Many on the right were disappointed with the president's State of the Union address and it all comes down to one reason: bigger and bigger government. Robert Novak says it appears the younger Bush is a lot like his father in this regard.
He also points out that Bush's softer rhetoric can be stiffened as this year moves toward the serious business of midterm elections. But what happens to the blueprint for big government laid out by President Bush Tuesday night? That will not be easy to reverse.
I could not agree more.
