Bush – Swing for the fences
Fred Barnes in the Weekly Standard suggests how the President can best use his remaining time in office.
*â€‚Keep John Bolton
*â€‚Give judicial nominees recess appointments.
*â€‚Talk up the military option in Iran.
*â€‚Apply the Kennedy model to North Korea.
*â€‚Push a radical energy independence plan.
*â€‚Implement the military option and take out all of Iran’s nuclear facilities.
The details are important so please don’t react until reading the article.
I don’t necessarily agree with most of these and I would like to add a few more:
*To aquiesce to all of the largely bi-partisan proposals moving through Congress.
*Dramatic tax simplification to restore integrity to the system and liberate free market processes.
Iraq is a mess but Bush could dilute this drag on his legacy by swinging for the fences on other issues and leave the country better off than he found it.
