The liberalization of George W. Bush is sweeping in nature. It appears that he has bought into the idea that humans are contributing significantly to the so-called global warming problem.
Read what our “conservative” President is considering:
President Bush is poised to change course and announce as early as this week that he wants Congress to pass a bill to combat global warming, and will lay out principles for what that should include.
“This is an attempt to move the administration and the party closer to the center on global warming. With these steps, it is hoped that the debate over this is over, and it is time to do something,” said an administration source close to the White House who is familiar with the planning and who said to expect an announcement this week.
This is an attempt to move Bush’s global warming policy towards the “center?” There’s no such thing. Let’s call it what it is: Bush has apparently bought into Al Gore’s fraud and has moved, not to the “center,” but to the left on this and many other issues.
Now it looks like the proposal has not been finalized but there’s talk that may it include the spectacularly useless carbon credits program. You know, that program that allows so-called “green” companies who have a surplus in carbon credits to sell them to companies who need them.
It’s unbelievable. It’s like every issue that comes about is another opportunity to for George W. Bush to stick it to the conservative movement.
I’m sure we just lost of half of our readers with that statement, but it’s true.
Let’s take the issues of the day and where Bush stands on them:
- immigration: he’s for amnesty and essentially wide-open borders
- spending: he’s spent more than Bill Clinton, and yes you Bush apologists, that’s excluding spending on the War and defense measures
- global warming: it looks like he’s moved to the Left on this issue as well
Yet we continue to be told that Bush may not be a conservative leader, but that he is a conservative.
Can anyone who can look at things objectively and not through the rose-colored, blindly optimistic glasses of the Republican Party tell me that they think Bush is a conservative?
I take no pleasure in saying this, but with each passing day and news story I truly believe that in 5-10 years we will look back and say that George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Ken Mehlman, and Mel Martinez destroyed the Republican Party by eternally alienating the conservative base the Party was built upon.
