|I have to agree with Glenn Beck here. He was like a pot of tepid water, slowly heating up. Eight years ago, I naively considered it possible that Social Security would be gone, or at least, optional (after all, this is a "free country," right?), or at least scaled back. Instead, we got the Medicare Prescription drug plan...isn't that like me demanding that Cigna, to which I no longer pay premimus, pay for my prescriptions? And why couldn't he use the bully pulpit to expose the insanity of Barney Frank instead of actively promoting the "ownership" society?|
Then, the pasty resistance (or pièce de résistance, but I hate to use French phraseology), was the bailouts.
When are we going to get a President that realizes that any bill that crosses his desk has to be damn good to warrant a signature? I should think that in the best of circumstances, a 10 percent signature rate would be a lofty limit. If any bill has any possibililty to infringe liberty of a single citizen, it deserves a veto. I wish even Reagan could have done that.
