06/22/2005: Buyer's Remorse...
Second-Term Blues by Howard Kurtz (Washington Post) just about say it all in this paragraph:
"…But the most important explanation for Bush's problems is what might be called his bait and switch. Bush campaigned in 2004 on one set of ideas, but he is pursuing a radically different agenda. His program has been inverted. The issues he talked about the most last year, such as terrorism, are off the radar, while those he rarely highlighted are front and center…”
So, been asking this question for while: WHO are these folks? These “one issue voter” who don't support this group of Presidential Policies? It's YOU voters who have now left the country and US to grapple with this increasingly Unpopular President and his unpopular legacies agenda he's got on his desk? But your Buyer's Remorse is a bit late...eh?
Or consider this one:
"…Adding to Bush's woes, perhaps the single most popular piece of legislation that has any chance of landing on his desk this year is a bill to lift restrictions on stem-cell research. He has promised to veto it.…”
About the only thing he could be working for as the National Concensus of popular support and interest and the dolt wishes to Veto this legislation. It's going to more than just a LONG Four More Years at this rate of Nightmares 6-months down the road of his reelection.
