I am stunned.
I cannot believe what Bush just did...
For those of you who think Bush will stick with his principles no matter what, think again. He just let Rumsfeld resign and I am not sure what else to expect in the future.
President Bush basically said that since the Democrats won the election he is going to do what they want in many cases. This is a BAD thing. This reinforces my thoughts that he will not use his veto...
President Bush looks like he is concerned about poll numbers... It reminds me of Clinton to a point...
President Bush said the following:
1. He thinks he can find middle ground on the minimum wage. I would guess that he will NOT
veto the coming increase in the Federal minimum wage, which is BAD.
2. He thinks he can get comprehensive immigration reform with The Dems. I am sure he can.
Expect amnesty to be granted and for an open border to continue.
This Press Conference enforces one thing to me. President Bush does NOT know why The Republican party lost. They lost because they have become a large government Party who supports:
Expanding entitlement Programs (Prescription Drugs for seniors)
Expanding Government Regulations on Business (Sarbanes Oxley)
Expanding the role of The Federal Government in Education
Expect President Bush to expand government and regulation even more in his last two years then he did in the first six years...
The era of big government will continue because President Bush is not a conservative on domestic issues...
