"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

SOTU 2006

I enjoyed the speech last night, although there were a couple of things that could use a little work.

One, I'm not crazy about pissing too much money into New Orleans without some type of accountability. We don't need to be rebuilding a city that may just waste money that could be well spent.

Two, I don't like the guest worker part of the immigration issue; I'm not against it entirely, just the expected timing of it. I don't see how we can start a program like the president describes (or anyone describes for that matter), until the borders are under some kind of control. How do you legally allow a certain number of people through for the sake of work when you don't really know the exact number of people actually entering?
