Ayn Rand had a wored for the Republican party back in the old days. She described it as the “me too” party. As in, whenever the Democrats proposed another welfare program or subsidy the Republicans would respond that we want that too, just more incrementally. Looks like they’ve returned to their roots. I think Rush nailed it yeaterday when he compared the Republican future to a AAA or AA farm club compared to the major league Dem party.
yep ... and Bush should get much of the blame ... creating another expensive entitlement program (Medicare Rx) to go along with the other programs that will drain on the economy when the bulk of baby boomers are collecting, trying to push amnesty for illegal aliens, runwaway spending, getting the fed govt. more involved in education, campgain finance reform that has strengthen the power of incumbents and special interest groupos, and not pushing to produce more of our own energy (Bush folded and gave up on that ... just like entitlement reform) ... all to appease democrats ... look what we got ... a govt. that has spent like democrats (even though the republicans could have stopped it/fought it)
Bush turned out to be more Country Club Blue Blood Republican than Conservative Republican. And now our candidates left in 2008 appear to be more RINO than Bush (if we thought possible).
