The State of the Union Address

You know President Bush has the won the rhetorical battle with the Democrats when the prepared responses of both Pelosi and Daschle began: "The state of our union is strong." Daschle is still talking as I write this, and I just heard how college tuition has gone up $600/year and somehow Bush is responsible for this. The Dems are in big trouble.

The thing that struck me most about the president’s speech is that though he’s taking fire from the right and left on many different issues, he has great character to follow his vision for what he thinks is right for America, regardless of votes or opposition. That, I think, is the definition of a good statesman. No Clinton waffling here. Of course, I applaud those that do the same thing on the Left even if I ultimately disagree with their vision for America. Bush seems to be working under the assumption of "let the people decide" rather than "let the people and their polls guide" what he does. This guy continually reminds me of Churchill. A discussion of all of his policies - that’s a whole other posting!
