In his remarks on detainee treatment and trials at the National Archives today, President Obama made 28 negative references to the Bush Administration in 51 minutes. That's about once in every 100 seconds after you deduct for his time spent telling us about his own historical experience. This seems a little extreme. And some might well find this to be good and appropriate conduct for a president, but since there seems to be no abatement, and even evidence of an increase, won't the public grow tired of this and lose patience with less than noble behavior by the man who's expected to take charge? Trouble is, to point it out is to whine. If Bush had done the same the press would have given him no rest on that issue.
