Bush Losing Spin Battle

Reading E.J. Dionne's latest commentary, one would get the opinion that only doves reside in DC, and congress, no one supports us being in Iraq anymore, and that any day Bush will withdrawl all the troops.

John Murtha, John Warner, and Dick Durbin are given large amounts of space in his commentary, but not a word about the Lieberman speech on the floor on the 15th. Why? Because while Lieberman supported the Warner Amendment (and voted against fellow Democrat Carl Levin), his speech sounded like support for the President. It also shows the Democrats aren't in lock step with each other, and cracks in that party aren't newsworthy.

It doesn't matter how much Cheney, or Bush roars about the fact that the Dem's are trying to rewrite their own history on Iraq, or how much Lieberman talks about doing the right thing; Dionne and other columnists won't write about it as long as they can keep finding folks like Murtha that will say we should leave.
