Feeling Bad For Georgie

I mentioned in an earlier post, I think, that it has become far too easy, or just far less sexy, at least from a left wing point of view to bash the prez. With the appointment of Harriet Miers to the supreme court and with his downward spiral in the polls, the prez is now a right wing target, and these buggers are far more malicious with their criticism then any lefty could dream to be. Add to that the fact that Karl Rove has to spend all his time an mental energy protecting his own hide rather then the Bush's, it would seem that the prez is left to fend for himself. Yesterday, in what can only be described as a Rovesque move, the prez gave what the press touted as a major speech on the War on Terror, followed in the afternoon by a terror alert concerning a potential plot on the NY subway system, and well maybe the prez has got some of his mojo back.
Could this mean that prez is acting on his own, has he learned some tricks from the Rove propaganda machine, or has Rove again come to the rescue of his boss, and maybe himself, at least from a PR prospective. The Repugnants are notrious for their ability to deflect any negative attention from their policies by keeping the American public in a constant state of fear and dread. By having Bush spout grandiuosly that the War on Terror is a matter of great human importance comparing terrorism to the threat that communism posed in the 20th century,the prez is getting back to what works for him, he is the War president, he is the man who stands up to the worlds great evil-doers and fights for the greater good of mankind, the terror alert was the cherry on top of the cake.
But will it work this time, has the prez lost his stranglehold on the far right repugnants, are they not already distancing themselves from him and already looking for another nutjob to lead their cause into the future? The president who once had almost complete unweavering support throughout his party, seems to have no friends left, he seems to be adrift alone at sea and the life boat that was Rove seems to have floated in an opposite direction, probably struggling for its own survival.
