Dangers of Moderation

One of the dangers of a president trying to appeal to all people, is that he ends up alienating more than had he stuck to his core beliefs in the first place.

Take these conservative vistors to New York, already encamped at the Plaza Hotel in anticipation of next week’s Republican convention. They’re clearly concerned that President Bush has gone to far to the left to appeal to undecideds, moderates, and liberals. So they’re gently reminding him that the truth is often located in a more conservative destination.

Well, that’s the message I got out of it, anyhow….
