    Republicans are very opposed to this out of THEIR control spending.
    They had few complaints when it was in their control though.

    How about stating that conservatives are against out of control spending above revenues, and out of control spending that is not charged to the government in the actual words of our constitution...

    And conservatives did in fact have a lot of complaints on Bush's spending habits... though you choose to ignore that fact because it does not fit with your pre-made argument

    Many in the REP party do not hold to conservative standards and values... the true conservative message has been pushed aside by many of the REPs.. and they need to be voted out just as the left-wing liberals need to be voted out... congress under Bush was not and did not stay on the conservative path

    After 2004 some slight critisism of Bush was allowed because he could not run again. This accelerated in 2006 as Republicans tried to distance themselves from Bush so it would not hurt their re-election efforts and they could claim to be mavericky.

    The "True conservative" Is a joke.

    There is no such thing only cons who pretend they care about being "fiscal" to get elected.

    If you truely cared about being fiscal you would vote for the people who are best at it historically , YOU WOULD VOTE DEM

    There were a few lone voices with an 'R' at the end of their name who were opposed to out-of-control spending when they had a majority in Congress, but not too many. That's why most Republicans shouldn't be taken seriously and the GOP is in serious need of restructuring (or death). We already know that most Democrats in office today will push through wasteful and destructive Keynesian policies, but we can't count on the GOP to stop them.
