Popularity Isn’t Just for Elections

President Bush is blowing it, Dick Morris writes, because of his disregard for pursuing popularity — “All because he doesn’t want to do what he must — get up every day and speak to America.”

Think back to the December 2004 press conference, in which Bush bragged about the political capital that he intended to spend. If you don’t feed that capital with a little popularity, there’s no public clamoring for the other guys to work with you, and your capital has suddenly disappeared. It happened with Social Security, and it’ll happen again with Iraq after the President completes his current burst of attention to that PR breakdown.
