The main problem: "Again and again during the Bush presidency... the president will agree to give what is advertised in advance as a major speech. An important venue will be chosen. A crowd of thousands will be gathered. The networks will all be invited. And after these elaborate preparations, the president says... nothing that he has not said a hundred times before." "If a president continues to do that, he is himself teaching the public and the media to ignore him - especially when the words seem utterly to ignore the past three months of real-world events."
