Why Fiscal Conservatives Hate Bush

A contrite Bush is now saying: "I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system,"

My blood boils reading that. I want to put my fist through the screen.

Listen to this description from AFP:
Bush's comments reflect an extraordinary departure from his longtime advocacy for an unfettered free market, as his administration has orchestrated unprecedented government intervention in the face of a dire financial crisis.

Are you kidding me?! Since when is Bush is a "longtime advocacy of an unfettered free market?" The biggest spending, big government, subsidy addicted junkie in US history? This guy has signed every f---ing pork bill that has ever crossed his desk! He is no free marketer.

It makes me sick that unknowing people will relate free market capitalism with Bush. He should be the frightening example of Big Government that you use for campfire stories to scare your kids.


  1. Yes, I agree completely, Bush is a bigger big government Pres, then LBJ. Somehow he has a free market label. China is capitalist in practice, but labeled as communist.
    The world can be rather strange.

  2. Yes, wouldn't it be nice if the disingenuous press took people by their actions, not by their words?

  3. The more China gets interested in free markets, the more we get interested in planned economies.
    Very disturbing.

    Hopefully, we are learning from this.
