Presidential News Conference 2

OK, I guess I should have watched the news conference, mainly because one can't really get a sense of what transpired from the press or reading blogs.

Blogs are like an echo chamber with reverb. The left wing blogs go on an on about how bad Bush did, how stupid he is, how he looked drunk. The right wing blogs ( etc.) seem to have something akin to a born again experience every time this jerk utters a word.

The mainstream media tend to float an idea here and there then wait to see which way the wind blows it. Once the dominant wind direction is established they all set their sails to ride the wind as long as they can.
