Dayside: "The President Has Reason to Be Concerned"

Reported by Janie - March 14, 2006

Juliet Huddy made the ever increasingly true statement yesterday on Dayside, "The President has reason to be concerned". Was she talking about the Katrina tape recently released showing he was aware of the magnitude and the disaster the storm might bring prior to landfall? The debacle over the port deal? The highest disapproval rating since Nixon? The quagmire in Iraq? The fact that Iraq is on the brink of civil war? Of course not!

Immediately after Dayside aired Bush's speech from GWU in its entirety, Huddy felt the need to express the President has reason to be concerned. But what was her reasoning for making that statement? Because 80% of Americans, and more specifically, 70% of Republicans, THINK that Iraq is heading towards civil war.

Never mind the fact over 2,300 of our soldiers have been killed. Never mind the 16,000+ soldiers that have been wounded. Never mind the fact that our soldiers are getting caught up in a civil war in another country. And certainly never mind the Iraq body count, which is estimated between 30,000 and 150,000. What REALLY matters to the President is that 70% of Republicans THINK Iraq is going to fall into civil war!

Apparently Fox feels the only time to worry about a disaster is when you're losing your base. Purely political sentiment, rather than actually caring about our soldiers caught up in this civil war or the amount of those that have been killed in a war of choice rather than necessity.
