    IS Bush Conservative? About as much as Guiliani is. Not as much as i'd like him to be. He is conservative on Defense. He believes in a big military and defending the country. When it comes to the money though, he might as well be Clinton. The money is flowing out of Washington these days would make Jimmy Carter look fiscally responsible.

    I doubt he'll change anytime soon, but he has been good enough on the defense that his glaring defeciencies in finance are ALMOST passable. Anymore money comes flying out in the form of a medicare bill or something and all bets are off.

    Oh yeah, he's done a great job "defending" our country. Doesn't anyone remember the "Bin Laden determined to attack in the US" brief we learned about from the 9/11 commission? Instead of reading the brief, Bush was on vacation at his dude ranch. What a great defender! Not! :lame2:

    George Bush is a flat-out socialist. Oh, he may not be the type of socialist that today's self-described socialists like. But remember, there's more than one wing of socialism.

    If democrats had any bit of sense, they would hammer home the point that taxes are not the only way the government can extract money from the private economy. Borrowing isn't just a tax on future generations, it also soaks up private sector funds that could have been used for non-government spending. Soak up enough money from investors, and the interest rates start going up...which brings us to method #3--lean on the Federal Reserve and start cranking up the printing press! The ONLY thing that matters is: what percentage of the GNP is government spending. Any other talk is just a smokescreen.

    Of course, the democrats can't do that because they were never afraid to use borrowing and inflation either. I'm afraid the only way the government will ever stop spending is when they default on their loans and their credit rating drops to zero.

    If you really can't comprehend the point of what I said then I have trouble believing that you can even walk and chew gum at the same time. :confused:

    This president hasn't done anything right during his presidency. Any attempt to candy coat this sinking ship is wishful thinking. Bush is less popular right now than Nixon was during Watergate.

    Hm, I've been thinking of Bush more like a liberal and Hillary as a socialist.

    However, if Bush is a "flat-out socialist", then Hillary must be a flat-out communist.
