"HAS BUSH LOST SOME CLOUT?"
Ron Hutchenson of The Inquirer asks in today's Inquirer, "Has Bush lost some clout?" King Bush has had back-to-back setbacks in the legislature: a forced compromise on the filibuster of judicial nominees and a vote to expand federal funding for stem-cell research. Both issues, despite a Republican controlled Congress, made King George sweat. When Bush was re-elected, he taughted a mandate. But we all know Bush's mastery of the english language certainly is not good. And on his inauguration, I am sure Bush thought he would have smooth sailing for the next 4 years. However, no president, even with a majority of his party in Congress, has it easy. Sometimes one's colleagues are even more critical. So, I can only hope that King George is loosing some clout.
