The Patriot Act was a Federal law past to combat terrorism in a more aggressive way as it does illegal drug dealing, mafias and mobs. During its movement through the Congress, the Bush Administration and its suppertors blanketed the Country with their advocacy to pass the Patriot Act. Ever since then, the Bush Administration and its supporters are on the defensive to reiterate its legitimacy. Now that parts of the Act are going to expire, they want to make the case AGAIN! The reason for this effort is simple. Left-wing Liberals do not recognize political cease fires, Republicans keep adhering to them. Republicans in all areas continute to lack political courage to combat the mortar rounds and roadside bombings perpetrated by Left-wing Liberals. So now, President Bush is restating the same thing that he stated before instead of building on top of it. Just think of all of the other issues gone to the side because of this "rebuilding" aproach to moving the President's agenda. Judicial nominees, energy issues, transporation issues, excessive taxation, and much more are "dying on the vine" due to the constant nursing that Republicans are giving to people who hate him. The only thing that can change this situation is that President Bush must force the agenda to the conserrvative den. For example, when journalists want to ask President Bush a question, he should only answer when he is in the company of his core constituency. That alone will force the the Liberal cabal in media to discuss more of the conservative agenda and keep control of the deebate. I only wish that President would listen to his core - for a change!
