Bush sharpens budget attack on Democrats - Yahoo! News: "'They are working to bring back the failed tax-and-spend policies of the past,' he said in his weekly radio address.Adding, "Come on! They haven't even invaded a country on false intelligence or subverted the Constitution. They haven't done anything to further ruin our environment. And they call themselves politicians."
'Democrats are failing in their responsibility to make tough decisions and spend the people's money wisely.'"
In other news, perhaps even the Republicans are tiring of the Vice Tyrant. Cheney fatigue is the subject of many Republican discussions. But who knew Orrin Hatch was so funny?
Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, branded as "unfounded" Cheney's claim to extra protections for his office because of his constitutional powers to preside over the Senate and break ties.Adding, "he hit that old man in the face after only 4 or 5 beers! Of course, the old man apologized later. Which is good."
"I don't think he handles too many documents in that capacity. He handles a gavel. That's about all he handles," Specter said in an interview.
Added Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah: "I don't know what he meant by that. I think he understands what his role is."
Still, Hatch said, Cheney continues to be valuable to the president. "Everybody knows he's a straight shooter. I know that he and the president work very closely together. And I think there's a good reason for it."
