No Child Left Behind, tax collectors on your heels. Expanded entitlements and out-of-control government spending for 6 years with not a single veto threat. IRS on your heels.
Harriet Miers. Only due to open conservative defiance of the President do we now enjoy Roberts and Alito as Supreme Court justices.p>In summary, conservatives initially supported President Bush with enthusiasm because he said and did some of the things we like (tax cuts, taking out Saddam, killing terrorists, etc.). Six years later, the President’s record speaks for itself and, on balance, it is a decidedly mixed bag. Conservative principles have not changed. Turns out President Bush is not conservative. I cannot understand why Mr. Homnick has difficulty understanding why conservatives are not happy. In politics, if you don’t deliver what you promise or suggest, then voter support wanes. President Bush has failed to deliver. His problem, not mine.

Fair weather friends indeed. Politicians out to save their own necks with no regard for loyalty to their boss. If the dems have their way…I guess he will be doing the “perp walk” next. If I were him I would be glad to be out of DC at the end of the term since it’s the most backstabbing place on the planet.

Sherrill br> Tennessee /p> p> Ah yes, why rely on the empty wind of politicians’ sound bites when we can do quite all right with the empty wind of Christopher Orlet. It’s nice that you like Mr. Tribe’s individual rights position when it fits so neatly with your political view, but you might want to consider how that wind might blow on some of your other issues. You would do well to read the work of Robert Bork, who does not agree with Tribe’s interpretation, before you do cartwheels … br> — Jason Davis
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
