So as I usually do, I am reading the internet this morning and I come across Rich Lowery at National Review Online bemoaning the “un=Compassionate” Conservatism and how George W Bush would not be elected today. You are damn right Mr. Lowery, because George W Bush spent this Country into debt and then turned over this Country to a Socialist who used the spending of the Bush Administration to say “well he did it, how can you tell me I cannot” and of course he was RIGHT. If you sir and your big government, big business and big science liberal Republicans and yes sir you are indeed LIBERAL Republicans cannot see the damage that type of thinking has on this Country and the policies that are created therein you are deluding yourself to think we shall ever get out of 14 TRILLION dollars in debt.
It Is Not The Government’s Job To Pick Winners And Losers And It Damages The USA When They Do So
The Republican noncandidate flavor of the week is Texas governor Rick Perry. If you squint just right, you could mistake him at a podium for his predecessor, George W. Bush. Except for his message.
There might be no more powerful symbol of the death of compassionate conservatism in the Republican party than Bushâ€™s successor and former running mate in Texas stomping all over it with cowboy boots emblazoned with the words â€œFreedomâ€ and â€œLiberty.â€
Bush rose from Texas to the national stage in 1999 talking of his federal education agenda, the courage of single mothers, the power of drug and alcohol recovery programs, and the need for government to forge partnerships with faith organizations. Perry is emerging from Texas talking of the 10th Amendment, cutting government, defending freedom â€” and defending freedom some more.
There could have been no more slippery language in the ole USA, then Republicans, Rockefeller Republicans, LIBERAL Republicans, Joe Scarborough Republicans, Mitt Romney Republicans, then the language of “Compassionate Conservatism”. There is nothing compassionate about the millions upon millions of Americans who have lost their jobs and their homes and are poor because of the “compassion” of Bush and Bernake and their TARP to bail out huge BANKERS, and then the same when Obama bailed out UNIONS and lefty States, while Americans who worked their entire lives end up with nothing. You call that compassion? I call that EVIL!
