Do you really think Big Business gives two #s about the common man? All they look at is their bottom line. If you ever work in any factory, count the number of Mexicans that work their. Alot of companies employ Illegal Aliens to do labor for less than minimum wage. If any business could get away with having nothing but illegal labor, they would.

It's not so much a denial as it is an openness to possibility
We have an economic team, in this administration, that is driven by nothing more than ideology. Because of that, the input that government can provide to spur business was often if not always bypassed.
If it is spurred by idealogy, it is not a republican one. Otherwise he would not have set up Homeland Security which increases government size (a big mistake if you ask me).
Reduced Service Time - A NG pilot NOT showing up for rotation gets sent to active duty. Period. You honestly think that, which is one thing the White House has admitted to, a pilot would get a free pass to go work a campaign desk today, much less then? Come on.
With the reduction in forces (RIF) which happens at the end of armed conflict sometimes (which is happening now in the Air Force) I can certainly see that happening. As much has been said by quite a few members at the time. In addition, they would allow extended time to aid in transition to the private sector. This is not nessisarily the truth of Bush, but again possible.
Lying repeatedly - You honestly think that Iraq was a clear & present danger to the US? It was sold as that. It's been proven not to have been; not on faulty intelligence, but selective use of the intelligence provided. Here's what they said: www.abovetopsecret.com...
No, I did not see them as a clear and present danger, especially now that we have found the WMD programs to be a corrupted front to steal. There was no product of said programs so nothing could be sold to terrorists. But is it not true that they were a destablizing element in the region? Also, the government resolved to get Saddam out of power by policy in 1998 signed by Clinton in the Iraqi Liberation Act. Although it does not prescribe military force, this change could be attribulted to 9-11 policy change.
