    Here is a sub-headline, "If He Succeeds as He Has in Iraq It Could Reshape Presidential Race," which is fun to contemplate.

    The rest of it is poorly written, so poorly that reading it is like wading through a swamp.

    I'm just amazed by the whole concept. Seems like he's coming to his senses about six years too late.

    Maybe he has had the good sense to start drinking again?

    I believe that he will go down as one of the worst presidents ever.

    He (Bush) is the perfect conservative.
    Popular support is bought mostly by fear.

    The 9/11 thing gave exuse to attack anyone. Illegal? What is law? WE come first.

    With blogs and perfect democracy... DNB ...your beloved country by dint of free trade gave fuel to Hitler in the bombing of Warsaw in 1939. It is culpable around Pearl, but in the circumstances...?

    Standard Oil, Rooseveldt, these guys were running *before* the 1929 margin calls, all unde markets, free trade.

    9/11 is relevant because the system requires war. At least to the extent that the invasion of Iraq means lots of money for the people who payed for his decision, notably, his father, who had legitimized Vietnam.

    I am constantly amazed by Americans, who like 'good guy bad guy' ...

    Actually, The Chimp is about as far removed from being a "conservative" (as the term is commonly understood in the context of modern US politics) as it's possible to be.

    Conservatives believe in economic nationalism; in minimal government debt; in protecting the individual against unwarranted intrusion/interference by the state; in federalism (giving states latitude to govern their internal affairs).

    Conservatives oppose militarism and empire building; they loathe the misuse of patriotic jargon to justify enhancement of state power; they put "America first."

    There is not one single basic principle of modern conservatism that The chimp hasn't upended or ignored.

    The conservatives you describe have never existed in organized US politics, at least not in the last 120 years.

    If, indeed, they ever existed. Most people want to get through life with a modicum of immediate comfort and don't much care about the name of the philosophy which provides it.

    As a self respecting Utopian socialist, I oppose both profit and work. The government must provide to all and without taxation, too.
