Bush Apologist Elisabeth Bumiller Puts Words in Bush's Mouth

Rightwing blog Power Line does our media tracking for us:
"Elisabeth Bumiller's New York Times story on the speech includes an interesting variation on the usual allusion to President Bush's low standing in the polls. Referring to Bush's discussion of President Truman, Bumiller states: "He left it unsaid that Truman was deeply unpopular at the end of his two terms in office and that it took a generation to appreciate his achievements."
Bush may have left it unsaid, but Bumiller made sure to say it for him.

To top it off, Bumiller writes this vacuous analysis of Bush's recent mea culpa: "With a Few Humble Words, Bush Silences His Texas Swagger." (The title isn't the worst of it)

We should have expected to see Bumiller get out of the newspaper business after all the fawning she has done towards Dubya since 2000. Yet we still see her vacant demeanor on the current Sunday talk shows. Her sole function is hagiography of the entire Bush clan, to contrive the most naive, unreal spin she can.

BuMiller is set to write an authorized biography of the Condiliar. What better way to prepare the way than to help her "husband" with his word-smithing.
