, we get the reviews of Bush's speech from the right. Here are excerpts of Glenn's excerpts:
Michelle Malkin: "platitudes, non sequiturs, and recycled rhetoric I've been deconstructing the last five years."
John "The Rocket" Hinderaker: "He had his chance and he blew it . . . . President Bush doesn't have many chances left to salvage his second term. After tonight, he might not have any."
Paul "Deacon" Mirengoff: "President Bush did wimp out, and fatally so ...
Ankle Biting Pundits: "... I believe he cheapened his argument."
Misha at Anti-Idotarian Rottweiler: "long on blather and emotion and amazingly short on actual solutions. . . . Take your 'virtual' fence and your hi-tech vaporware coupled with your amnesty plan and shove them up your ass, Jorge."
Mark Levin, National Review: ". . . . This is pure idiocy, and it has the potential of being far more damaging to this nation than any big-government power-grab perpetrated by any previous president and Congress."
Dave Riehl: ... a eulogy for the so-called Reagan Revolution...President Bush all but declared himself irrelevant ...
John Hawkins, Right Wing News: "After the speech last night, I took a look around the right side of the blogosphere to get a sense of what people thought. The reaction was probably -- oh, let's say somewhere between 75-90% negative ..."
But Bush's approval will never reach zero because, as we see, there are still people who will defend him.
As long as they can do it anonymously.
