Good Observation on GWB Popularity


...liberals never understood that the fatal decline in Bush's popularity during his second term had at least as much to do with his advocacy of "comprehensive immigration reform" as with war-weariness...

Good that they never got that, eh?

(One quibble: GWB's reckless Big-Gummint spending didn't do him any good, either.)


...Now President Obama has entered the lists, urging Congress to take up immigration. One can only wonder what Congressional Democrats make of this. Maybe they figure their own approval ratings can't possibly get any lower. But Obama's can, and they will if he keeps talking about immigration.

Reid doesn't want to touch it, of course. And he doesn't want to touch Cap-n-Tax, either. But one or the other (or both) will come to the table, now that Obama's budget will NOT be considered.

For whatever reason, Obama seems to think that he's bullet-proof, OR that he's going to elevate himself to 'martyr' status with his agenda ("....good one-term rather than mediocre two-term...")
