John Gibson Thinks George Bush Is Tired Of Fighting Conservative Battles

Reported by Deborah - October 10, 2005

We're living in strange times for sure. George W. Bush is now criticized openly on Fox News and tonight on Big Story even David Frum expressed his disappointment in Bush. Now a new political battle has been added to the political landscape between George Bush and the Conservatives. It's getting rather complicated for guys like John Gibson so tonight he kind of defended Bush. 10/10/05

Gibson opened his My Word segment assuring viewers that he had no contact with Bush and only met Rove once briefly. Gibson claimed that maybe Bush is tired of fighting the Conservatives battles for them like the Iraq War and Social Security. Gibson's theory is that in Bush's fifth year, he just wanted to avoid a fight.

"Maybe he didn't want another huge fight over a lightning rod conservative nominee to the high court. Maybe he just wanted to slip through somebody he trusted but who wouldn't cause an uproar."

Then even Gibson got in a dig claiming that while the debate over Iraq was going on Bush stayed with Social Security "putting people to sleep" and ended his piece with this comment.

"And don't forget legacy. For better or worse, history has him as the Iraq war president. Consequently, he might have picked Miers figuring he didn't want history to also tag him as the president who lost the Republican majority in the Congress."

comment: So now that the conservative fortress is crumbling, which way will Fox News lean? In the short term they will will need to straddle the fence between the Conservative Opposition and the Bush Administration. In the long term, they will need to decide if profits trump ideology.
