"El RushBo" Limbaugh echoes my sentiments on the elections:
|The way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I'm going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, "Well, why have you been doing it?" Because the stakes are high. Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country's than the Democrat Party and liberalism does.|
While I can't say that I've been "carrying the water" for Bush and his administration, I can say that in hindsight there were some niggling doubts about where I thought the administration's loyalties were. Yesterday Bush was asked about how he felt now about his immigration policy. He perked up and became excited when he said, "Yes, I think we have a better chance of getting immigration reform now with a Democrat-controlled Congress."
The only thing stopping full fledged amnesty for illegals was a Republican controlled congress. Well you can forget immigration enforcement. This putz just got his ass handed to him in an election and he blindly trudges on into handing our country over to illegal aliens. He apparently doesn't care that they're bankrupting our social programs, medical facilities, social security, and municipalities.
The problem with the Republican leadership is that they ignored and continue to dismiss their bases' views and wishes. Bush moved away from the conservative principles that got him into office. The Big Government, the big spending the out of control social program spending .. spend...spend...spend...spend....This guy is worse than LBJ !
An additional problem which you can lay at Bush's feet is his ineptness in communicating to the public. Besides the southern twang and malapropisms, he just never stepped out and told us what the hell was going on in Iraq. The White House went dark for a long time - even while the Left was hurtling grenades at it and attacking it with all types of asinine accusations. And the White House just sat there and took it all without counter-attacking the idiotic afronts. When we wanted to hear positive stories about Iraq, all we heard was "comprehensive immigration reform". When we wanted to know more about domestic surveillance and the FISA courts, all we heard from Bush was "social security reform."
As a registerd Republican it has been a damn frustrating 6 years.
Maybe Bush will start doing something about his image and begin giving us the information that we need to feel like we, as United States citizens, are just as important as your run-of-the-mill Illegal alien. Bush seems to think that there is no difference.
