"White House advisers: Bush ‘is being reduced to child’s play.’"
Some allies of President Bush are expressing frustration with how “the White House seems to be wasting Bush’s time on frivolous events” in the middle of an economic crisis, according to Political Bulletin:
“Look at the schedule for Monday,” says an outside Bush adviser. “A highlight of his day was witnessing a tee ball game. … He is being reduced to child’s play.” … There is growing concern among Bush allies that the Democrats will effectively portray the President and GOP candidate John McCain as out of touch.
