"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

Who's Laughing Now?

Who's laughing now? Thanks to the Senate's voting down the Ensign Bill, Americans that are concerned about the state of Social Security are not.

Back during the 2006 State of the Union it was the "(t)he Democrats, reflecting the bankruptcy of their ideas as well as their fundamental mean-spiritedness, cheered when President Bush took note of the fact that his Social Security reform proposal had been stopped cold." Mark Noonan at Blogs for Bush wasn't laughing when he wrote that, I doubt he's laughing now.

I doubt Michelle Malkin is laughing. Nor are members of the Coalition Against Illegal Immigration. One member of said group, Jim at No Amnesty - Got it? found that Lemuel was none too happy either at Hillbilly Whitetrash.

I wonder if our leadership is happy with themselves. How soon they forget that just a short time ago there was an issue with social security, which many thought didn't need fixing. No problem here I guess....though looks like they just added a new one to that non-issue.
