In 2004, when "W" was running for re-election, there was a terrific, sarcastic bumper sticker that I liked but would no way own or display--I didn't want anyone thinking I was serious.
It said: "Re-elect President Bush. It takes a 8 years to really ruin a country" or some such thing. You get the jist.
We had no idea, at the time, how true and sadly, scarily prophetic that was.
While he's not completely to blame for the economic meltdown the US--and the world--is in, he is responsible for taking apart our constitution, thrusting government more and more into our private lives, getting us into an international war we should never have gotten into and, therefore, seeing to the deaths of more than 4,000 American soldiers, spending more money than any other President or administration in the history of our country, dismantling our environmental laws, ignoring the needs of our own citizens in times of huge natural disasters, politicizing the Justice Department, forcing government into religion--and religion into government--again, in spite of the constitution and much more.
I'll never forget.
But I have to keep asking, just what, exactly, was or is ever "conservative" about this clown?
