Hobbs on Bush

Bill Hobbs (via Instapundit) ponders why our President Bush is so low in the polls despite a solid record of accomplishment overall, and has some advice for our forlorn president:

George W. Bush isn't at 29 percent because he's lost support among moderates and liberals - he's at 29 percent because he has been too willing to cave in to moderates and liberals.

The recipe for restoring his popularity to above 50 percent is simple: Bush must screw the Left every chance he gets.

He details the agenda on immigration, the budget, the war, etc., and it sounds pretty good to me. Except that Bush should make sure he does so with "compassion," just to tweak the Democrats a bit more for failing to respond in a more positive way to his gesture of outreach during his first term.

Bush visits Yuma

The President paid a visit to one of the major hot spots in our porous border with Mexico, the area around Yuma, Arizona. I'm not sure that riding in that Border Patrol dune buggy was the best P.R. move, however. For some thoughtful analysis of the Posse comitatus issue discussed on Tuesday, see the article by Major Craig T. Trebilcock.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
