Well, FRiend, you're the one who brought up W and your gold standard 4.7% unemployment meme. I'll give you that W held a much better economy...and economic principals that lead to a much more prosperous economy, than the Marxist-in-Chief.
I do support Ws path to citizenship policies.
Ha! Somehow, I knew that you would! That doesn't surprise me.
By the way, hispanics supported W, as Gov and Pres, at about the same rate they supported Ted Cruz' Senate race. Which proves you CAN stick to CONSERVATIVE principles -- and NOT pander to race (with promises of citizenship, etc.) and garner 40% of the vote. Heck, while Bush was pandering to hispanics, Kerry won 53% to Bush's 44% of the '04 vote.
I don't *hate* Bush, I actually respect W MUCH more than 0. I just don't appreciate pandering to any race while abandoning Conservative principles/platform. To me, that defines *faux* more than anything. So, take your *faux* conservative/0 supporter tripe somewhere else
Why do you suppose W hasn't come out strong, or AT ALL, on the destructive policies of 0 (being approved by Dims AND Repubs)? That alone, has bothered me as much or more, than anything else W has ever done.
I don’t disagree with much of what you say.
I love Ted Cruz and I voted for him twice. I thought he was much better than dew hurst
He would be my number one pick for pres 2016.
I know bush pretty well. He’s extraordinarily humble and people try to spin it as a weakness. It’s not.
His library and institute do good work arguing for his principals.
I’m pretty unhappy with how harshly people like bush are treated. He’s more conservative than McCain and people can certainly vote for more conservative options such as Cruz.
Democrats control too much of history— making heroes of villains and demons of good people. We need to defend the good actions of republicans and stop playing this coy game of bipartisanship that we dislike republicans as much as democrats.
2013 isn’t 2001 or 1980 for that matter. It’s a unique moment.
