Congressional Republicans Turning On Bush
Monday, 2004 December 20 - 11:17 pm
Huh. Who (besides ME) would have seen this one coming.

A Washington Post article yesterday noted how congressional Republicans were starting to challenge some of Bush's plans lately.

Among the things those Republicans are starting to find objectionable: allowing guest-worker privileges for illegal immigrants; poor handling of the intelligence reform legislation; lack of advancement in tax reform; the fiscal irresponsibility of Social Security privatization; and big-government federalism with a lack of concern for states' rights.

Several other articles recently have noted how some Republicans have started to become critical of Rumsfeld's handling of the Iraq war. 56% of Americans now believe the war was not worth the cost in human lives, and 70% believe the level of casualties are unacceptable. (I'm trying to figure out that other 30% who believe it's acceptable that over a thousand Americans have died.)

I've said all along, Bush is not even a good Republican, much less a good President. Maybe people are starting to figure that out.

I've amended the Washington Post article link to point directly to the original article, instead of the Yahoo cached version. You may need to register with washingtonpost.com to read the article now, though.
