Gee, who does this sound like?

bq. “Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” –Joseph Story
Memo to President Bush: stop flattering the seasoned citizens of this country over Social Security, Medicare, prescription drug benefits, and other unconstitutional drivel. Stop trying to appease your opponents across the aisle by vetoing unconstitutional legislation, like the education funding and campaign finance reform bills you inked your signature on. Be honest, like you have in the war on terror, and those that put you in to office will continue to support you.
