What Reagan did at the time turned out to be the right thing to do. The economy looks somewhat better and W. Bushes riverboat gambles are working. Reagan was moderated by an opppositional Congress. The previous administration was moderated by Republican congress. Mixed government appeares to work best. W. Bush has no countervailing force other than cloture in the Senate (so what). W. Bush looks like it will work out in the short term, but like the environment, it could have long term consequences (noone knows). Medically, recent HIPPA regulations require unneccary and worthless and meaningless paperwork that daunts previous red tape (it does absolutely no good, sort of like his bumbling with education).

Defense needs more long term focus which would include more focus on espionage/security/AlQueda
