Bush: I Abandoned Free Market to Save the Free Market

George W. Bush is our biggest-spending president ever... he makes Lyndon Johnson look like a piker, and the liberals should love him for that. In my view, Bush deserves credit for preventing another 9/11 and for putting Roberts and Alito on the Supreme Court. And the fight to save Terry Schiavo's life was well worth the effort. Otherwise, his presidency has been a tremendous net minus for conservatism and the Republican Party.

The sad part is that Ronald Reagan is indirectly responsible for both Bush presidencies, since he made George H. W. Bush his vice president in 1980 (I just recently learned that Nevada senator Paul Laxalt, Reagan's close friend, was very upset over the Bush selection). ~~ SR


From The Northern Virginia Conservative:

Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. THIS is his excuse for bailout madness.

Really, George? Really? REALLY?

He's the worst president since LBJ. Yes, worse than Nixon or even Carter. This man cannot be gone soon enough. He had a united Republican government, with a chance in 2002 to end things like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Energy, Commerce, HUD, HHS, Education, Labor, and any other number of unconstitutional expansions of the federal government. He made an abortive attempt to reform Social Security. Beyond that, he dragged us into an unnecessary war in Iraq, spent money like a Democrat, exploded the deficit, devalued the currency, and is now giving out money like candy to his corporate friends, courtesy of Hank Paulson and his robber baron friends from Goldman Sachs. If he'd given half the effort to fiscal conservatism that he did to that Schiavo nonsense, he might at least have been decent.

As it stands, he has been an unmitigated disaster for conservatism, and for America. Thanks for nothing, Jorge. At least we stopped your immigration amnesty. I bet your corporate friends are still pissed at that.
