1. Good. That should take some of the shine off the recent "dead cat bounce"
he got in the polls.

2. Weird--that little item doesn't say where he's speaking.
Maybe he's just gonna stand on the airport tarmac? Twenty minutes from arrival to speech...guess so.

3. The whack-job majority - Philadelphia editorial
'EVERYONE SORT of likes the president," opined Chris Matthews on MSNBC's "Hardball" recently, "except for the real whack-jobs, maybe on the left." It would certainly be news to most people - apparently a majority of Americans are lefty whack-jobs.

By now everyone knows about President Bush's plummeting job-approval ratings. And of course, one can think Bush is doing a terrible job as president but still like him as a person. But the public hasn't just turned against Bush when it comes to his performance - they've turned against him personally.


...

Back in the 1980s, reporters created a myth about President Reagan, that he was beloved by nearly all Americans. Though the myth of Reagan's popularity persists to this day, it was never true. Reagan actually ranks in the middle of the pack: more popular over the course of his presidency than Nixon, Ford and Carter, but less popular than Eisenhower, Kennedy and Clinton.

When Reagan left office his approval rating in the Gallup poll stood at 63 percent. Pretty good, but not as good as Clinton's 68 percent. Yet journalists seldom speak in awed tones about how much the public loved Bill Clinton.

The point is that perceptions of presidential popularity have consequences for news coverage.

Let's hope that the good citizens of the City of Brotherly Love show up to show Bush how much he not loved.
