Bias watch?

From today's Register-Guard, in a story by David Steves on the upcoming state Republican convention (emphasis mine):
2006, a great year for Republicans?

As the state's party faithful prepare to descend on Eugene this weekend for their convention, they are expressing optimism about what they see as a grand election year for the Grand Old Party in Oregon.

Nevermind that, nationally, it's been a tough year for Republicans. Their president led the United States into a war that, according to recent surveys, has split the country. And his poll numbers are sagging. GOP majorities in the U.S. House and Senate are more vulnerable than they've been since their 1994 takeover.
OK, maybe Steves meant nothing by that phrasing. Still, anyone wanna bet whether he has one of these on his car?

    Well, collectively as a party, he is our President. I’ll be in Eugene this weekend and although it’s probably not the Oregon Party’s most pressing issue, I hope there are some within the Party who are evaluating where we go from here in ’08. I feel as though the Bush administration has led the way as the GOP has painted itself into a corner on narrow issues like flag protection, marriage protection, pledge of allegiance protection, and embryo protection. All the while, this administration has grown government at the expense of civil liberties and fiscal responsibility.

    The Party that professes individual responsibility needs to take at least some collective responsibility for our President and do some soul searching. More of the same, or a more inclusive “big tent” approach to constructive solutions? www.smithforpresident.com
