Alex Knapp thinks the President needs to get his priorities in order.
I think Bush’s general strategy in most of his policy issues has been pretty clear: ASK for the world, and get what you wanted originally.
With tax cuts, he asked for a HUGE tax cut, when the Dems wanted NO tax cut. What we got was somewhere in the middle.
Same with Education, ending up with a compromise with *gulp* Kennedy and Kerry!
Maybe the same here: ask for a constitutional ammendment, in hopes that cooler heads prevail and we end up with some ‘civil union’ nationwide type compromise.
This is far better than mayors and judges dictating law for us.
Why is it the President needs to get his priorities in order?
Obviously, we are not at war and the country would rather focus on other things. He’s doing the will of the people. Shouldn’t the will of the people be of first priority?
After all, they’re going to vote him out (or stay home which effectively does the same thing) because he’s not paying attention to their will. After all, terrorism is #4 on the list.
And why is his stance such a shocker? Hasn’t he been making noises about which way he leans?
