Another Conservative Voice

Here's Christopher Buckley-- you know, the son of William F. Buckley; former speechwriter for George H. W. Bush.

Who knew, in 2000, that “compassionate conservatism” meant bigger government, unrestricted government spending, government intrusion in personal matters, government ineptitude, and cronyism in disaster relief? Who knew, in 2000, that the only bill the president would veto, six years later, would be one on funding stem-cell research? A more accurate term for Mr. Bush’s political philosophy might be incontinent conservatism.

And this one has some additional Republican voices saying the same thing, the possibly the only way to save the Republican party is to lose power in the upcoming election:

"The Big Government Republicans in Washington do not merit the support of conservatives. They have busted the federal budget for generations to come with the prescription-drug benefit and the creation and expansion of other programs. They have brought forth a limitless flow of pork for the sole, immoral purpose of holding onto office."

Why do you care what Republicans say? They're all liars, and if you thought that they once cared about "limited government" and "fiscal resonsibility", then you just weren't paying attention-- Republicans have always increased the size of government and busted the budget every time they grab control.
