Do They Read Their Own Stories?
by

The USA Today poll shows that the public by a 52-40% margin favor limiting SCHIP to families at 200% of the poverty line, just as Bush wants to do. But remarkably, the USA story itself then includes this line: “Taken together, the results show that while Bush may be losing the political battle with Democrats, he may be doing better on policy.” Well, no actually. It says he is winning the battle of public opinion, sometimes referred to as “politics.” And I don’t recall any announcement that the Democrats found votes to override the veto. In fact, the article goes on to say: “Bush, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have said they’re willing to talk if Thursday’s veto override fails, as both sides expect.” Well, “losing” I guess means making the op-ed page editors really mad. ( And of course the story headline that the poll results are “mixed” is utterly misleading. A 12 pt. margin is mixed?)
