    Throwing this out for comment. My take, since 9/11, contrary to his desires or 2000 campaign speeches, this administration needs to focus on WOT. The economy must be watched, but to divert needed attention to domestic programs that may have been at the forefront prior to 9/11, no. Can't afford both.

    good article. one has to wonder how so many GOP faithful have joined along for the ride and abandoned their conservative values.

    Power corrupts.

    most democrats knew clinton was a dirtbag and that he was destroying the party while building his personal stature and power for 8 years, but they went along for the ride anyway.

    Conservatism as far as congressional Repubs are concerned went down the shitter with the Schiavo deal.

    Nah, it was long gone before then....

    Think Pill Bill....

    Think funding education at a Federal Level....

    Think actually increasing the money to the NEA....

    There are more, but heck why bother.

    This is why, at least for economic issues, the Club for Growth is such a great organization.

    Look at it this way: Bushco is the only pig at the trough which will actually fight terrorism BEFORE it's too late.

    And that is the best we got? Scary. NCLB and SS is taking precedence over WOT? Fights over Schiavo?
