Kudos go out to President Bush today as he has gone on the offensive on two of our most critical issues we face right now in America.
It was announced on Monday that Bush signed an executive order  requiring all contractors who do business with federal departments and agencies to utilize an electronic verification system to check that all workers are eligible to work in the United States. Not only will this system snare people working who are in the country illegally, but it will also catch those who have overstayed visas and those who came here legally, but are not allowed to work in the U.S..
As a worker verification bill has stalled in the Democrat Congress, President Bush is to be commended for taking such a common sense approach to finding solutions to this national crisis.

Secondly on Monday, President Bush took the occassion of his departure  for his final U.S.-E.U. summit to speak to the press from the White House South Lawn on the need for us to tap our vast domestic natural resources to help solve our expensive energy problems. Bush stated:
"The United States has an opportunity to help increase the supply of oil on the market," thereby easing gasoline prices for hard-working Americans," President Bush said on Monday.
He reminded Congress that he has proposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Continental Shelf to domestic oil drilling -- something that would "help us through this difficult period."
Sometimes it seems that life's most difficult problems have some of the most simple, easily attainable solutions. It makes you wonder sometimes, just how common 'common sense' really is!
