    Well, campaign manager for Dukakis. But I don't think that qualifies as being in politics. She's never run for office and currently holds no position that makes her anything more than an entertainer.

    And the criticisms of her by the white house were becasue of what she wrote as a columnist.

    She's equal to Rush in that regard.

    It wasn't Bush, it was Scott McClellan:

    "You have an op-ed that was written by Susan Estrich that talked about how the Democrats are going to start engaging in personal attacks on the President's character. And the American people deserve better. It's just sad to see that the debate -- that they are lowering themselves to this level."

    Which qualifies as an answer to this:

    ... members of the press or private citizens that expressed opposition to him and his policies?
    She is a member of the "press" who expressed opposition to Bush and his policies that was singled out by Bush's press secretary.

    While she is nowhere near Rush in regards to clout, she's on the same level as far as the topic goes.


    P.S. Tucker Case > Rush Limbaugh.


    P.P.S. I put "Press" in quotes because she is not really a member of th epress, but neither is Limbaugh.

    Yeah, but the thread also includes the press secretary as a possible source.

    Bush was willfully uninformed. he relied upon his staff to brief him, admitted it, and had a different media strategy.

    Bush addressed criticisms, but didn't put together anything very coherent or specific. He was typically and purposely vague.

    Here's another one.

    "If Al Gore is the voice of the Democratic Party on national security issues, we welcome it" - Scott McClellan

    This is backfiring... an administration going after a private citizen?
    Front page on Drudge for more than 24-hours.

    And why should Drudge Report matter?

    A guy with 3-hours a day, and other radio hosts defending him?
    They would have been much better off leaving him be instead of making him a factor.
    Explain to me how exactly this is going to backfire on Obama, I'm curious to hear this.

    But Obama is true to his Alinsky roots.
    Isolate and destroy was the intention behind "don't listen to Rush".
    And their endless lies about what Rush's "I want him to fail" means.

    Like I've said, you've missed the entire point.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    But do you not think the president looks foolish signling out entertainers?
    I think that to some people it will look foolish, but I think if it works, tying Rush to the Republicans, then the advantage outweighs that.
