partisans vs. media, 20 years ago

Looking for confirmation of a story from the 1988 or 1992 US general election. A few GOP partisans at a Bush Sr. rally started jeering media members, who wound up feeling uncomfortable and maybe unsafe. When Bush was made aware of it, he was almost uncomprehending-- "how could anyone take campaign rhetoric so seriously?", was the general take on his response. Google searching "Bush + media" isn't getting me there. Anyone else know this story better, or have confirmation or debunking?

A rational explanation of the GOP budget?

Can anyone point me toward some writing by a smart person in support of the GOP's budget? I'm not being snarky—I am sure that wealthy, anti-intellectual people looking out for their own interests is a motivation on the part of some congresspeople, but I am not ready to believe in a world where it is the only one.

Mr Obama?

I've noticed that often the current U.S. President is often referred to as "Mr. Obama" in the news, whether online, radio, or TV (and, it seems to me, moreso in foreign media) -- but I don't seem to remember this for "Mr. Bush" or "Mr. Clinton", who were always "President Bush" and "President Clinton" in my recollection. Did I miss this all along, or is it a new convention of the media?

Did Ferraro cry?

I was sure I remembered that Geraldine Ferraro cried during the 1984 presidential election, and that the media made the event into a symbol of why women are too weak to hold national office, but now I can't find a headline or news article from that time that mentions her crying. Am I getting this mixed up with Pat Schroeder's famous breakdown when she dropped out?

What are Web 2.0's effects on American politics?

I always hear that blogging and YouTube are (and/or will be) revolutionary in American politics. Is this true? How so? Can you recommend recent books, academic articles, extended blog posts and other media that demonstrate (or argue against) the effects of blogging, citizen journalism, social networking web sites and YouTube on American politics? Differing viewpoints would be appreciated!
