The SCHIP Veto. Not just bad choices -- Stupid-Bad choices....


The SCHIP veto in a wide-screen view:

You know, if this President had any history at all of vetoing spending bills and trying to hold down budget overruns and debt, I wouldn't react to his veto here....

In reality, President Bush is just obeying his masters. Corporate healthcare and Big Tobacco supported Senators are the ones pulling his strings.

So taxes ARE bad... so is overspending Government, which Bush has been cheering on for seven years now, and you can't have a spending spree without taxes to match -- Well, you evidently can, but at the cost of our economy and any smoke-and-mirrors value the dollar might still have.

Am I to believe that it's ok to tax the middle class (what there are left) and not tax tobacco OR more importantly, hedge fund managers?

This Administration has been nothing but stupid-bad choices. If we survive it, it may still be the death of any chance at anything resembling a National consensus among Conservatives. Conservatives may survive on a local level, but from now on every time a Real Conservative runs for National office, all the Libs will have to say is "Bush".

Mike Tuggle seems to think that conservatism can only work at the local level, anyway. However, I wonder if the brainwashing of public schools and media have rendered most "communities" incapable of acting locally anymore. Most of my neighbors are whipped, so to speak, and we can't seem to band together to do anything about neighborhood issues. If that's the case, it is doubtful that anything good will come from on high.

Yeah, what happened to the "neighborhood" anyway? Now it's just "The Hood".
