Watch out for that reach 

Early on in Bush's first term, Ari Fleischer established this White House views the "reaching out" aspect of governing not as two-way communication and compromise, but the casting about to find people to pull along with their agenda,

"I think it's called the essence of governing, is to ... is to reach out to the voters, to talk to them, so they agree with the Presidential agenda"
- Ari Fleischer 3/5/2001

Four years later,

"The President will continue to reach out, and it's important for other people to reach back, as well, so that we can focus on what's best for the American people."
- Scott McClellan 12/3/2004

And reaching out he is,

"I'll reach out to everyone who shares our goals." - George Bush 11/4/2004

"I will listen to anyone who has a good idea to offer." - George Bush 2/5/2005
