February 1983
National Review;2/4/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p91
The article comments on the political crisis faced by U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Halfway on his term, Reagan is facing an onslaught of criticisms from the media. Major personalities in the White House press corps assert that the president has detached himself from his responsibilities and that the country lacks political leadership. To quell the attacks, Reagan held a press conference and stalled his critics. However, media hounds are likely to resume their attack on the president as soon as he gives his State of the Union Address and Budget Message.
