Political Poseurs

“The greatest disgrace of these past weeks has not been the naysaying; it’s been the shabby way the naysayers treated the President. Americans are a hopeful people, & until the President betrays us, as Dubya did, we don’t like no-name Congressmen & bloviating Senators denegrating the President, especially when the President treats even the petty bloviators with respect.

The President is the winner of the month not because he got his historic bill through the Congress, but because he maintained his dignity while his Republican critics showed themselves to be folks you wouldn’t let in the house.”
