Bush is sworn in Thursday. Can you feel the excitement here at Craigorian Chant? We, much like the Nation, are of two minds as to whether the President is a divider or a uniter. You will all be happy to know that his agenda is already in trouble:
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Calif.) predicted yesterday that partisan warfare over Social Security will quickly render President Bush's plan "a dead horse" and called on Congress to undertake a broader review of the problems of an aging nation.
Every day after Thursday is a cut to the Bush Administration. Their biggest enemy is time. Every day they have to go get a GOP Congressman back on the reservation is one day less to push their agenda forward. About all we can hope for is to slow them down as much as we can.
