Reflecting On How It Was Lost...
"It's time for the White House to go on offense and ' get our mojo back.' Josh Bolten said Sunday in his first interview since taking over as the president's chief of staff.
Bolten made no promises of pulling up President Bush's all-time low approval ratings, but he said he and Bush have decided they want to be more open with the media and the public.
'We've taken advice from a lot of folks that we ought to put the president out more in ways that the American people can see what he's really like,' Bolten said on "Fox News Sunday."
But he said that does not mean the president's policies are going to get an overhaul. 'I don't think we need to change, but we do need to refresh and re-energize,' Bolten said.
For example, he said the White House is ' thinking actively ' about immigration and putting the president out front on an issue that has split him off from some in his own party. Bolten added that it is vital that the White House communicate effectively about the importance of the fight against terrorism so Americans will support the mission."
I am 100% behind the fight against terrorism - let's go catch Osama Bin-Laden and "re-deploy" the troops in Iraq - then say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
