President Bush, who inherited a balanced budget, spent like a drunken sailor for eight years, and here we are. The amount of American debt that the international community has bought is directly related to the amount we had to borrow to pay for President Bush's profligate spending. Now our entire country is indebted to, and dependent on, foreign money to stay afloat. Since when is that conservative?
George Bush's breed of Republican is interested in power for power's sake. The ideology they chant is only meant to gather support for what they want to do.
Certainly no one can say that President Bush's philosophy of less government, and getting government out of the lives of people, has any relationship to his actions.
George Bush likes to blame other people for his problems. Who is getting the blame this time? Is it going to be another "Clinton recession"? That is what President Bush called the recession of 2001. I'm just waiting for the conservative media machine to revisit the phrase.
