Bush helps the public by helping improve the economy

Does a quick look at the subtitle of your editorial of Jan. 3, "...the Bush administration already is finding new ways to help business at the expense of the public," not reveal the flawed thinking?
"The public" is that entity (with the strenuous help of the media) that is demanding the improvement of the economy! Bush was blamed for the bad economy. Now that the economy is good, will it be said that he had nothing to do with the change? And, now that the economy has changed, will it be said that, "Well, yes, we have these indications, but the common person has not really been helped?" (Yes, that's already been said.)
Sun, please let us know your agenda for Bush's proceedings in helping the economy so he can read and make sure he does not do anything wrong. I thought helping business equalled helping the economy.
Bush is an outdoorsman who obviously desires preservation of beauty and eco-systems all over America. However, anyone who has ever owned a business is aware of how over-restrictive government can be, and there are always two sides to a story.
If Bush is anti-environmental, please give us a view of his overall disdain for the environment rather than a knee-jerk account of a couple of carrots thrown to a corporate world that is crawling on its knees under the burden of oppressive government regulations promulgated by reflex actions in the past, which heroically saved the environment with zero regard for anything else.
Even with regard to something so permanently vital as the health, as it were, of the Earth and its atmosphere, we still need balance and foresight. Perhaps most of all, we need to allow our President to function without first tying both of his hands behind his back.
