Good Advice for President Bush

I’ve been writing the last few days about Laura Ingraham’s comments on NBC’s Today Show. Now, Laura has come out with some very good advice for the President, on how he can turn around his second term. The key is to focus on the base that elected him and energize them for 2006 and 2008. She basically has four points on which the administration should rally:

  1. Promote the successes of the Iraq War and how it has improved the lives of Americans.
  2. Enforce the Borders
  3. Control and cut spending, vetoing some spending legislation
  4. Keep fighting for judicial confirmations at the lower court levels.

Laura is on a tear lately. She’s always been good, but she’s starting to position herself as a major voice in Conservativism, and could become the female equivalent to Rush Limbaugh as time goes by. The full text of her email can be found here.

One aspect of Laura’s point has me wondering. With Congressional Republicans distancing itself from the President in 2006, grandstanding on a Presidential veto may help some Republicans at some local levels, making it difficult to cut the pork at this point in Bush’s Administration and as a call for unifying Republicans.

Bush should have come to Washington distrustful of the Democrat’s agenda and intentions, but he didn’t. He had dinner with the Fins instead and placated Puff Daschle until January 2003. I think it’s too late to rally Republicans this year on the spending issue– not until Boehner gets control of things in the House. The other issues, especially Iraq, are ones that can be used to rally the base this year.
