Bush had a very good year

President Bush has better poll ratings than the Democratic Congress. But it's better than that. The Iraq situation has improved greatly; the "surge" has worked. The economy is still strong, despite the sub-prime melt down. It looks like the economy will grow by 3% in 2007 with inflation only 2.5%. Jobs are being added at 100,000 per week. People are spending. And President Bush and the Senate Republicans limited the Democrats' big plans to raise taxes and spend even more. He won on S-CHIP (State Children's Health Insurance Program) and the alternative minimum tax. And the Democrats voted something like 60 times to lose the Iraq war now, but lost every time. Larry Kudlow summarizes at the Washington Times.
