Should Tax Dollars Fund Bush's Bubble?  Feb 8, 2005   

A controversial president barnstorms through the country attending carefully controlled events where tickets are distributed by his own party, where no one disagrees with a word he says and no one puts him on the spot.  When this happened in the heat of the political season, the events and at least part of the president's travel costs were being paid for by his campaign. But now it's a post-election president spending tax dollars and ostensibly acting in the public interest...  I look forward to . . . traveling around the country discussing this issue -- similar to what President Clinton did," Bush said... But Bush's approach couldn't be much more different than Clinton's... When Clinton had his "discussions" on Social Security, he intentionally brought opponents along with him, spoke before a mixed crowd, and let himself get grilled...  He invited Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), among others, to join him.  Dan Froomkin, Washington Post
