Not Walking Or Talking Like A (Lame) Duck

So says Janet Hook of the L.A. Times (hat tip to RealClearPolitics), who paints a portrait of a George Bush undeterred by sagging poll numbers, sniping from the media, and a foot-dragging Congress. Hook says Bush's tenacity (or call it stubbornness, if you prefer) will suit him well as he faces increasingly bleak prospects for some of his pet reforms. That's what I love about Bush - the very traits that infuriate his critics are what make him a most effective president. The biggest problem Bush faces, and Hook spells it out, as well, is a reluctant Congress that faces 2006 with well they should (more on that cryptic ending later in the weekend)...
