    For many months, hardy loyalists of President George W. Bush have sought to frame his legacy by proposing that the controversial choices he made through dramatic, pivotal years will be deemed correct and courageous when we look back on them some years hence.

    The verdict of history, they say, will be kinder than today's partisan-fueled hatefulness indicates. Political wise men as diverse as former New York Mayor Ed Koch and strategist Karl Rove have compared Mr. Bush to Harry S. Truman -- loathed when he left office, now lauded as a greater leader than his contemporaries could admit.

    But Bush supporters may not have to wait so long for vindication. The potential shift in public opinion of Mr. Bush's record is already getting a big assist from an unlikely source -- the rapidly sobering staffers and fans of President-elect Barack Obama.

    Some of Mr. Bush's most controversial decisions -- like holding suspected enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay -- are now being seen in a new light. Democrats in government and media have just discovered that many of the detainees are extremely dangerous men!

    This administration,if we can all survive it,should be very sobering for the old time Democrats.The hard core leftys in their party have led them over the edge with their rabid BDS and now they will have to think things out for themselves.

    The leadership in the house is hell bent on spending every dime we have and madam spearker Pelosi is on a major power trip and thinks she in total control of America.This should point out the incompetance of the tax and spend wing of their party unless they can still find a way to blame it on the dumb conservatives.
