He hit are the media turning against President Obama you know.
Positive opinion about that but I want to hear your opinion first.
-- it's really good question and you know looking at the previous administration.
There were a series of events that really dismantled the bush presidency at least in the mind of the media.
You know this was.
A series of minor scandals and some bigger ones stretching from Jack Abramoff to security at ports where Saudi -- shipments were coming and and we also saw the rejection of Harriet -- from the -- being another big issue that really sort of tore down a lot of expectations for Bush's second term.
And we -- seeing some very similar situations taking place right now there's you know.
Huge dissatisfaction over the possibility.
Military and -- intervention in Syria which is taking place before it intervention has even begun which is pretty historic.
We're also seeing the rejection.
From the president's base the man who was supposed to be the Federal Reserve chair.
Larry Summers and we are also seeing a series of scandals that just will not go away.
Ranging from -- Ghazi two BI arrests so whether or not these are going to have the same effect.
On the Obama presidency as -- similar situations had on bush remains to be seen but it certainly is not looking good for Obama right now.

Up from what I can tell I still don't see it nearly as far.
Critical the media allies as as we saw with the Bush Administration I saw that we've even gotten close to where the bush to criticism was -- mean.
At some point -- like for rain -- gonna blame that administration.
I know that's certainly true and we still see despite all the talk of media turning against them some pretty clear situations where the media still seems to be.
It -- not asking the questions that it would have been asking for previous administration or giving a pretty clear slide.
You know the most recent example of this of course is being.
Navy yard shooting where the president went out when there was still be belief that a terrorist attack could be occurring in the nation's capital of a suspect on the -- -- city.
And gave a pretty fiery partisan speech and of course -- that it happened in the previous administration we would have seen pitchforks.
