Bush is the Comeback Kid

I'm not the only one who noticed. Here's Donald Lambro:

Well, 2007 was the year when people predicted the economy would be in a recession, the Iraq war was lost and Democrats would be dictating policy to a weak, lame-duck president.

But the U.S. economy is still expanding, racking up nearly 5 percent growth in the third quarter, violence has plummeted in Iraq as a result of President Bush's military surge, the first of American troops are coming home and the Democrats lost all of the major legislative fights of the year. So much for those predictions...

It was a remarkable record of achievement by a president who was all but written off by the pundits as an irrelevant chief executive in the twilight of his last term.

I'd say 2007 will be Bush's best year since 2004, when he upset the Democrat frontrunner John Kerry and won the election. I had a feeling all would work out, but its good to have the worse behind us.

Kudos also go the Republican Minority, who stood by their man through thick and thin!
