A comment piece published in Monday’s Wall Street Journal was written by Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. All three are Democrats.
In the commentary, the three delivered a couple of haymakers to President Bush’s administration and policies:
“Our nation is fighting a war in Iraq that has made us less safe. Our planet is imperiled by a global climate crisis that we have done little to combat. Our economy is sliding toward a recession. Wages aren’t keeping pace, as the cost of everything from health care to college is rising. Whether it’s a world-class education, a secure mortgage or a dignified retirement, too many Americans are seeing their dreams slip out of reach.”
And then, after blaming Bush for most everything, they wrote, “We know that the way to win elections is not just by blaming Mr. Bush.” Oh? So what was that litany of problems? Praise for Bush?
