelligence failures are now out there for anyone who is ineterested. Anyone coming to the conclusions that the Dims are pushing are not being objective. That's all you can do. You can lead a horse to water, but...

These Bush haters are simply very hateful people beyond the capability of thinking logically and objectively by their own devices and attitudes. Kind of like the kid who gets his a$$ kicked in a fight b/c he's all PO'd and is letting his anger control him. Same exact thing!

>>Excellent speech, average to poor delivery. Please, please, please, Karen Hughes, start having the President practice his delivery in front of a camera, and play it back to him. Although most of the speech was delivered well, there were times when it was choppy, and worse a few moments where he sounded hesitant and lacking spirit, which came across as weak, in a Carter way. Some of the body language was not as resolute as the text. <<

I think it's like making an Afgan. If there are not mistakes it is too perfect. He seems genuine to me.

This last guy is a piece of work.

"Lost a lot of public support in lst few weeks.

You can't communicate.

Have you failed to make the case.

Your points are repetitive.

What an utter jerk."


Not one of the questions had a basis in seeking "news", rather an attempt to see if they could make news by destroying his credibility, in a mocking manner.

The press is very fortunate in that Prsident Bush is a humble man. He is confident, strong and determined but he is not arrogant or thin skinned.

OMG, CeCe Connelly just complimented his performance to Brit. They must be ice skating in Hell.
