Suggesting that Obama's six-week health care crisis puts him in the same position of Bush following the Iraq invasion softens not only the magnitude of Bush's failures, but the media's as well. It's an effort to downplay the massive missteps that led to the war.
Just hours after 13 Americans were shot and killed on a military base in our nation's capital, reporters and pundits began speculating that gun reform was dead.
I have little doubt that if Bob Schieffer was available in 3.5 million more homes, Face the Nation would still be in first place in the battle for Sunday morning news viewers.
In the wake of the DOMA and Prop 8 rulings, evangelicals shouldn't only be investigating their view of marriage, sexuality, and politics, but also their perception of themselves and who is shaping it.
