THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS: Liz Mair reports that she:
sat down to watch the State of the Union with some fellow Northern Virginia [Young Republicans] last night with very, very low expectations.
Her verdict?
All in all, the speech was OK. Not a winner, but OK. Now, I await the details on some of the finer points, to see how truly objectionable some of what was proposed may actually be.
I'm curious about the details too. Health insurance? New ethanol production? Not my area of expertise.

On foreign policy, Bush reiterated the foundational principles of his approach to Iraq and the War on Terror. With those, I firmly agree. As always, the real issue seems to be effective implementation (or lack thereof).

Just curious, David. This seems right up your alley. Why no mention?
 
Thanks for the link, Randy. FYI, I don't read the Times on a regular basis, just the post.
 
I'd appreciate having David write an essay on how the Iraq war has helped the United States. Since he regards himself as a conservative, he might also explain how the war has helped the Republican party.
