Bush's Homecoming Speech

Only Fox News Covers Bush's Homecoming Speech

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Late Tuesday afternoon, Fox News was the only major national TV outlet that carried a live telecast of former President Bush`s homecoming speech to cheering supporters in Midland, Texas.

`Sometimes what I did wasn`t popular,` a smiling Bush told the crowd. `But that`s OK. I always did what I thought was right.`"

The inauguration of the first African American president demanded wall-to-wall coverage from the cable news networks, and President Bush`s homecoming speech was a footnote in history that didn`t deserve any coverage.

The right-leaning Fox News did a disservice to their viewers by giving a disgraced president one more chance to spout his lies and distortions.

Bush left office with the lowest approval ratings of any president in history, doesn`t Fox News understand that we are sick and tired of Dubya?

We`ve all had a acrimonious break-up with a lover, after the final argument you rip all the photos, mementos and anything that could possibly remind you of her. That`s the way the American electorate feels about Bush, we don`t want to see his silly mug on the TV.

Memo to Fox News: Bush is history, Obama is the president and you should be covering everything he says and does.
