Bill Clinton: New-look GOP makes Bush look liberal

Here's one major difference between Leftists and Conservatives:

Leftists and Liberals and Demorats won't "own it."

Conservatives will.

Yahoo News via the AP recently featured an article entitled "Bill Clinton: New-look GOP makes Bush look liberal."

Clinton, speaking at a Democratic fundraiser in Minneapolis, said there was no mistaking that Republicans have tacked hard right and questioned whether former President George W. Bush would fit in among the party's candidates this year.

"A lot of their candidates today, they make him look like a liberal," Clinton told an enthusiastic crowd at a downtown hotel as he campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton.

Clinton pointed to the tea party movement's influence on the GOP.

"The Boston Tea Party was protesting abuse of power. This is now trading public power for the abuse of private power," Clinton said, just as a tea party-backed candidate was declared the winner Tuesday night in Delaware's hotly contested Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

In response, I say this: Yes. I will Own It.

Because I concur:

Former President Bush was, in many ways, too liberal for myself and other Conservatives. Just off the top of my head, he was too much the Globalist, way too much the Spender, too much the Illegal Immigrant Embracer, pissed away billions of hard-earned American taxpayer dollars on AIDS in Africa (when those dollars went solely into the pockets of black tinpot dictators), and actually considered turning our ports over to foreign entities.

That said, I'd amend Mr Clinton's allegation by writing this:

It's not the Republican Party that's embracing "ideology over evidence." It's Conservatives that are doing so, and the GOP is not liking this one bit. My donations to the RNC are over, and have been moribund for over two years. There are too many Demorats in the party posting the letter (R) after their names.

I send money, now, directly to those Conservative candidates I personally support. I delete the "middle man." Michael Steele's antics and those of the RNC taught me well. I recently donated four-figure checks to three upcoming Conservative candidates. I eliminated the GOP completely.

Yes, the RNC and Michael Steele taught me well.

Moreover, those RINOs with the (R) after their names taught me well.

Conservatives: SHOW UP in November and POUND THE POLLS with your votes AGAINST Demorats. SHATTER the grip the Demorats have over the House and Senate.

Mr Obama? You are NEXT, sir.

Let me add another point, if I might:

One of the WORST things that Bush did was create another series of levels of bureaucracy following 9/11.

There was NO need for Homeland Security, there was NO need for TSA, there was NO need for ANY MORE bureaucracy.

He should simply have unleashed the Dogs of War he currently possessed.

BIG mistake, Mr Bush.

BIG mistake.

Can I get an "AMEN"... The old guard needs to fade away... Karl Rove pissed me off so much in his response to Christine O'Donnell, I'll never give the RNC a dime... It's tough in these economic times, but I have a small amount of money taken out of my checking account each month that goes directly to Marco Rubio... Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy are the "Young Guns" and the future of the GOP...

If the GOP doesn't wake up to the new reality, the grassroots uprising of the true conservative, they will be left behind.

It's about time.

Years ago, while on the phone with a GOP fundraiser, he mistakenly said something about it not being a time to leave the party. I politely told him that I wasn't leaving the party; the party had left me. Needless to say, they got no money then and haven't since.

BZ, while I am sure you are aware I am on the other side politically, I think you are onto something here that our political parties are missing.

The electorate is much less enamored of a central political party than we have ever been.

Your comments as to supporting candidates over party supports that view and IMHO, there are many like you in both parties.

Now don't take this as a personal knock, but I have a question.

Why, when President Bush, and the GOP, were in the middle of this behavior, did we not hear loud conservative voices raising these issues?

Certainly, from what we are now hearing, those people, like your self existed.

I think the relative silence from what people are calling "true conservatives" during the Bush Admin has hampered the credibility of those voices now.

It seems a little disingenuous to be willing to openly critical now, when in the moment, people were quiet.

I am just trying to get a handle on that.

Also, if you remember, I'm from Nevada. It looks like it is neck and neck between Harry and Sharon Angle.

He had caught her, and passed here, but now it is dead heat.

Perhaps the non debate debate will tell the tale.

The political folks here are hammering Angle pretty hard for not sitting down for some one on one interviews with the Vegas media...

BZ you are so right, that is what I thought when he first formed those groups. I wondered who'd get their grubby hands on it after he left office, & the hands were even grubbier than I feared.

If I may, I'd like to respond to Dave Miller-

I think your comments lead to the reason you are seeing a near-revolt among conservatives, Dave.
In GWB we had a choice between "Bad" and "Terrible" in both the '00 and '04 elections...
John Kerry? {Ptui! I'll piss like a racehorse on his grave one day!}

We watched helplessly as GWB governed as "Democrat Lite", and realized we had to take a different course.
The T.E.A. Party provided the outlet to express our outrage.
I HOPE we don't end up with a third-party as that alternative, but if the R's don't get their heads out of where its dark and smelly, they'll see voters turn their backs on them in huge numbers.
(I bet we'll see serious backpedaling on their part over the next month.)
Armey and Gingrich had seen the light. Will Rove?

Graybeard, that's my point though...

Even after the 2004 election, conservatives were absent in their criticism, and honestly, were still defending his actions, up until the Bush Admin proposed the TARP bailout.

SInce he was already in office, why was there so little criticism, no one was going to unelect him.

I think there was so damn much criticism coming at him via the media and the left, we all were exhausted by it.
I'm sure you noticed.

Dave: disagreement is good; thanks for being civil in discourse. Unfortunately, many are not.

In any bureaucracy there are two sorts of people:

1) the people actually wanting to do the job of the bureaucracy,

2) those wanting to build their own bureaucratic empires and ignore their agency's mission.

The second always win.

Politicians favor empire building.

Thus bureaucracies are built up to keep them in the sway of the politicians.

D and R both do this.

That is why government now needs more than a manicure, but a chainsaw taken to it as every 'reform' has made it grow and turn into something worse than it was before.
