Re: Bush Press Conference - Lose and Face the Music, I like that........
The Democrats had a majority w/him before, and he
got tax cuts through, and education reform he wanted.
The fact is the Democrats can pass all the things they
want, and he can veto it, and they can override that.
They ran on one issue: hating Bush. Not much else.
The news keep telling us today the Dems elected a lot
of 'moderate to conservative' Democrats to office last night.
OK, let's see just how moderate to conservative they are
fiscally? I'd bet not much in reality.
To win the White House they need some Republicans
to vote for Hillary. They can't do that by negating all
GOP platforms across the board.
Also, the fact is that Bush is on the same page as
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid on two issues:
Amnesty and Immigration Reform. He wants amnesty
and worker programs expanded. Fact. Always has.
We will get a big amnesty push through from Bush,
and Pelosi will love it, and want it to be more sweeping.
Education - he likes to spend on this, a lot. So do they.
Bush and Kennedy on education tend to agree, not disagree.
Everything else, like Clinton, who had a GOP Congress ...
if it's popular, you try to make it your own in the media,
i.e., welfare reform. Do you think he wanted that? No.
He took and got most of the credit for it though.
Not much they can find common ground on, but, yes, there
are more than enough that exist for them to work on.
Confrontations won them the election in 2006, now,they
have to lead. They have to produce something other than
a dumping stock market, as we see this morning.
Look to McCain, and that's where Bush will likely go too
on policy ideas.
