Cracks appear in Bush's armor
Cracks appear in Bush's armor

WASHINGTON - Ever since President Bush entered national politics, he has made a point to avoid the mistakes of his father.

He has distinguished himself from the first President Bush by spurning all talk of tax increases to balance the budget, by focusing on economic problems his father was accused of ignoring and by doing more to appeal to the Republican Party's right wing.

Yet the president may be as vulnerable to a Democratic challenger in 2004 as his father was in 1992, when Bill Clinton was elected president.

1. He avoided making his father's mistakes and instead...
...made a whole list of his own. He keeps up his current track record, and by election day, the only thing that will present a threat is the pity factor.
