Democrats To Widen Conflict With Bush
Some on Both Sides See Plans as Risky
By Jonathan Weisman -- Washington Post Staff Writer
Even as their confrontation with President Bush over Iraq escalates, emboldened congressional Democrats are challenging the White House on a range of issues -- such as unionization of airport security workers and the loosening of presidential secrecy orders -- with even more dramatic showdowns coming soon.
For his part, Bush, who also finds himself under assault for the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, the conduct of the Iraq war and alleged abuses in government surveillance by the FBI, is holding firm. Though he has vetoed only one piece of legislation since taking office, he has vowed to veto 16 bills that have passed either the House or the Senate in the three months since Democrats took control of Congress.

While it MAY be risky, I remember who was blamed for the 'gridlock government' when Bush Senior was vetoing every bill that came his way when HE was president. Congress emerged from that brawl smelling like a rose while Bush-daddy just came out smelling. And then, he lost the election.
While it's too late to hope for THAT rosy outcome, those who back Bush just might find themselves at the wrong end of the argument. And wouldn't THAT be lovely?
W, of course, doesn't learn from his OWN mistakes--let alone those of someone else--but some folks in Congress just might.
