    Didn't seem to notice this during the Bush administration.

    What if we don't like our president, can we discard him?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Absolutely, but since he was just re-elected last year, you'll have to wait three years before doing so.

    It takes a recall election.

    In Sunday’s New York Times, John Tierney examined the delicate balancing act administrations face when throwing a lavish inauguration celebration against the backdrop of unsettling world events. Tierney wrote that inaugurations “become even trickier during times of war, particularly when television images of dancers in black tie can be instantly juxtaposed with soldiers in body armor.”

    Tierney must be confusing the D.C. press corps as it might be expected to function — posing uncomfortable questions to those in power — with the press corps that exists in Washington today. Because the notion that the television networks or 24-hour news channels would spend their inauguration coverage contrasting the scenes of wealthy corporate donors toasting the president while young soldiers and middle-aged Guardsmen battle in Iraq is wildly naive. During the nearly 24 months of war coverage of Iraq, many American news outlets have remained steadfastly allergic to relaying disturbing images of war, particularly anything that shows Americans being wounded or killed. So the idea that broadcast journalists would use this celebration, of all things, as a time to press President Bush on Iraq simply does not reflect the modus operandi of today’s mainstream media.

    Was it a lie or simply omission of specific information. You know, "You can keep your insurance if...."

    I guess it hinges on that two-letter word. This is not a case of it depends on your definition of is, but whether or not forgetting to add in the word "if" makes that much of a difference.

    More egg on face SNAFU than bold-faced, IMO. Knowing this bunch, they simply never did the homework and thus did not take into account the millions who had inadequate coverage. It's not like that would be out of their pattern of behaviour.
