I'd actually be interested in what rcarr328 might think about this issue specifically.
Well, gee, Skin, I've made no secret of my opinion of President Bush's spending (it's mentioned in at lest two of those 100000000000000 other Bush threads).
I agree with the President on the war. I agree with him on tax cuts. But I think he should be more willing to use his veto when it comes to spending proposals...mainly prescription drugs, health care, and social security. I also vehemently disagree with his proposal for illegal immigrants.
This is what dissapoints me about President Bush: his willingness to triangulate. It worked for Clinton - he'd push through a few conservative measures in order to get moderate conservative voters. This is what I disagree with the President on - pushing through liberal spending measures in order to get moderate liberal voters.
