The problem with the “Prowler” is that it is too caught up on
“Capitol Hill gossip” and Congressional staffers wishing to see
their quotes make news. The unnamed administration source sounds
more like a reporter for the
than part of the team.
Maybe the years of constant attacks have taken their toll on the
fainthearted career bureaucrats, but it appears the President is
not fazed in the least. Accomplishments? I seem to recall a few: a
successful War on Terror, complete with two liberated and
transformed countries in Iraq and Afghanistan (sorry
and the rest of the media elite — I don’t buy your nonsense on
this subject). How about the fact that Bush has leveled the liberal
agenda and some liberal media elites along the way? Then try the
fact that Bush is about to rescue the Supreme Court, (with a
conservative woman) from 40 years of liberal corruption to 40 years
of the return to “original intent.” This single accomplishment will
enshrine his legacy, as the Supreme Court has become the last best
hope for untenable liberalism. U.N. reform, permanent tax cuts,
Social Security reform, and the estate tax are all items pushed
down the field by Bush, despite an entire reluctant political class
on his back. If they don’t get it done, Congress is to blame, not
Bush. Mistakes? You bet. I can name a few — we all can. But
perhaps if you pundits accented the positive rather than
conventional wisdom, you all might enjoy life a bit more. Just a

Congress has a shorter memory than the public at large. I
officially refute the Prowler’s overall pessimism and say Bush will
probably be as pro-active this term as he was in the first.
Disasters are flukes, but profligate spending has never been a
special occasion or circumstance of events. We’ll probably get the
tax-cuts, a decent Judge on SCOTUS, but I’ll grant you that Social
Security may survive in all its glory as an anti-matter escrow
account. So buck up and get with the program.
