Bill Kristol declares President Bush “A Recuperating Duck”:
For a president who is (allegedly) the lamest of lame ducks, George W. Bush had a pretty good month of May. Not quite a merry month of May. Certainly not a Lerner-and-Loewe-like lusty month of May. But a pretty good month, and perhaps a sign of better things to come.Tax cuts were extended, the economy is booming, and the Iraqi government is coalescing. Given the recent polls, Dubya’s got nowhere to go but up.
