Jeffrey Lord’s revisiting the disastrous 1986 Congressional election cycle was a needed reminder of how conservatives are sometimes their own worst enemies. Many of those who now call themselves “Reagan conservatives” and mythologize his record to the detriment of today’s Republicans were his vociferous critics during his second term. In fact, they so weakened him that had it not been for Oliver North it is probable Democrats would have impeached and removed Reagan from office.p>Twenty years later falling for media propaganda and Democrat spin many conservatives are again doing the left’s dirty work for them by undercutting President Bush (a solid Reagan conservative without the eloquence) and Republicans in Congress. In the name of their principles or the “brilliant” political strategy of “throwing away an election” to punish Republicans they surrendered the House and Senate to radical Democrats intent on losing the GWOT, raising taxes on working Americans, increasing earmarks and pork barrel spending and enacting a radical social agenda. Now they threaten to hand the White House over to an incompetent and radical buffoon, because the potential Republican nominees aren’t Reagan. Brilliant! One wonders if these self-described conservatives are actually principled or just obtuse. br> — Michael Tomlinson br> Jacksonville, North Carolina /p> p> Writers who wish to make reference to James Dobson need to take a small amount of time to check his bio. He is not a Reverend or a theologian. He has a PhD in child development from USC and is a licensed psychologist. He worked in pediatrics for 31 years — hence most of his books are on child development. br> — David Shaw /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
