The jury is still out on Bush term
http://www.townhall.com/opinion/columns/tonysnow/2005/0...

Sep 30, 2005
by Tony Snow

It is almost as if the president were playing rope-a-dope, waiting for his political opponents to render themselves permanently ridiculous. But all good things come to an end, and the tactic of waiting for Democrats to choke on their bile may have run its course.


It all comes down to how he defines "compassionate conservatism." Does it mean he intends to spend like a Democrat and tax like a Republican, or that he plans to unveil a free-market alternative to the cruel and desiccating philosophy of welfare-state liberalism? Does he believe conservative policies can do a better job of rooting out material and spiritual poverty, or that limited-government conservatism is a flint-hearted scam?

Critics in both parties are forcing him to declare himself -- Democrats assailing his left flank; Republicans blasting his right. The next four months will determine whether he will ignite a Bush Revolution in domestic policy, or whether he has completed all his significant executive work.

His presidential report card already shows an "A" on foreign policy, but with the exceptions of tax policy and judicial selections, he remains a domestic-policy cipher. It's now up to him to decide whether he will complete his term by earning an A, an F or an incomplete

Or was that man babbling something about bush? Bad writing, useless psudo-information, references to BOXING? Why can't these people at least write something readable. Idiot.

13. I've heard of "grade inflation", but this is ridiculous!
And to think it's usually the right-wingers who harrumph about loosey-goosey liberal profs "lowering the standards"!
