If Bush Won't Articulate A Plan, Hillary Will

You've got to wonder why the Bush Administration is doing such a bad job at getting its message out that it has to rely on [Chrenkoff] to pick up its slack" - Instapundit

My patience is at an end. This is (almost) a vote of no confidence.

It's becoming clear that the President and his press office are going to stand by (yet again) and allow the Left define the terms of success or failure, good or evil, up or down, enough or not enough -- this time with Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

Mr. President, we've seen this movie before. And now, Katrina has made your silence before the destruction in New Orleans even more deafening. It's not your decisiveness we question, it is your ability to clarify and to inspire that has been so sorely lacking.

Frankly, I'm not the only Conservative who is a little tired of making your points for you.

And Mr. President, some righteous indignation is appropriate when our enemies repeatedly lie about you and Conservatism in general. Your inability to mount a defense almost gave John Kerry the White House.

Ronald Reagan would have citizens DEMANDING to pay more at the pumps as part of a national war effort led by the Gipper himself. Americans under a Reagan administration would be holding Democrats accountable for their obstructionist energy policies that have led to this shortage.

Fire Scott McClellan, hire Arthur Chrenkoff and let's roll. I

f you won't tell the country what YOUR STRATEGY is for New Orleans, gasoline prices, (and illegal immigration for that matter) Clinton/Obama will...

Clinton/Obama? Isn't that the kind of association your sick of?

It will be interesting to watch the pundits this weekend -- prepare for some Bush bashing from the left AND the right.

Ray,

You're right it will be.

Let me be as clear as possible - I don't fault the President's reaction to Katrina - I fault his inability to defend himself and Conservative vision.

It's bigger than him now. It's time for George Allen to emerge as Conservative's spokesperson.

He should have "acted" like he was leading or something. American politics is 90% show and tell. Appearance can make or break a president.

With Bush, unlike President Buttafucco, err...I mean Clinton, what you see is genuine -- I'm just amazed how he can mount a war effort, but can't get around those darn Democrats on ANWR, or has nothing to say to Americans on oil supplies -- OIL SUPPLIES ARE NOT HIS FAULT -- but, his silence on them is because it leads to rampant speculation:

The rest of the economy is so good that Americans *CAN* pay more, we can't afford NO CLEAR PLAN on what to expect in the next 1 to 5 years.

If the Democrats oppose a national security matter (oil), take the fight to them, don't shrug.

Frankly, I have been frustrated with the President's inability to sell his own agenda for a while. Hence, the name of this blog.

During the first Presidential debate even, the fact that he didn't jokingly ask Kerry "Is that your final answer?" to his many positions on things is amazing. I was incredulous.

It tells me he may get good advice from talented folks on communication, it sounds like he just needs to heed it.

Scott McClellan is a mealy mouthed appeaser of the Terry Morans of this world.

I wonder if the head of FEMA will get the Medal of Freedom from President Bush?
