"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
It's hard to see Bush as a miserable failure, when he has accomplished essentially everything he set out to do--Medicare reform, perscription drug benefits, No Child Left Behind and the energy bill. He also did some things that weren't necessarily on his original to do list, such as deposing the Taliban and deposing Saddam. His only campaign promise yet to be fulfilled is Social Security Reform, which he will be campaigning on hard for 2004. We won't know how his policies will affect things for a while, but as a politician, it is ridiculous to call him a miserable failure, especially when we all know who the real miserable failure is. In fact, like some people, I think he is a rather great president.
