the Actual Campaign and the Actual Opponents

Michael Barone surmises what I have been thinking for weeks. The President has never really been campiagning against a successful and bold Kerry Campaign. He has fought hard against the media, liberal as it may be, and whatever images of him that they choose to paint.

Very little was the times that President Bush had to confront the threats and ideal of John Kerry, who in reality is a candidate like Walter Mondale or Bob Dole. The President had to be compared to an idealized version, or vision of John Kerry.

What media that wasn't left-leaning or leaning against the President, would let a candidate get away with as many gross violations of rhetoric as John Kerry has produced?

"There is no liberal media" is something that I continously read, backed up by the WEAKEST apologetics ever summoned to defend against the hundreds of instances of anecdotal evidence suggesting and supporting the idea that mainstream media leans politically leftward.

Saying "there is no liberal media" makes gives someone the same authority as if he had just said "gravity makes things fall up".
