Cowboy Journalism--Howard Kurtz--WaPo
Advertisements [?]

No longer, we are told, is he (Bush) a saber-rattling unilateralist. Now the president is a man who works for consensus with allies and pleads for public patience when such efforts drag on.

But is this true, or is just that Bush is boxed in by the situation in North Korea, a country that already has a nuclear capability and could wreak great havoc on American forces in South Korea?

(sammpling of MSM opinions)

But a reader of Talking Points Memo isn't buying:

"Let's nip this whole 'Bush is shifting to a more enlightened foreign policy' theme in the bud, shall we? . . .

(scathing analysis of current events)

"The fact is Bush has boxed himself in, frittering away lives and treasure, and leaving himself with few options. He deserves no more credit for a policy shift than the man serving a life sentence who declares that he will henceforth be law-abiding."

The Lieberman debate rages on, with conservatives increasingly speaking out for Joltin' Joe as next month's Democratic primary draws closer.

(summary of MSM opinion on Liebermann)(further mingling of Bush and Liebermann)
