My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


To Back Up An Earlier Idea . . .

About a week ago I wrote that the White House seems to be weak in the arena of controlling a story line, as evidenced by sending Rumsfeld to the Hill on the same day as a staggeringly good jobs report.

Well, here's this off the Rasmussen Reports home page, home of the Rasmussen Tracking Poll:

As Americans assess the economy, geopolitical events have overwhelmed Friday's report of job creation. The Rasmussen Consumer Index, a daily measure of the nation's economic confidence, has fallen for four straight days. Normally, that Index would have made double digit gains following a better than expected employment report.

It's not just that the media is intent on burying good news for the White House; it's also that the White House makes it so darn easy on them.
