Frankly, I'm surprised that the divide isn't higher, given that Fox News is a propaganda arm for the Republican party. Who thought Bush was going to say anything of any substance in that speech? His supporters (many of whom, by the way, were disappointed by the promises he made), who watch Fox News overwhelmingly.
