10/18/2005: From the Conservative Wish List...
... a few conservative principles.
Today GEM quote:
"...Yet if there is anything that defines conservatism in America, it is hostility to government expansion. The idea of big government conservatism, a term often used to describe Bush's philosophy, is a contradiction in terms.
Conservative intellectuals have known this for a long time, but looked the other way for various reasons. Some thought the war on terror trumped every other issue. If a few billion dollars had to be wasted to buy the votes needed to win the war, then so be it, many conservatives have argued. Others say that Bush never ran as a conservative in the first place, so there is no betrayal here, only a failure by conservatives to see what he has been all along.
Of course, this doesn't say much for the conservative movement. At best, conservatives were naive about Bush. At worst, they sold out much of what they claim to believe in."
-- Bruce Bartlett (RCP).
But some of US have noted (for the record) that Child-In-Chief was NEVER your grandfather's type of Conservative - and not really a *conservative* at all, but a psuedo-Christian Radical Neo-con with the intellect of a Mole RAT.
And now to the Chagrin of Conservatives and those Remorse-Buyers- They, We, All of Us, are now STUCK with this hideously inept and incompetent leadership and his criminal bAdminstration. Good Going Conservative Morons! You Four More Years idiots!
And, according to the "Official GWB 'Days Left in Office' Countdown Clock" (DBV's sidebar) we only have 1189 days more of this crap to go. Enough time for GW and his evil crew to think of lots more ways to ruin this country and drive a permanent stake through its heart and soul.
BLEH on all of you Conservatives sellouts!
