It's Now a Trifecta

Well, now it's the last THREE Presidents who started thier terms with thier own party being the majority in Congress, and finished with them as the minority party. Clinton, Bush and Obama. Kind of ironic that each was seen as a breath of fresh air and given the chance to work with a friendly Congress, and all three failed to have their party's hold on Congress hold. Maybe it's an anomoly, but I think not.

I do kinda wonder what Bush might have done had 9/11 not happened.

 

Ashcroft was working hard at stomping out internet porn. Probably could have gotten that cleaned up, passed a gay marriage amendment and with a bit of luck might have been able to keep Terri Schiavo hooked up to life support for the rest of eternity. He did manage to succeed in raising the price of oil, getting an expansion of the Rx benefit for Medicare and massively expand the ReaganPhone program by including cell phones in the deal. :th:

I think with today's media, there is no place to hide for POTUS. It's completely different than it used to be and I agree this will be the norm. People are fickle and expect a lot from Washington but it's not going to happen.

Unlessof course you are a liberal democrat in which case most of the MSM will provide all the cover a POTUS could ask for.

He's been hiding on the golf course for the last six years.

That reminds me... need to buy some ELY because Potus will be spending more time on the links these next two years.
