The election was a repudiation of “compassionate conservatism” and other meaningless terms used to mask the growth of Big Government.
Yes, and GWB would be the last person on earth able to interpret the results of 2006 and 2008. He should switch parties if he thinks the word “Republican” is an albatross, which factor he has mightily undermined.
Doublespeak for Republican Socialism.
If someone was angry at the growth of Big Government, it hardly makes any sense to vote for candidates (i. e., 'Rats) who obviously want BIGGER Government. So whether there was masking or no masking of garbage, it's hardly logical to vote for even more garbage. In other words, there is something missing in your statement, unless you are saying that conservatives didn't show up at the polls at all or voted for third party candidates.
Agreed. And Bush moved the party so far Left that Obama can now say he is governing from the 'Middle' which is where the Left used to be before Bush and his compassionate conservatism, aka Liberalized gobbley gook double speak, and the current Right is now considered to be the far Right fringe by the Left and the third estate, the MSM..
