"Makin'" Bacon - Concern Wanker of the Week
"Obama has not emphasized any signature domestic issue, or signaled that he would take his party in a specific direction on policy, as Bill Clinton did with his 'New Democrat' proposals in 1992 that emphasized welfare reform or as George W. Bush did with his 'compassionate conservatism' in 2000, when he called on Republicans to focus more on issues such as education." Perry "Makin'" Bacon, in today's WaPo. Yeah, Perry, and how did those assministrations turn out for us? Clinton's was noted for its fragmented, boutique approach to policy after the Dems lost Congress in 1994; welfare reform was, along with NAFTA, heavily compromised. And Bush's compassionate conservatism and edumacation focus? 'Nuff said.
