Bush has nothing new to say-one reporter asks if his repetition means he is trying to correct the public

Washington Post

President Bush launches a much-ballyhooed new public-relations campaign next week -- but is it just going to be more of the same?

On the CBS Evening News last night, John Roberts reported that Bush's solution to his current, highly embattled state is to "sharpen his focus and ramp up his sales pitch in the coming weeks, telling Americans why it's important to stay the course in Iraq, pressuring Congress to get some of his agenda passed by the August recess.

"But on the surface, at least, it appears as though this sharper focus doesn't include anything that the president hasn't already been saying, and in a case of deja vu all over again, his new PR campaign on Iraq seems remarkably similar to one he launched almost two years ago, citing the progress in Iraq, while at the same time reminding Americans that difficult times still lie ahead."...

All this more-of-the-same-only-different talk led one reporter at yesterday's press briefing with Scott McClellan to ask:

" Q So are you suggesting, then, that the current concerns of the American people are because they are either uninformed or misinformed about the situation in Iraq and the President is going to try to correct them?

"MR. McCLELLAN: Look, we have scores of troops in harm's way in Iraq. We have families here at home that are making tremendous sacrifices. Everybody wants to see the troops return home sooner than later. But the way to returning home is to complete the mission. That's the way to honor their service and sacrifice. And so it's simply what I was saying. This is a top concern for the American people. It's a top priority for the President of the United States. And he's just sharpening his focus on that important priority, along with the economic priority, economic priorities, that have always been at the top of his agenda."

Should we take that as a 'yes'?
