Publication History

Published Online:

The current problems facing President Bush are not solely of his own making. Over the past several decades, the office of the presidency has lost much of the stature and respect it once commanded, due to the actions of the men who have occupied it, more critical and even contemptuous coverage by the news media, and modern politicians’ obsession with public opinion polls. These developments do not bode well for the long-term health of the American republic.
