One of the things that surprises me so far in the race for the White House is that none of the Republicans is positioning himself clearly as the anti-Bush. I think there is a yearning for such a candidate among the Republican electorate.
Here's some evidence. For some time, Strategic Vision, a polling company, has been asking Republican voters if they see George W. Bush as a conservative in the mode of Ronald Reagan. Not only did very few Republicans view Bush that way when the question was first asked last fall, but the number has fallen to the level of rounding error.

Reagan signed a bill which legalized three million illegals. Bush tried to sign one, but failed. Reagan’s bill set the stage for what is happening now. So why is Bush evil while what Reagan did was wonderful?
..I'm not in the mood to argue with you.
Think what you will.
Yes, but I’m interested in what you think. Answer back when you’re feeling in the mood. And again I reiterate I’m as happy as anyone that the current bill was defeated. But unfortunately there are many people on this forum who give Bush no credit for anything positive he’s done. And he has done a lot of positive things. Have a good nights rest.
I want a man who will follow this President when he did the right thing, and diverge from this President when he did the wrong thing.
If I wanted a simpleminded Bushbasher, I’ll vote for Kucinich.
Who is the Anti-Bush?
I don’t know, but I do know that I’m damm sure not voting for Bush in ‘08!
Because Bush is no Conservative, that’s why.
The Republicans continue to “NOT get it”. He’s done far more than make mistakes. People can forgive mistakes. Sheer determined arrogance against the very people who put him in office is quite another matter.
The Republicans can and will put a conservative up for the presidency, or the Republicans will be defeated in 2008
Liberal Democrats and Liberal Republicans are still Liberal.
The party be damned.
I wonder what kind of intellegence it takes to consider Bush a liberal. His appointments to the SCOTUS alone prove that judgement to be in error. He may not be as far right as folks like you, but that wouldn’t even make him middle of the road.
