It seems hardly a day goes by that I'm not, as an editor of, assigning or editing a news story on Bush and his small business policies. But every day is different. One day, it's Bush proclaiming that small business owners hold the key to the economic strength of the U.S. economy and pushing for small business-friendly association health plans and tort reform. Then, it's a story on how the Small Business Administration, an appointed unit of government, has received the tight-fisted treatment from the White House.

So which is it? To borrow from the president himself: President Bush, are you with us or are you against us?

What do you think? In its actions, has the Bush administration really been as pro-small business as it sounds?
