The country is in a disagreeable mood and ready for a change

I'm one of those people:

Fight the War on Terror,

Balance the budget,

Secure our borders.

If any party acted to be willing and able to do these things, I would change to that party. In the meantime, I appear to be stuck voting for Republicans and hoping they act conservative.

>>>>>You could almost hear cheers of joy coming from the White House. President Bush, it seems, is back, no longer hopelessly unpopular and embattled.

LOL I guess at this point any improvement in public opinion is a plus for the Prez and the GOP`s election chances. One problem. Fred Barnes isn't being entirely honest. He never mentions the immigration issue. Just a minor oversight on his part, I'm sure.

>>>>Besides national security, the issue that most energizes conservatives and Republicans is judges.

At this point, I'd rather see the GOP Congress demand spending cuts, starting with a roll back of pork barrel earmarks. Eliminating part or all of the thousands of earmarks in the current budget would be a responsible decision.

On the other hand congress could increase spending at the rate it increased spending during the Ronald Reagan administration.

If you liked doubling government spending in 8 years you loved Ronald Reagan and Reagan Man does.
