Monday, May 23, 2005 Compromise?
Some folks think the Senate compromise was necessary, others think it a betrayal.
My question apart from the rather obvious Republican failure to stand up for principle is where was Bush? Isn't he the leader of the party? Isn't he the one who should be calling the shots and directing the action in the Congress?
LBJ was the President who knew how to strong arm or shmooze his party people.
Does anybody actually know what Bush wanted accomplished in all of this?
I know that Bush will go down as a great President for his response to 9/11, but apart from that I am greatly disappointed in him. I don't understand his reluctance to get his way on issues (let alone defend our borders). posted by Mark Butterworth | 11:30 PM |
