The Washington Post’s “vociferous” Bush foes strike again

Michael Barone, writing on his new blog, takes the Washington Post to the woodshed for a snarky piece by Jim VandeHei and Peter Baker about the amount of time President Bush spends away from the White House. The authors appear to regard as open the question of whether a modern president can conduct his duties from a location other than Washington, D.C.
I also got a kick out of this line by the two Postmen: “The more vociferous among Bush’s foes have noted that he spent a month at the ranch shortly before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, when critics assert he should have been more attentive to warning signs.” Count the Post as among Bush’s more vociferous foes. It saw fit during the 2004 campaign to devote its front page to this theme, including a picture of Bush playing golf in August 2001.
