The AP story (via ABC) opens like this:
"There's hardly a topic these days on which President Bush isn't asking the
Democratic-controlled Congress to avoid "a reflexive partisan response."
The President has decided that, since he is the decider, his decision will be to send more troops to Iraq no matter what better advice he receives...at home, he is has put forth a proposal to change the tax system to allow a credit to people who pay for their health insurance. The fact that this will not help the people who are so poor that they already pay little or no taxes is not really part of the equation, as far as the Decider is concerned.
Some people have thought that most of these proposals are "A BAD IDEA"...but, not to worry, the President has shown a willingness to "talk tough".....
"We've set important goals, and now Republicans and Democrats must work together to make them a reality," says the Decider of the United States... it seems not to have dawned on him yet that, as of 2006, the American people aren't playing along with his (bad) Decisions anymore.
"There's hardly a topic these days on which President Bush isn't asking the Democratic-controlled Congress to avoid "a reflexive partisan response."
Yes. That is because there is hardly a topic on which we share the same opinion with the President. We believe him wrong on almost every single issue. Time and Events have added validity to those beleifs. If to call a man on the fact that he is about to drive us all over a cliff is partisan, well, then, I suppose I am partisan. What's the freaking problem?
"They're just dismissing things because of pure politics," Bush whines...toughly.
Absolutely...politics, and common sense....us pesky Democrats keep raining on the Decider's parade...in a purely partisan manner, we refuse to STOP FACING THE FACTS.
