    I agree with Barone that GW is not getting the message out, whether because of his speech writers or perhaps because he thinks 9/11 made the cause self-evident. It's past time to utilize some of the support already out there and highlight the good the troops are doing.

    Yup, Bush could learn a few things from FDR on this score. And don't we wish he would?

    Wasn't it Glenn Reynolds who said bush always get his act together after labor day?

    I sure hope so, we need him to save this ship before folks like Hagel and Kennedy sink it.

    They wouldn't be fireside chats, people. They'd be menorah-side chats!

    Barone is a Jew. Frum is a Jew. Levy is a Jew. FDR was their tool, and Bush is their tool. The concern isn't for America. It's for the Jews. White gentiles and Christians are dying in an insane war for Israel.

    Bush does a weekly radio address, people just don't listen to it, it is usually aired on AM channels and isn't available across the nation due to lack of interest.

    Bush needs to get out in the media's face and tell people what he is doing. Americans love to feel informed, in charge, and as if the President were confiding in them his plan. Clinton knew this instinctively and spoke often to the media to get his notion of the world out. This is how so many believe that Clinton passed all those Contract With America laws that were forced on him by a Conservative majority.

    He would also get more support if he would be willing to change his mind on the border issue, but he won't. This was the largest chink in his armor and still is. This was where the anti-war people got their first shot that actually stuck.

    William...Hitler was 1/2 half Jewish on his mothers side...to make such a general mistatement is disingenious to say the least! ;)

    It was his Maternal Grandmother that was Jewish, he was 1/4 Jew in a place that allowed none.

    I don't think Barone was suggesting that Bush should have fireside chats like FDR did, but rather that Bush should begin communicating more directly to the people to combat the opposition's message. FDR saw the need to do this and came up with the fireside chats as his vehicle. How I wish Bush would begin to understand that he cannot let the message the liberal press is putting out go unanswered. If people keep saying things, day in and day out, and there is no response, pretty soon you're going to start believing it as fact. There are good things happening as a result of the WOT. We should be hearing about these things to counteract the relentless negativity coming from the MSM. But we don't hear it from Bush. We have to go 'net surfing to find this information.
