Roll over and play dead

(Via Worldnet Daily)

President Bush on Wednesday said increasing the national minimum wage is likely an issue on which he could cooperate with Democratic leaders in Congress.

"I believe in a lot of issues we can find common ground and there's a significant difference between common ground and abandoning principles," the president said in a news conference a day after midterm elections in which Democrats gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Maybe there is a difference between common ground and abandoning principles, but I'm not sure this President knows it. I'd feel a lot better if he put the Democrats (and the remaining Republicans) on notice, saying something like "I'm a born-again conservative and I'm warming up my veto pen!" Of course, that is highly unlikely.

2008 is looking dimmer and dimmer.
