Will of the people

My sense of balance seems off. The President is giving a press conference right now. That is just not normal. It should be, but he avoids them at all costs. So Bush starts the healing by scolding the press corps by chastising the first question with "Now that I've got the will of the people at my back, I'm going to start enforcing the one-question rule. That was three questions." Corny but it came off as an awkward joke, but really kind of a jab. A couple of laughs, but mostly quiet. Then he did it again to the next reporter. "Again, you violated the one-question rule right off the bat. Obviously, you didn't listen to the will of the people." Dead quiet. No reaction. He looks at the press when asked if he feels free and comments looking directly at the members of the press corps "Oh, in terms of feeling free, well, I don't think you'll let me be too free." So the press corps stifles his freedom? He might say he is joking, but there is contempt in his voice. It is obvious.

Way to start off for four more years.
