Bush Speech Thread - Stifle That Yawn


by Steve

Yikes! Even Tom Shales of the Washington Post said Bush looked bored with his own speech, and pointed out that none of the major broadcast networks carried the speech, opting instead to run their sweeps programming.

The Post has already written the speech off, and the New York Times trashes Bush and goes so far as to recommend that Bush follow the lead of John Kerry and the Center for American Progress. My, my, we are a long way from stenography now, aren't we?

(P. S.- If Rove and Hughes were really at the top of their game, wouldn't they have waited until sweeps were over in a couple of days to ensure that the networks wouldn't bump you for "Fear Factor?")

What did you think of the speech?
