ABSTRACT
This article focuses on how U.S. President George W. Bush is trying to bolster his image by entangling himself in small human dramas. Bush spent a lot of time on the Sago, West Virginia, mining accident, something he would not have done earlier in his presidency. But Bush 2006 is an emasculated president hungry for every approval-rating point. Aides peddled the idea that Bush's ratings are low because he is unafraid to fight for radical ideas, but Bush is cutting back his policy campaigns this year because none of his previous ones had momentum.
