Changes in Bush's policies

The Opinion page column "Is Clinton Trying to Have It Both Ways on Gulf War?," March 17, is right on the mark. Still, I'm surprised the the author has not made similar observations regarding George Bush's integrity.

Over the past 12 years Mr. Bush has made 180 degree turns in his stands on abortion, "voodoo economics," and tax increases, all in the name of political expediency. He now regrets the bipartisan tax agreement only because of the "flak" it has caused him. He is also the leader who called for a kinder, gentler America and gave us Willie Horton, and urged the Kurds and Shiites of Iraq to rise up before watching them gunned down.
