The Democratic Response

THE DEMOCRATIC RESPONSE….I don’t feel like blogging about the Democratic response, but can I ask why it is that Bush’s only references to past presidents were to FDR and Clinton, while Harry Reid’s only reference was to Eisenhower? Shouldn’t these guys be flogging their own presidents, not the other guys?

UPDATE: OK, the reference to opposing gambling with Social Security, “and that comes from a senator who represents Las Vegas,” wasn’t bad.
