How does Bush get away with statements such as these?

"She expressed her opinion," Mr. Bush said at the Tamarack Resort, near Donnelly, Idaho, about 70 miles north of Boise. "I disagree with it. I think immediate withdrawal from Iraq would be a mistake. I think those who advocate immediate withdrawal from not only Iraq but the Middle East are advocating a policy that would weaken the United States."


This wouldn't be good enough for a high school two-page paper. Picture the red-inked comment: "You need to support this thesis. In what ways would this make America weaker?"

I don't understand how anyone, and especially political reporters, can take him seriously. His best characteristic seems to be his ability to do PR, but an American president needs to do a bit better than that.
