Bush Walks The Walk and Talks The Talk ... Of a Dictator

Bush tries to persuade moderate Republicans to hop on the Radical Right Bandwagon, by ignoring their constituents and siding with him. What ever happened to government of the people, by the people, and for the people?

GREECE, New York (AP) -- President Bush, facing an uphill battle on Social Security in Congress, worked Tuesday to persuade moderate Republicans to resist pressure from constituents and support his ideas for changing the nation's retirement system.

Although the most frightening aspect of this article is where Bush says, “I think more and more people recognize there’s a problem and people are going to say `Go do something about it.’ And those who obstruct reform—no matter what party they’re in—will pay a political price, in my judgment.”

Basically what he’s said here is that if you don’t support his ideas of reform and what he wants to form the government into, then you will be judged and pay a price for not supporting him. There’s a big difference between an opinion and a judgment.
