Bush Whacks


Two stories in today's Washington Times discuss ways in which President Bush is taking heat for being what he is and doing what he's doing.

The first talks about Bush losing some campaign donations due to his recently announced illegal immigrant proposal. The second is about a bunch of conservative groups who are fed up with the prez's free-spending ways. He may be on the wagon, they say, but he's still spending like a drunken sailor.

Among his base and moderates, Bush has benefited from the nastyish Dem race for the presidential nomination–and from hyperbolic criticism (e.g., Bush = Hitler) from the far left. But it seems likely he'll be taking more and more heat from his own base over the next few months, too.
