Juan Williams On Studio B - President/Vice-President Have To Stick With Strong Point - Terrorism

Reported by Donna - November 22, 2005

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith, correspondant Juan Williams said that the Vice-President is out there because he has been tough on terror and this is what he should be talking about. Smith didn't seem to agree on this one citing the Vice-President's poll numbers.

Williams said there are two things that are facing the President right now, 1) That justification for the war and the standing of the President is deteriorating and 2) That terrorism is still a strong point for the President and Vice President.

Williams continued saying that the President's problem is that this administration doesn't tell anyone how things are going in Iraq. (Comment: Could be a good reason for that) This immediately put Smith on message and he said that there were good things being done in Iraq, schools were being built. (Comment: Why whenever they point out all the good things that are being done in Iraq do we hear about these schools? How many? Are the children able to attend? Do Iraqi girls attend? Is there power? Are there teachers?)

They ended the segment by saying that all of the bad things that happen in Iraq seem to fall on the President's shoulders and agreed that we should be hearing more good things that are going on in Iraq.

Comment: I agree with the fact that this administration does not relay to anyone (including Congress) what is going on in Iraq. It seems that every attempt by Fox to deliver good news from Iraq turns into bad news. Studio B started a segment about turning over one of Saddam's palaces to the Iraqi people, but the day was ruined by mortars being fired at the event.

I suppose that Fox can try and go out of their way to bring some good news out of the war in Iraq - but it seems even they can't be successful at something that doesn't exist. Maybe it's better if they stick with the bird flu stories.
