Bush antagonizes tobacco growers

The Washington Post reports here ("Tobacco States Fume Over Bush Remarks, 5/16/04) that President Bush has stepped in it with his stated opposition to a federal buyout for tobacco growers. The article quotes Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode, who said "I've heard from any number of good Republicans who said they'll either stay home or vote Democrat in the fall if the White House doesn't change its position."
