During President Bush’s press conference earlier today, CBS News’ Jim Axelrod asked Bush if he had “any message” for his critics who, in the words of conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, have “Bush derangement syndrome.” Bush replied that he didn’t “know why they get angry.” Asked to comment on Bush’s response, Krauthammer praised Bush on Fox News today, saying that “he took a shoe for the country, a bullet for the country” by absorbing all of “the opprobrium and the abuse” over the war in Iraq.
