Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

My Wishlist for the President
Here are the 3 things I hope to see from President Bush this year:
1. An honest admission of the challenge faced in Iraq, an acceptance of responsibility for mistakes that have been made to date, and a promise to listen to world opinion for how to remake the country.
2. Straight talk about social security. Don't try to trick us by describing the situation as a crisis, when you and your experts know well that it is not. If you want to change the system then argue your side fair and square; don't use your pulpit to spread disinformation.
3. Acknowledge the staggering nature of the national debt and realize you must give up on further tax cuts for now because you are running a war, rich people are doing just fine, and domestic programs helping the voiceless is a far better use of the money.
