The Washington Post reports that the White House is vowing to respond–finally–to the partisan attacks that have threatened to sink the Administration. The Post suggests that responding to the Democrats’ attacks “would represent a change in tack. Bush’s staff, during his campaign and in the White House, has typically handled controversies by trying to ignore them on the assumption that reporters and the public eventually would be distracted by other issues. Bush’s aides were still trying that this week.”
I guess it’s progress if the White House has finally figured out that the Niger controversy isn’t going away, but this episode has shaken my confidence in President Bush’s political judgment.
