It's About Time

I don’t know why these things take so long. Mr. President, we’ve been waiting for you…

Bush hits Democratic ‘agenda of the roadblock’

President Bush last night ripped the Democratic Party as do-nothing obstructionists bent on derailing his reform agenda, saying that on issue after issue, Democratic leaders in Congress ‘stand for nothing except obstruction, and this is not leadership.’

‘If leaders of the other party have innovative ideas, let’s hear them. But if they have no ideas or policies except obstruction, they should step aside and let others lead,’ Mr. Bush said to thunderous applause from more than 5,000 supporters.

The president, who has spent the past several months seeking consensus on his Social Security reform package and reaching out to Democrats with non-confrontational rhetoric, said opposition party leaders are pursuing ‘the philosophy of the stop sign, the agenda of the roadblock, and our country and our children deserve better.’

‘Political parties that choose the path of obstruction will not gain the trust of the American people,’ he said at the event dubbed ‘the 2005 President’s Dinner.’

Mr. Bush said political parties can take one of two approaches: ‘One approach is to lead, to focus on the people’s business, to take on the tough problems, and that is exactly what our party is doing.

‘The other approach is to simply do nothing, to delay solutions, obstruct progress, refuse to take responsibility. Members of the other party have worked with us to achieve important reforms on some issues, yet too often, their leadership prefers to block the ideas of others.’

Keep on keeping on George. We like a president who stands up and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.

Americans need to understand what’s happening in Washington DC. Americans need to start paying attention to the news. Americans need to be able understand the difference between a group enacting solutions and a mob of obstructionists.

Democrats need to wake up and understand that Americans want their leaders to LEAD.
