    Well why don't you then answer my question? What exactly in my original post indicates I am hyper partisan? Please be definitive in your answer because I don't think you understand what the term means at all.

And it is from this that I say he isn't criticizing Obama out of self preservation. The media would draw and quarter him in round the clock, 24 hour news cycle fashion. Everyone knows this. And let's not forget, GWB was abandoned by his own party out of political expediency. That has to sting. Bush has no motivation to get involved. I don't think it has anything to do with his principles.

    These are all just opinions. I appreciate yours, but disagree with it.
    Just as I disagree with your stated opinion.

    A confident Bush is rested and ready for his stretch runABOARD AIR FORCE ONE...

    "They've seen me under trying times. They've seen me weep. They've seen me laugh. They've seen me hug. They've seen me make decisions," he said. "And I believe they're comfortable with the fact that they know I'm not going to shift principles or shift positions based upon polls and focus groups. They see a leader."
    ...
    In keeping with the Bush leadership theme, Giuliani praised the president for steadily leading the country in the aftermath of the "worst attack in our history." He said Bush is a great leader because "he makes decisions based on what he believes is right for America and doesn't change when the winds blow this way and the winds blow that way."

    Unless he has stated them, then you are correct.
    Yet a summation is most likely accurate when it is based on a continued pattern of his past actions.

    And this is what I see as not being based on what we know of Bush.
    He has never really cared what the press has said, he surely wouldn't care now. That is consistent with his past actions.

    He rarely (if ever), attacked another political leader in this country.
    His actions now are consistent with his past actions.

    So the opinion that has more weight, is that Bush is acting on his principles, not out of fear of the press.
