- TSA
- More WOD
- More WOT
- More Federal expansion (such as trying to place *all* National Guard directly under the President.)

Since the Reagan tax cuts didn't last for eternity, does that mean he did not good by putting them in place?

Not Dukkakis, Not Gore, Not Kerry....
Also, a higher degree of competency.
But a march towards big government socialism, albeit with smaller baby steps rather than with clumsy leaps.

Higher taxes under Bush 41.

Bigger Government under Bush 43.

A new Drug Entitlement under Bush 43.

Big Government Republicanism. That’s what Bushes get us.
