When George Bush the Younger was first elected, and the republicans controlled congress, here’s what I thought:
I’m happy that all the government is on the same page. Now they can actually accomplish something, even if it’s not something that I want. At least they can do something. If it makes the country better, then that’s great. If not, then we’ll know that their way isn’t necessarily the best way.
I feel the same way now. Obama’s administration has made some real changes, whether you like them or not. A selection:
Changes to NASA
Changes to Equity compliance (Thanks, Dorie)
Lower taxes for most people
So let’s see how the country is in a few years. It will probably be somewhere different from where it is today.
