A meeting with GOP Cong. leadership. We had a session on Contra aid which Dems. are opposing. Then a session on the budget. Our opponents want us to join them in a summit. Well we’ve presented a budget—they haven’t. We all agreed it would be silly to have a summit before both sides have presented their budgets. It was a good meeting.
Then a very brief N.S.C. meeting—talked about tone I should take if we do a Foreign Policy speech soon. We have to tread a narrow path—acknowledging the Soviet arms proposal etc. but at same time pointing out their intransagince in Afghanistan etc.
Lunch with V.P. then a domestic policy council meeting re my upcoming meeting in Canada and what can we come up with re acid rain to be of help to our friend Mulroney who is being assailed as too friendly to the U.S. At same time we are being assailed as not keeping our bargain on acid rain program. I now have several options facing me as to just what we do. A dental appointment then upstairs.
