Next Time, Send Cheney Peggy Noonan's analysis of GWB's Saturday afternoon face-off with Tim Russert:
The president seemed tired, unsure and often bumbling. His answers were repetitive, and when he tried to clarify them he tended to make them worse. He did not seem prepared. He seemed in some way disconnected from the event.

Well yes, we know that. Tell us more.
