Should I get more political? It seems as if everyone else is. Even though they won’t give me a voice in the choice for Vice President, I’m starting to feel invigorated. The self-destruction of conservative Republicans. Though the Democrats seem to be split close to 50-50 on their last two candidates, the real numbers are 84-84: the percentages each candidate is acceptable to party members.
President Bush at CPAC:
This is an important election. Prosperity and peace are in the balance.
I remember the end of the Clinton presidency pretty well. Economy in good shape: check. Minor military entanglements, but no war on terror: check. It was a Reagan-like feel-good that only the Democrats could muck up. Which they did, of course.
But we had prosperity and peace. They weren’t in the balance. They were in the bank. So to speak.
Today the president concedes they are in the balance. Sounds like a concession he’s not been doing his job.
