Conservatives Break With Bush

A Wall Street Journal editorial asks, "is George W. Bush still President?"

Jack Kelly opens his latest column with the statement, "President Bush has cast a huge, dark cloud over the Republican party."

A recent Peggy Noonan column is subtitled "President Bush has torn the conservative coalition asunder."

Ann Coulter's last column is titled "Bush's America: Roach Motel." In the one before that, she labels Bush "stupid."

In a Weekly Standard editorial, William Kristol writes, "Many of us used to respect President Bush. Can one respect him still?"

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Whether it's illegal immigration, prosecution of the war in Iraq, abandoning friends and allies left and right (Bolton, Wolfowitz, Libby, Pace), constantly caving in to the bullying of the Democrats, backing the type of liberal Republicans (Lincoln Chafee and Arlen Specter) who only serve to undermine the party, not uttering a peep over the outrages of Sandy Berger, bestowing Presidential Medals of Freedom on the undeserving George Tenet and Paul Bremer, the Harriet Miers fiasco, the Dubai Ports World debacle, massive federal spending and expansion, pushing Israel to continue taking part in false "peace processes" while sending arms to Fatah (now in the hands of Hamas), negotiating with Iran as American hostages rot in their prisons, losing the propaganda battle to America's enemies, treating ex-KGB Russian President Putin like a cuddly teddy-bear, or the return to State Department politics-as-usual, the Bush administration has become a big, fat disappointment.

All the more so to those of us who supported the president's bold break with convention in the years directly following 9/11 only to find ourselves back at square one.

The conservative love affair with George W. Bush, to the extent it existed, is most definitely over.

Onto the 2008 presidential election...

Cinnamon, once again you have hit the nail on the head. Earlier (last year) I published on my blog an open letter to the President essentially asking him to grow a spine and show some leadership, he didn't and I don't think he can.

Sad to say, we may pay dearly for his failures to lead, especially since the last election.

You hit the nail on the head..

What a disappointment was/is Bush the Betrayer!

I sorta held my nose and voted for him in '04 and now there are many regrets -- But look at who we had as an alternative!

Keep up your good work and, being in SF as you are, watch your back!

In Christ,

The only thing that seems to energize Bush is erasing the border with Mexico.

Of course he was never a conservative. He's more in tune with the globalist George Soros and it's funny that the left don't see it.
