I can’t say I’m terribly suprised at this AP story that says that the President is not listening to us. He’s obviously too busy saving the world from democracy to pay attention to what’s happening at home.
Bush said he insulates himself from the ‘opinions’ that seep into news coverage by getting his news from his own aides. He said he scans headlines, but rarely reads news stories.
‘I appreciate people’s opinions, but I’m more interested in news,’ the president said. ‘And the best way to get the news is from objective sources, and the most objective sources I have are people on my staff who tell me what’s happening in the world.’
Yeah, Karl Rove is the image of objectivity!
