Subject: RE: BS: MORE credit for Bush
Dennis Miller is right. However, the first obligation of a leader is to lead, not to pander to his constituents' lowest impulses. That's true even when our leaders are elected. So far, GWB really hasn't tried to get people to focus honestly on the tough choices, so even if the SUV drivers share the blame, I'm not inclined to let Bush off the hook.
