Who says George W. Bush has done "nothing" for conservatives?
WhiteHouse.gov; various news sources ^ | 1/27/04

Posted on 01/27/2004 7:03:00 AM PST by Wolfstar

[ED. NOTE: In the last few months, FReeper Southack put together a list of Bush administration achievements over its first three years in office, and tirelessly posted it whenever an opportunity presented itself. Southack gave me permission to take that list, organize it by topics, and enhance it with further research from whitehouse.gov and other sources. This thread is posted in gratitude to and in honor of Southack.]

Abortion & Traditional Values

  1. Banned Partial Birth Abortion — by far the most significant roll-back of abortion on demand since Roe v. Wade.
  2. Reversed Clinton's move to strike Reagan's anti-abortion Mexico Policy.
  3. By Executive Order (EO), reversed Clinton's policy of not requiring parental consent for abortions under the Medical Privacy Act.

  6. Increased small business incentives to expand and to hire new people.

  11. Signed trade promotion authority.
  12. Reduced and is working to ultimately eliminate the estate tax for family farms and ranches.

Character & Conduct as President

  1. Changed the tone in the White House, restoring HONOR and DIGNITY to the presidency.
  2. Has reintroduced the mention of God and faith into public discourse.
  3. Handled himself with enormous courage, dignity, grace, determination, and leadership in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 hijackings and anthrax attacks. He almost single-handedly held this country together during those searing days:

Education & Employment Training

  1. Signed the No Child Left Behind Act, delivering the most dramatic education reforms in a generation (challenging the soft bigotry of low expectations). The very liberal California Teachers union is currently running radio ads against the accountability provisions of this Act.
  2. Announced "Jobs for the 21st Century," a comprehensive plan to better prepare workers for jobs in the new millennium by strengthening post-secondary education and job training, and by improving high school education.

  7. Killed Clinton's CO2 rules that were choking off all of the electricity surplus to California.
  8. Provided matching grants for state programs that help private landowners protect rare species.

Defense & Foreign Policy

  1. Successfully executed two wars in the aftermath of 9/11/01: Afghanistan and Iraq. 50 million people who had lived under tyrannical regimes now live in freedom.
  2. Saddam Hussein is now in prison. His two murderous sons are dead. All but a handful of the regime's senior members were killed or captured.
  3. Leader by leader and member by member, al Qaida is being hunted down in dozens of countries around the world. Of the senior al Qaida leaders, operational managers, and key facilitators the U.S. Government has been tracking, nearly two-thirds have been taken into custody or killed. The detentions or deaths of senior al Qaida leaders, including Khalid Shaykh Muhammad, the mastermind of 9/11, and Muhammad Atef, Osama bin Laden's second-in-command until his death in late 2001, have been important in the War on Terror.
  4. Disarmed Libya of its chemical, nuclear and biological WMD's without bribes or bloodshed.
  5. Continues to execute the War On Terror, getting worldwide cooperation to track funds/terrorists. Has cut off much of the terrorists' funding, and captured or killed many key leaders of the al Qaeda network.
  6. Initiated a comprehensive review of our military, which was completed just prior to 9/11/01, and which accurately reported that ASYMMETRICAL WARFARE capabilities were critical in the 21st Century.
  7. Killed the old US/Soviet Union ABM Treaty that was preventing the U.S. from deploying our ABM defenses.
  8. Has been one of the strongest, if not THE strongest friend Israel has ever hand in the U.S. presidency.
  9. Part of the coalition for an Israeli/Palestinian "Roadmap to Peace," along with Great Britain, Russia and the EU.
  10. Pushed through THREE raises for our military. Increased military pay by more than $1 billion a year.
  11. Signed the LARGEST nuclear arms reduction in world history with Russia.
  12. Started withdrawing our troops from Bosnia, and has announced withdrawal of our troops from Germany and the Korean DMZ.
  13. Prohibited putting U.S. troops under U.N. command.
  14. Paid back UN dues only in return for reforms and reduction of U.S. share of the costs.
  15. Earmarked at least 20 percent of the Defense procurement budget for next-generation weaponry.
  16. Increased defense research and development spending by at least $20 billion from fiscal 2002 to 2006.
  17. Ordered a comprehensive review of military weapons and strategy.
  18. Ordered a review of overseas deployments.
  19. Ordered renovation of military housing. The military has already upgraded about 10 percent of its inventory and expects to modernize 76,000 additional homes this year.
  20. Is working to tighten restrictions on military-technology exports.
  21. Brought back our EP-3 intel plane and crew from China without any bribes or bloodshed.

Globalization & Internationalism

  1. Challenged the United Nations to live up to their responsibilities and not become another League of Nations (in other words, showed the UN to be completely irrelevant).
  2. Killed U.S. involvement in the International Criminal Court.
  3. Told the United Nations we weren't interested in their plans for gun control (i.e., the International Ban on Small Arms Trafficking Treaty).*
  4. The only President since the founding of the UN to essentially tell that organization it is irrelevant. He said: "The conduct of the Iraqi regime is a threat to the authority of the United Nations, and a threat to peace. Iraq has answered a decade of UN demands with a decade of defiance. All the world now faces a test, and the United Nations a difficult and defining moment. Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or cast aside without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its founding, or will it be irrelevant?" We all know the outcome and the answer.
  5. Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country."

Government Reform

  1. Improved government efficiency by putting hundreds of thousands of jobs put up for bid. This weakens public-sector unions and cuts undeserved pay raises.
  2. Initiated review of all federal agencies with the goal of eliminating federal jobs (completed September 2003) in an effort to reduce the size of the federal government while increasing private sector jobs.
  3. Led the most extensive reorganization the Federal bureaucracy in over 50 years: After 9/11, condensed 20+ overlapping agencies and their intelligence sectors into one agency, the Department of Homeland Security.*
  4. Ordered each agency to draft a five-year plan to restructure itself, with fewer managers.
  5. Converted federal service contracts to performance-based contracts wherever possible so that the contractor has measurable performance goals.

Health

  1. Strengthen the National Health Service Corps to put more physicians in the neediest areas, and make its scholarship funds tax-free.
  2. Double the research budget of the National Institutes of Health.
  3. Signed Medicare Reform, which includes:

Homeland Security, Border Enforcement & Immigration

  1. *See Government Reform above. Under President Bush's leadership, America has made an unprecedented commitment to homeland security.
  2. Has CONSTRUCTION in process on the first 10 ABM silos in Alaska so that America will have a defense against North Korean nukes. Has ordered national and theater ballistic missile defenses to be deployed by 2004.
  3. Announced a 9.7% increase in government-wide homeland security funding in his FY 2005 budget, nearly tripling the FY 2001 levels (excluding the Department of Defense and Project BioShield).
  4. Before DHS was created, there were inspectors from three different agencies of the Federal Government and Border Patrol officers protecting our borders. Through DHS, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now consolidates all border activities into a single agency to create "one face at the border." This not only better secures the borders of the United States, but it also eliminates many of the inefficiencies that occurred under the old system. With over 18,000 CBP inspectors and 11,000 Border Patrol agents, CBP has 29,000 uniformed officers on our borders.
  5. The Border Patrol is continuing installation of monitoring devices along the borders to detect illegal activity.
  6. Launched Operation Tarmac to investigate businesses and workers in the secure areas of domestic airports and ensure immigration law compliance. Since 9/11, DHS has audited 3,640 businesses, examined 259,037 employee records, arrested 1,030 unauthorized workers, and participated in the criminal indictment of 774 individuals.
  7. Since September 11, 2001, the Coast Guard has conducted more than 124,000 port security patrols, 13,000 air patrols, boarded more than 92,000 vessels, interdicted over 14,000 individuals attempting to enter the United States illegally, and created and maintained more than 90 Maritime Security Zones.
  8. Announced the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), an internet-based system that is improving America's ability to track and monitor foreign students and exchange visitors. Over 870,000 students are registered in SEVIS. Of 285 completed field investigations, 71 aliens were arrested.
  9. This week, the US-VISIT program began to digitally collect biometric identifiers to record the entry and exit of aliens who travel into the U.S on a visa. Together with the standard information, this new program will confirm compliance with visa and immigration policies.
  10. Eliminated INS bureaucratic redundancies and lack of accountability.
  11. Split the Immigration and Naturalization Service into two agencies: one to protect the border and interior, the other to deal with naturalization.
  12. Signed the workplace verification bill to prevent hiring of illegal aliens.
  13. Established a six-month deadline for processing immigration applications.
  14. Information regarding nearly 100% of all containerized cargo is carefully screened by DHS before it arrives in the United States. Higher risk shipments are physically inspected for terrorist weapons and contraband prior to being released from the port of entry. Advanced technologies are being deployed to identify warning signs of chemical, biological, or radiological attacks. Since September 11, 2001, hundreds of thousands of first responders across America have been trained to recognize and respond to the effects of a WMD attack.

Judiciary & Tort Reform

  1. Is urging federal liability reform to eliminate frivolous lawsuits.
  2. Killed the liberal ABA's unconstitutional role in vetting federal judges. The Senate is supposed to advise and consent, not the ABA.
  3. Is nominating strong, conservative judges to the judiciary.
  4. Supports class action reform bill which limits lawyer fees so that more settlement money goes to victims.

Politics

  1. His leadership resulted in Republican gains in the House and Senate, solidifying Republican control of both houses of Congress and the presidency.
  2. Signed an EO enforcing the Supreme Court's Beck decision regarding union dues being used for political campaigns against individual's wishes.

Second Amendment

  1. Ordered Attorney General Ashcroft to formally notify the Supreme Court that the OFFICIAL U.S. government position on the 2nd Amendment is that it supports INDIVIDUAL rights to own firearms, and is NOT a Leftist-imagined "collective" right.
  2. Signed TWO bills into law that arm our pilots with handguns in the cockpit.
  3. Currently pushing for full immunity from lawsuits for our national gun manufacturers.
  4. *See Globalization & Internationalism.

Traditional Values, Compassion & Volunteerism

  1. Endorses and promotes "The Responsibility Era." President Bush often speaks of the necessity of personal responsibility and civic volunteerism. He said, "In a compassionate society, people respect one another and take responsibility for the decisions they make in life. My hope is to change the culture from one that has said, if it feels good, do it; if you've got a problem, blame somebody else — to one in which every single American understands that he or she is responsible for the decisions that you make; you're responsible for loving your children with all your heart and all your soul; you're responsible for being involved with the quality of the education of your children; you're responsible for making sure the community in which you live is safe; you're responsible for loving your neighbor, just like you would like to be loved yourself."
  2. Started the USA Freedom Corps, the most comprehensive clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities ever offered. For the first time in history, Americans can enter geographic information about where they want to get involved, such as state or zip code, as well as areas of interest ranging from education to the environment, and they can access volunteer opportunities offered by more than 50,000 organizations across the country and around the world.
  3. Established the The White House Office and the Centers for the Faith-Based and Community Initiative — located in seven Federal agencies. The faith-based initiative supports the essential work of these important organizations. The goal is to make sure that grassroots leaders can compete on an equal footing for federal dollars, receive greater private support, and face fewer bureaucratic barriers. Work focuses on at-risk youth, ex-offenders, the homeless and hungry, substance abusers, those with HIV/AIDS, and welfare-to-work families.
  4. The White House released a guidebook fully describing the Administration's belief that faith-based groups have a Constitutionally-protected right to maintain their religious identity through hiring — even when Federal funds are involved.
  5. Issued an EO implementing the Supreme Court's Olmstead ruling, which requires moving disabled people from institutions to community-based facilities when possible.
  6. Increased funding for low-interest loan programs to help people with disabilities purchase devices to assist them.
  7. Revised the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 8 rent subsidies to disabled people, permitting them to use up to a year's worth of vouchers to finance down payments on homes. HUD has started pilot programs in 11 states.
  8. Committed US funds to purchase medicine for millions of men, women and children now suffering with AIDS in Africa.
  9. Heeding the words of our own Declaration of Independence, the president laid out the non-negotiable demands of human dignity for all people everywhere. On January 29, 2002, he said, "No nation owns these aspirations, and no nation is exempt from them. We have no intention of imposing our culture. But America will always stand firm for the non-negotiable demands of human dignity." As stated by the President, they are a virtual manifesto of conservative principles:

Thanks for posting this. I’ve been putting some thoughts down on paper, saving them for just such a discussion thread.

My conservative convictions go back to high school when Ronald Reagan was elected Governor of California in 1966, to my subsequent regular reading of “National Review,” and weekly viewing of William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line.” I voted for Reagan in the 1976 primary against Pres. Ford; voted for Reagan again in 1980; briefly supported Phil Crane in 1984 when I thought Reagan wasn’t “conservative enough;” voted for Bob Dole in the 1988 primary over George H.W. Bush because I didn’t believe that simply being Vice President earned one the nomination; voted for Pat Buchanan in the primary in 1992; voted for Steve Forbes in 1996, even though he’d already pulled out of the race. I believe my conservative credentials stand up to anyone’s. I enthusiastically supported George W. Bush in 2000; and I enthusiastically support him again this year. There are good reasons for conservatives to support Pres. Bush in 2004.

History has shown that if a President achieves one or two major objectives, history will recognize him as an effective and possibly a great President. Ronald Reagan had two major accomplishments: he reduced taxes which stimulated the longest period of economic growth in America’s history, and he won the Cold War against the Soviet Union. For these accomplishments, Reagan has earned the legacy as a great President.

George W. Bush is building a legacy based upon five key issues, all of which should be supported by conservatives.

1) His prosecution of the war on terror. The hallmark of the left is that they believe America is essentially at fault for the attacks of 9/11. Whenever something bad happens in the world or here at home, the left blames the US. It’s a reflexive reaction – “Blame America first!” (And they wonder why we question their patriotism.) Look at the leftists in Congress, the media, and in the general public. It would have been easy for this nation to roll over after 9/11 into a fetal position and question ourselves in a stupor of self-doubt and guilt. The fact we didn't is due solely to George W. Bush. I respect this man above all others on the political scene for his leadership and courage immediately after and subsequent to 9/11/01. Pres. Bush called the war on terror a war against the “evildoers.” “Evil” is not a word in the liberal’s vocabulary. Pres. Bush has shown courage, determination, and moral clarity – all conservative values – in pursuing the terrorists.

2) His defense of American sovereignty. Whenever we hear John F-in’ Kerry complaining that President Bush has pursued a foreign policy of “arrogance” and non-cooperation with our “allies,” this is code for “He didn’t ask France’s permission.” Pres. Bush said during his State of the Union address that America will not ask permission from the international community to protect America’s security. He has faced-down the appeasers in the UN in a way that no one, not even Ronald Reagan, was able to do. He told the UN that it needed to enforce its own resolutions, or “become irrelevant,” and if the UN refused to back-up it’s own resolutions, the US would do it on our own. He has been unafraid to go-it-alone when the vital interests of the United States were at stake, but fortunately he has not needed to, putting together a diverse coalition to topple Saddam and rebuild Iraq, encouraging the emergence of a “New Europe,” based on nations which were formally under the heel of Soviet oppression – nations, unlike the tired and morally ambivalent society of France, that know oppression and which are now strong defenders of freedom.

3) His promotion of freedom and democracy as the cornerstone of US foreign policy. As President Bush said in his speech to the National Endowment for Democracy this past November, “The progress of liberty is a powerful trend. Yet, we also know that liberty, if not defended, can be lost. The success of freedom is not determined by some dialectic of history. By definition, the success of freedom rests upon the choices and the courage of free peoples, and upon their willingness to sacrifice…” And as he said at Whitehall Palace in London a week later, “The deepest beliefs of our nations set the direction of our foreign policy. We value our own civil rights, so we stand for the human rights of others. We affirm the God-given dignity of every person, so we are moved to action by poverty and oppression and famine and disease. The United States and Great Britain share a mission in the world beyond the balance of power or the simple pursuit of interest. We seek the advance of freedom and the peace that freedom brings.” His elevation of freedom and democracy as the guiding principles of our foreign policy was a radical break with the utilitarian policy of the past 50 years where we compromised those principles in the interest of counter-balancing Soviet communism worldwide. This part of the “Bush Doctrine” is decidedly conservative.

4) His promotion of quality nominees to the federal judiciary who respect the original intent of the Constitution. For me, the most important issue we face (outside of winning the war on terror) is to reform the federal judiciary by packing...yes, PACKING!...it with judges who respect the rule of law, and the U.S. Constitution. So far, every indication I've seen from George W. Bush's nominees to the federal courts is that they have been 100% stellar in their conservative judicial philosophies. This factor alone is reason enough for bedrock conservatives to support the re-election of George W. Bush.

5) His effort to bring faith back into the mainstream of American society (the most important cultural issue, IMO). All conservatives understand that we are in a “culture war” with the left, and that this war has been going on for some time – for the better part of a generation. But it isn’t so much a culture war as it is a spiritual war – and, frankly, I believe that the wider spiritual war going on in our society has allied some on both the left and the right against the influence of faith in God in our society. To wage spiritual warfare requires using the weapons of faith – the recognition that there is a power above and outside of ourselves to whom we all owe allegiance. President Bush is probably the most sincere and public believer in God we’ve had in the White House. We live in dark days, and simple ideology will not get us through them. The light of honest and real faith in God, bringing God back as a foundational value of our society, will, more than any political philosophy, dispel the darkness. This is an important aspect of what President Bush brings to the Presidency. And it, along with the other items I’ve listed, are all solidly conservative in value, and demand that real conservatives support President Bush for re-election.

So much for calling you a "RINO" like I have seen on this forum. I want to share with you an email that I received this morning from a very good friend of mine who wrote Fox News about their political coverage of malcontents among conservatives:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,109552,00.html

This is the small, noisy extremist fringe, a corrolary to
the Kucinich folks in the Democrat Party.

To pretend that these folks represent anything unusual is
for FoxNews to be used by their spinmeisters to manufacture
a story that benefits their fundraising and that feeds the
Democrat hate-machine.

These are the folks who supported Pat Buchanan's ranting
attacks on former President Bush and the GOP, and of ex-NH
US Senator Bob Smith's self-righteous departure from the
GOP and his Quioxic run for the Presidency.

Most of these grumbling-campaigns are sponsored and fed
by a Buchanan, Perot, or Smith whose ego compells them to
seek power no matter the cost to the GOP, the nation, or
the truth.

How about more attention to the flood of hate ads from
George Soros and his ethically-challenged cohorts on the
left. The Nazi-like propaganda method "tell a lie long
enough and loud enough and eventually people will believe
it" is too obvious to be ignored.

Why is it that the rich manipulators on the Democrat side
get a pass while anyone who gives more than a few hundred
dollars to the GOP is labeled an illegitimate interloper
and an evil special interest?

A little balance and more completely researched reporting,
please?

Excellent list by Wolfstar and Southack.

Thanks for th eping, PhiKapMom. Now, if they could just reverse the ephedra ban and remove the AUC from the State Department list of terrorist organizations, I can give the Administration a solid A as opposed to an A-/B+.

I'm getting so tired of the "what have you done for me lately" stuff and the "but you haven't done everything exactly as I wanted it done" crowd. Yes, there are many things I disagree with - and, no- there is no doubt in my mind that i feel GW is the best man in this job at this time. God help us all if Gore had won - God help us all if these spineless gutless appeasers that are running against him have any chance at all at the job.

Great email. Sadly, here on FR the naysayers are represented way beyond their true proportions.

Under his Judiciary accomplishments, I love the fact G.W. has gone ahead with the recess appointment of Judge Charles Pickering. Awesome move!

The Demobstructionists are foiled again...and America is a better, saner place thanks to our President :)

Ummmm...there are some 107 points, not just one. As explained, the core list originated with another FReeper from news material readily available to anyone who wanted to take the time to research it. I used www.whitehouse.gov and several newspaper websites to add more info.

Back for another try?

Nice formatting and organization though. I suspect we wore this topic out the other day. Did we ever make it to 2000 posts? (I stopped paying attention about a dozen posts short of 2000.)

Previous thread: So you think George W. Bush is not a conservative?

Wolfstar, the time and effort you have put into this masterpiece is not lost on me. It's excellent. I've not read anything more thorough or impressive.

God bless you and President Bush. He must be re-elected.

Judge Pickering - a fine man who recieved strong support from President Bush.

A conservative judge from a conservative president!

He might be referring to your comment, "None so blind as those who REFUSE to see."

The original "talking point" was from Jesus. It's appropriate here as the blindness we seem to encounter on these threads is, in my opinion, truly a spiritual one. How else to explain, not the opposition to GWB, but the unbridles hatred.

A conservative judge from a conservative president!

Yes! And I can hardly wait to see who he nominates to the SCOTUS when that opportunity arises. That's where the most lasting impact of the Bush White House will be.

Considering that the Bush administration has been in office just three short years — and that they had the devastating 9/11/01 attacks and anthrax attacks occur just 7 1/2 months after the inauguration (thanks to the foreign policy negligence of Bill Clinton) — I think the Bush record is nothing short of wonderful.

Thank you both for your excellent work! And thanks to Southack for the original list!

I am going to direct people to this thread, and I am bookmarking it for reference in the months ahead. As President Bush says, "Good job!"

Southack compiled these sources earlier and from what I am reading, Wolfstar has now taken that informationn for this thread.

We have been reading so many negatives about President Bush and how he is not a conservative that this post is way past due if you ask me.

Cannot believe what I read over the weekend of some of the lies and half truths by some Freepers against the President not to mention namecalling. It didn't stop all weekend long with negative thread after negative thread. Now we have the media saying this loud group represents Conservatives. That is Bravo Sierra IMO -- I am a Conservative and they certainly do not represent me.

It was a pleasure to log on this morning to the computer and actually read something positive about the President.

Imagine how horrible it would be to have Kerry, Dean, or Edwards making the Supreme Court nominations...

It would take 50 years for America to recover.

Ordered Attorney General Ashcroft to formally notify the Supreme Court that the OFFICIAL U.S. government position on the 2nd Amendment is that it supports INDIVIDUAL rights to own firearms, and is NOT a Leftist-imagined "collective" right.

Speaks Volumes!!

Signed the workplace verification bill to prevent hiring of illegal aliens.

And this too. For those who criticize the Presidents stand on illegal aliens.

Over the weekend all we saw were negative posts and how Pres Bush was not a conservative. Guess a lot of the anti-Bush crowd missed the link you just put up -- thanks for posting that link.

Yes, awesome. It isn't widely known, but the President also issued an EO instructing the administration agencies with jurisdiction to do everything possible to expedite judicial nominations (selection process, background checks, etc.).
