    MEDIA: Quick, report it! Before they plummet again! 

    So - so, so sad.

    So - so, so sad.

    Interesting to note is the fact that the media constantly harped on Bush’s “record low approval ratings” (27%, September 2008) while congress had an even lower rating during that time and for pretty much all of last year.

    It’s all about showmanship.

      As a member of the press, I can tell you that the sentiment exhibited in the title of this entry is very real and very common. ie: Quick, file this report before the facts change!

      Anyone have a source to share of polls describing consumers approval/disapproval of major media outlets?

    Hail T.R. – Bush swings the Big Stick 

    ON Tuesday, April 29, in a move that conjures up the bully days of Teddy Roosevelt, President Bush had harsh words for Congress and their inability to pass legislation that actually helps the American people or bolsters the ailing US economy.

    Since he so rarely criticizes liberal shenanigans, I for one am always happy when Bush comes out swinging. The Bruce is frequently frustrated that a Congress with such an historic low approval rating should receive such little criticism in both political speech and the media at large while Bush himself (with a higher approval rating) is blamed for any and all problems.

    *TSJ devotees will recall a past conversation regarding swinging one’s stick, which while referred to in a political discussion, was not a true example of TR’s proverbial “Big Stick“.

      I’m real glad The Bruce brought this up because in this case Bush was spot on.

      Devotees will further remember that the aforementioned article also made reference to folks who have alot of chutzpah. In this case we see Madam Speaker and that fool Sen Boxer running off at the mouth regarding things they know nothing about.

      If the Dems would loosen their hubris-laden deathgrip on national resources and allow safe exploration thereof, we would all see what a farce this so-called energy crisis is.

      That said, we’re about 7.5 years in, now, and I’d say its high time Bush brought the big stick back stateside.

      He’ll do well to start with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
