... regardless of who it is.
GWB has kept his campaign promises.
- He campaigned in 2000 on No Child Left Behind. It was not long into his administration that it became a law.
- He campaigned in 2000 on tax cuts. It was not long into his administration that they were enacted.
- He campaigned in 2004 on social security reform. It was not long into his second term that he made it a major priority, in spite of the Senate's blockade.
- He campaigned in 2004 on winning the Global War on Terror. It has been his main priority since 9-11, and he has worked toward victory in Iraq and its independence, the passage of the Patriot Act, and more.
- He campaigned in 2004 on nominating "strict constructionists" to the Supreme Court. (With the exception of campaign finance reform where he caved), do we have any reason to think that he will not keep his word now?
GWB learned a big political lesson when his father said "read my lips." He won't make the same mistake of breaking a campaign promise. His people have vetted whomever his nominee to SCOTUS is. It will be a strict constructionist. Of this I am confident.
