    There is no ONE reason. I have one. You gave one. There are others. But I agree that he's added to the problem with his condescending attitude towards the media. He really doesn't seem to enjoy governing, which necessarily involves media relations. He seems to enjoy campaigning, speaking to large adoring crowds and "big picture" stuff. But the day to day detail stuff that governing is mostly all about, he clearly hates, and isn't very good at.

    Still can't figure out why he ran since he doesn't seem to like the job.

      He had to realize that would be hard.  I think he is tired of the brickwall.  What he hasn't figured out is that only the media can help with the perception that a presidency is going well.  The media didn't openly attack Bush until Katrina because he had a strategy to treat them well.  He needs a strategy now!
