Re…Bashing…should worry Bush

This is a real hoot. I can't tell if Novak is trying to be funny or if he's really off his rocker.

After the Plame fiasco with Rove and the continuing implosion of
ush Administration Responsibility Fiasco),
Novak continues to shill for Bush, (never acknowledging this to himself).

He stated this:

ASPEN, Colo. -- For two full days, President Bush was bashed. He was taken to task on his handling of stem cell research, population control, the Iraq war and, especially, Hurricane Katrina. The critics were no left-wing bloggers. They were rich, mainly Republican and presumably Bush voters in the last two presidential elections.

The Bush-bashing occurred last weekend at the annual Aspen conference sponsored by the New York investment firm Forstmann Little & Co. More than 200 invited guests, mostly prestigious, arrived Thursday (many by private aircraft) and stayed until Sunday for more than golf, hikes and gourmet meals. They faithfully attended the discussions presided over by PBS' Charlie Rose on such serious subjects as ''global poverty and human rights'' and ''the 'new' world economy.'' The connecting link was hostility to Bush.

Bush bashing…who would have thought?

Maybe Novak, like HSC Sec Chertoff, and FEMA's top brass, don't have access to TV, and therefore have been missing Hurricane George's effects on this country.

From AUTH of the Philadelphia Inquirer

Novak's best sentence follows in this paragraph: (emphasis mine)

I do not see myself as a defender of the Bush presidency, and I am sure the White House does not regard me as such. But as a member of the second panel consisting of journalists, I felt constrained to argue against implications that Hurricane Katrina should cause Bush to rediscover race and poverty. My comments again generated more criticism from the audience and obvious exasperation by Rose. After the closing dinner Saturday night, the moderator made clear he was displeased by my conduct.

If he's not a defender…what the hell is he?
