LARRY KUDLOW: DON'T GO WOBBLY:
Although White House Budget Director Rob Portman told me on Tuesday’s show that there would be no compromise deal on the pork section of the Iraq funding bill, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) told me last night there could in fact be a deal.
Today’s Wall Street Journal also suggests a deal could be in the works. Apparently, rumors of pork’s death have been greatly exaggerated.
Any compromise deal on this roughly $25 billion of pork would seriously dilute the President’s strong message that he’s been selling for nearly ten straight days in his constant criticism of the Democrats.
A little backbone from the White House, please?
