Not much time, but I must say that after Bush gave his SOTU, the public response was better than expected.
The press seeks to counter that. Look at the stories, and headlines:
Carl Bernstein: Bush Administraton Has Done 'Far Greater Damage' Than Nixon at E&P
Senate panel opposes Iraq troop increase at WaPo
Bush can no longer dictate his terms at the Financial Times
At Trial, Hints of Intrigue and Betrayal at the NY Times under a photo of Bush and Rove
Surpluses could be just promises at USA Today
Maybe I'm looking too much into it, maybe not.
