Resolved: Less Bush Bashing

But this blogger will continue to go after Cheney if he keeps up talk about war for regime change.

Even bloggers should make New Year's resolutions. Here are mine for 2008:

  1. I resolve to hammer President Bush a little less because he has already secured his place alongside Warren G. Harding.

  2. I resolve to stay after Vice President Cheney and his neocon friends if he continues his bellicose views about regime change.

  3. I resolve to continue to jump all over the National Rifle Association and its unwillingness to compromise on anything.

  4. I resolve to mention political polls only if they are based on the issues and not on the horse race.

  5. I resolve to follow action or inaction in Congress and be as tough on Democrats as on Republicans. It will be difficult.

  6. I resolve to worry more about the state of newspapers in the country without getting maudlin about it.

  7. I resolve to follow more closely innovations in the 50 states as Congress dawdles in partisan deadlock.

  8. I resolve to blast Republicans who insist on more tax cuts without paying for the billions spent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  9. I resolve to mention a certain CNN commentator only by his initials—L.D.—if he continues with his so-called newscasts on immigration.

  10. Finally, I wish all readers a happy and healthy New Year. For as my best pal, Chairman Bill Giles of the Philadelphia Phillies, often says: "Life is all about family and friends." He's right.
