The Reagan Comparison (washingtonpost.com)

Froomkin: The Reagan Comparison (washingtonpost.com)

Another interesting and somewhat optimistic take on the reagan-bush situation. Froomkin thinks that Bush might actually fare poorly if the media accurately assesses Bush's attempts to compare himself to Reagan. I worry that the mainstream TV media won't be so daring, though. The major outlets don't seem to have any interest in criticizing, or even assessing the 'Mourner-in-Chief' for the days, weeks, months we'll be mourning even while he attempts to capitalize on the period. We'll see, i suppose.
