I found it interesting how quickly the Republicans came out against the President’s budget yesterday. They were on television condemning it within two minutes of its release. They sure are fast readers!

Also, I enjoyed our new, more aggressive press corps this morning. They were asking the tough questions that they should be asking. It would have been nice if they had acted this way with George W. Bush.
