Our only consolation is this -- the alternatives were worse.
The choices are pathetic. Bad or worse. This country needs A REAL CONSERVATIVE in the Oval Office. Washington is clearly out of control. Only a Reagan conservative, with a Congressional majority can fix it. It is not being fixed now, because Bush is not a conservative and he is not a fighter.
"This country needs A REAL CONSERVATIVE in the Oval Office."
Perhaps so. Name one with a prayer of being elected in the USA of today.
You think that there is a magic bullet that can change this in 4-5 years.
The way the govt was designed insures that change happens slowly.
It will take 25 years just to change the face of the judiciary and the civil service.
I, too voted for Bush both times because there was NO alternative, but he is no more and no less than what I expected he would be, not anymore conservative than his dad, but a far better politician. I don't think Bush I cared enough to pretend to fool the peasants by the time he had been president for 4 yrs. Bush II cared enough to do what he needed to do to be re-elected, but certainly not enough to be concerned with what the conservative base thinks of him now. I didn't vote in either primary for Bush because he was the nominee long before PA voted, but of the lousy choices we started with, Bush would not have been my pick.
