Hey Republicans..., Bush is a liberal !
It occurs to me that being a republican these days must not be very pleasant. Not only has GWB avoided the principles of conservatism for ya', but when he finds himself in a pickle poll-wise (don't believe it when Tony Snow says he doesn't look at them..) he rolls out Gays, Guns and God to try and rev up the base.... or better said, most of you die-hard Republicans.
I fee ya,.. I really do. I got hosed a couple of times by Reagan. And when Bush 41 pledged the famous "read my lips, no new taxes" and went ahead and raised them anyway,... I felt de-virginized again. So in the spirit of giving Republicans just as much lumber as I lay to the Democrats I submit the following point. The boy is a liberal.
He promised "no nation building" and stuck it to you anyway by pumping more money in Iraq and Af-crap-astan than he's pumped into any combination of Urban or Rural development, period. Even after hammering Clinton on this very subject you would think it would have been seared in his mind as to what promises to break and which not to. Regardless of where the hell and what foreign Country the money is going to, if he is spending on nation building, that is being a liberal..... (You got hosed!). What part of "Small Government" does he believe in? Not to say that a prescription drug benefit is not a noble intent. Even my libertarian brain acknowledges that we can't expect people to spend their Social Security on medicine that comes from a systems that does not fully adhere to the principles of fair market competition. The pharmaceutical companies have been riding the Health Departments largesse for decades and has done it mostly under the press' radar. This Godzilla of an entitlement is going to make Social Security and Medicare look like chump change in about 30 or 40 years. I hope I'm dead by then, seriously. Billions on entitlement programs is liberal mantra folks. (you got hosed!). He fails to protect the border the way it it is mandated by the Constitution. Even democrats agree that his "comprehensive immigration" policy is a good and cooperative way to work together with the other side of the aisle. Let's see, ... Liberal immigration and amnesty policies,... yep,... (you got hosed!).
So now that the new and improved Bolten-led staff realizes the base is taking a vacation from voting in 06', they roll the Gay Wedding discrimination Act or whatever its called. Amazing the cojones. And these are the same people that complain about Democrats rolling out the race card every time THEY are in a pickle. This is not 2004. The marriage ammendment is not going to save Bush's butt this time around. I think you guys are all staying home in 06'. And I dont blame you one bit. In 1996 I voted for Clinton just to pee on the GOP's grave. I've been a libertarian ever since.
I feel sorry for you guys, I really do. You thought you were getting a classic conservative, and you got a War-lovin' President ....a free-spending, illegal immigrant-inviting, ...... Liberal.
Hey Rush, Life must suck for those in Rio Linda.
