Larry: Truth be told, it's more than just not spreading the message well. That's the libDem excuse. You gotta walk the walk as well as talk the talk. We can forgive his malapropisms, his unease with the press and his lack of imagination in speeches. I could forgive all that and leap to help fix the broken wheels on the bandwagon if only he'd do some of the stuff we need that should be terribly easy, especially for a second-termer.
Maybe that's the problem: Bush does reasonably well on the hard stuff and completely blows it on the easy ones. It's like he doesn't want to be bothered. Josh Bolton should talk him into picking some of the low-hanging fruit on the political tree. We'd all be better off.
And then he can get on to the tougher ones. I'm paying well over $3 a gallon for super premium to feed the Mustang. How long can the economy keep heading up while we're sending the Saudis, et al., every dollar we can stuff into a gas pump? And just how many nukes will ol' Mahmoud have in a year or less?
