Bush arrogance offends even his allies
“President Bush’s relationship with Republicans in Congress is showing signs of strain at the very moment he needs them most.
“The president is having more trouble than he should” getting his priorities through Congress, says Sen. Trent Lott.
Some Republican leaders in Congress complain that Bush doesn’t seek their advice often enough. Senate moderates are frustrated that he sometimes doesn’t seem willing to negotiate. Some Republicans say the president is disdainful of their co-equal branch of government.”
