Having finally (for the fifitieth fucking time) gotten exactly what he wants from the Democratic congress, President bush today declared he was going to be more reasonable in the future and not make any further demands on congress to show that he can be reasonable, and that good deeds do get rewarded.

But wait...there's more.

Additionally, he decided this morning, so pleased he was to win on his replacement for AG Abu Gonzales, whom he still loves to cuddle with at his Crawford ranchette when Laura's out scaring children at elementary schools before the cameras, he announced he'd also sign the new FISA bill and accept the immunity clause for TelCos that the Democratic majority insists upon.

bush further surprised both his supporters and critics when he said he'd compromise on SCHIP, agreeing to move from his initial 5 billion dollar cap to a whopping 5.0125 billion dollars.

Democrats, responding to bush's largess, said they would try to be a little less obstructionist and give bush "the benefit of the doubt" on issues of such minimal importance as arbitrary timelines for leaving Iraq and supporting rogue nations like Israel and Pakistan with unlimited military aid with no questions asked.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
