Bush and "the Poor People Stuff"

David Kuo, a former White House official with the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives (oh, you remember "compassionate conservatism," surely!) published an essay on BeliefNet.com yesterday that says El Presidente was all boot and no cattle when it came to actually helping the poor: "No administration since LBJ's has had a more successful legislative track record than this one," wrote Kuo. "From tax cuts to Medicare, the White House gets what the White House really wants. It never really wanted the 'poor people stuff.' "
