Education. Education. Education.
Will someone please tell W that he is not the Governor of the
I'm a fan of the President. I think he is a good man, with
a good heart. I think he knows where he wants to go and
how it wants to get there. And I hate to criticize the
But I'll wait for the next train thank you very much if he
thinks education is the car that will take us to freedom.
If President Bush had skipped the first 30 minutes of his speech
and not used Keynesian economics to justify his tax cut, it
would have been great. We would have tax relief for everyone.
We would have ended the immoral death tax. We would pay
down our national debt. We would have a national defense
shield. Our fighting men and women would have bigger
paychecks. We would be able to keep some of our payroll
tax for our own retirement security. The roses would have
smelled sweeter and the sun would have shone brighter.
But he didn't. Is George W. Bush a Gemini because the
twins were in the House Chamber tonight?
He catered to almost every Democratic priority. Education.
Social Security and Medicare protection. A prescription
drug benefit. Protection of the environment by government
edict. Which party does he belong?
And then he argued that the U.S. needs a tax cut to spur the
economy. No. The American taxpayer deserves a tax cut
because it is the right thing to do. It is immoral to take
something that does not belong to you and give it to someone
else. I don't give a rat's ass if a $1.6 trillion tax-cut
help grow the economy. That's not the business of
government. I care that a $1.6 trillion tax-cut is the
right thing to do morally.
Bush is going to learn quickly that the Democrats will turn and
bite the hand that reaches out in friendship. He hasn't
learned that Democrats in Washington are socialists and
Democrats in Texas are really Republicans.
We already saw them turn on him when Dick Gephardt and Tom
Daschle gave the Democratic response. They pooh-poohed
almost all his ideas. Their liberalism made Bush look like
He will soon learn that Republicans can't out Democrat
Democrats. Democrats just move further to the Left.
They twist the facts, mislead and demagogue until they can
impose their tyranny onto the people.
For example, Gephardt and Daschle failed to mention the fact
that it was the Democratic-controlled Congress that spent the
U.S. into a deficit. They inferred that it was only during
Republican administrations that the U.S. ran deficits.
They rewrote history by implying that the 1980s were a time of
economic turmoil. They blamed Reagan for the debt and
failed to mention their spending spree that wasn't slowed until
the Republican Congress in 1997 finally got President Clinton to
agree to a balanced budget.
I hope that the first 30 minutes of Bush's speech was just
garnish. It's there to make the main course look pretty
but shouldn't be consumed. Because if history is any guide, Bush
will get the first half of his agenda and the second half will
arrive to Congress DOA.
