THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY comes from Virginia Postrel, who writes:

Bush’s fiscal legacy is expanding Medicare, just as his father’s regulatory legacy was the Americans With Disabilities Act. It’s amazing how much damage those Bushes can do by being nice.

There’s a lot about both men to be admired, but fiscal and governmental restraint, unfortunately, isn’t one of their best traits.
