7. He Says What Needs to Be Said and Makes No Bones About It
Edited on Tue Jun-01-04 09:30 AM by Beetwasher
As a result, the modest tax cuts received by the great majority of Americans are, in a fundamental sense, fraudulent.

--snip--

Does Mr. Bush understand that the end result of his policies will be to make most Americans worse off, while enriching the already affluent? Who knows? But the ideologues and political operatives behind his agenda know exactly what they're doing.

--snip--

Of course, voters would never support this agenda if they understood it. That's why dishonesty as illustrated by the administration's consistent reliance on phony accounting, and now by the business with the budget cut memo is such a central feature of the White House political strategy.

--snip--

Right now, it seems that the 2004 election will be a referendum on Mr. Bush's calamitous foreign policy. But something else is at stake: whether he and his party can lock in the unassailable political position they need to proceed with their pro-rich, anti-middle-class economic strategy. And no, I'm not engaging in class warfare. They are.
