A good sign

Bush released his dead-on-arrival budget today. He says “I strongly believe Congress needs to listen to a budget which has no tax increase”. Also, he wants a line-item veto because “It’s one thing to get the size of the budget pie right; it’s another thing to make sure that the slices in that pie meet national priorities.” So the budget is a pie, and we need to listen to that pie.

Mmm, pie.

Asked about Iraq: “I appreciate the fact that the Iraqi government is anxious to get security inside the capital of the country. That’s a good sign. It’s a good sign that there’s a sense of concern and anxiety.”
