Its All In the Timing

I guess one of the benefits of having the lowest approval ratings in decades is that W can threaten to veto increased funding for poor kids health care one day and then announce plans to lower corporate taxes the next. Decreasing entitlement programs and decreasing taxes has long been a part of the GOP platform. But one really has to wonder about the wisdom behind the timing of the two. If he keeps this up he'll supply the Dems with everything they need to completely solidify their hold on Congress and win the White House or force a minor congressional rebellion so that incumbent Republicans can stay in office.
