Quin, I’m glad to hear that Fred Barnes has come around on spending cuts. His current argument seems slightly at odds with his piece on big government conservatism from a few years ago: “[Bush] understands why Reagan failed to reduce the size of the federal government and why Newt Gingrich and the GOP revolutionaries failed as well. The reason: People like big government so long as it’s not a huge drag on the economy.”
