    The point I am making, is why does Michelle think she is too good to take questions from the press? The whole press, not the folks they allow into the intersanctum.
    It's a terrible point. One conference call is not proof that she refuses to take questions from the press. Trust me, you'll understand as soon as a republican is president and some idiotic liberal tries to pull this crap. You'll see how bogus 99% of the attacks are very clearly.

    Vanity Fair magazine is taking a left-wing swipe at a new biography of first lady Laura Bush whose advance buzz heralds it as a sure-fire best seller.

    In writing the book "Laura Bush: An Intimate Portrait of the First Lady,” author Ronald Kessler had unprecedented access to Laura’s longtime friends, family members, aides and political insiders such as Condoleezza Rice.

    But Vanity Fair contributing editor James Wolcott turns that into a negative, writing that "White House cooperation always amounts to managing the message.”

    Yes, that was the headline and subhead for Mark Moford's column in the San Francisco Chronicle today. Not only does the very title of this screed of ignominious proportions rip into the first lady for no worthy reason, Moford also says that being a Catholic woman is "unfortunate." Shamefully, he also calls the Bush daughters their "twin Styrofoam peanut daughters," so it isn't just Laura Bush he unduly attacks. It's been a long time since a major newspaper has published a so-called editorial with this much vitriol contained within.

    There are even claims that First Lady Laura Bush was a drug dealer in her youth. She is the darling of the US right, adored for her schoolmarm demeanour and whiter-than-white aura, and one of the biggest assets in Bush's attempt to appeal to middle America. But Kelly says she was the "go-to-girl for dime bags" of grass at the Southern Methodist University. Kelly quotes a PR executive, Robert Nash, who says: "She not only smoked dope but she sold dope."There are even claims that First Lady Laura Bush was a drug dealer in her youth.

    To be fair there were not a lot of attack on her. I wasn't trying to mock Tucker merely point out that they did happen, and a few were right vicious.

    I wonder how they'd of reacted to a Laura Bush "Listen Only" event?
    Do you actually know what a listen only event is? It is one where, normally, the press would not be invited, because it is only to brainstorm ideas. Allowing the press to listen in is only done as a courtesy, and only if the press expresses an interest in the topic. Since obesity is a fairly important topic, the conference was opened up to the press.

    A few years ago, I was actually in on one of these, through American Standard and ACCA. It was a strategy session on how we were going to address the change from a 10 SEER A/C standard to a 13 SEER standard. At the time, we were lobbying for a 12 SEER standard, as we felt 13 SEER would be too costly, and would leave many people no longer able to afford air conditioning in their homes, should their existing system break down, and became unrepairable. The press was invited to the event, but were only allowed to listen. They later reported on the change, and the politics driving the various factions in the debate.

    This thread is a non-story.

    Thanks, Vic. Clearly she was, to at least some degree, attacked by people. Like I said, I'm wasn't trying to imply that it didn't.

    But, honestly, do you really think she would have been attacked for doing what has been decribed in the OP?

    I could see hillary Clinton taking heat for somethign like that, but I always felt that Laura Bush was so genuinely likable that she didn't get as much **** from the media. Again, I might be wrong aboutthat, but even the stories you quoted seem more like fringe leftist lunatics being dickheads.
