Like jacking the Debt by almost $2 trillion? His stimulus wasn't much of one. Unemployment is still on the rise, government is still spending money like a drunken sailor(and this a far worse drunken sailor then when Bush was in office).

I started to respond, then found myself agreeing with this sentiment.

The only vote I have ever regreted, not ashamed of, was the one for Carter.

Born in Pittsburgh in the first Eisenhower administration into a family that has been in Pittsburgh since the early 1800s. Presbyterian and Methodist families. Married into a good Southern family. Baptist and C of C families. Paternal side of both families viewed FDR as evil incarnate. Maternal sides of both families were the polar opposite. All that to say that there was / is a very broad range of religious and political perspective in the two families,

Grew up in the evil shadow of totalitarianism and communism. Lived with the legacy of socialist tyrants and liberal fascists – Wilson, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, FDR, Mussolini. We did regular air raid drills in school into the 60s because of the world these @#$%s created. Seminal events that shaped early thinking - Nikita Khrushchev announcing at the UN that they would bury us from within, the Viet Nam war and the anti-war movement reaction to it.

Watched as the Frankfurt School and their children Marcuse, Horkheimer, Fromm, Benjamin, Adorno, Lowenthal, et al systematically destroyed American education through the indoctrination of cultural marxism. What deconstruction does to literature and culture, critical theory does to a society. American universities have embraced and advanced anti-Americanism influenced by their luminaries Zinn, Chomsky and Vidal. The world class pervert Kinsey destroyed our moral fabric.

Just preceding and during my lifetime, socialism has left a wake of murdered millions. We’ve been taught that the nazis were the champs at 6 million. When you count the Christians, the tally is closer to 20 million. Depending on who is counting, the sovs trumped their socialist brethren in the 80-100 million range. One can only imagine how many have perished at the hands of the chicomms. Not to be outdone, American liberalism leaves a wake of millions of murdered children.

The entire political spectrum has moved left over my lifetime. Ronald Reagan was always Ronald Reagan . He didn’t leave the dems, the dems left him. Today, HHH would be vilified as a conservative, yet Gore, Kerry, Obama and their ilk are considered acceptable candidates by many.

This last was the 10th national election for me. I have voted a straight rep ticket each time, not because I necessarily agree with the reps, but because the other team has so steadfastly gone against my country and presented us with such horrible candidates, the latest being beyond belief. GHW Bush is a liberal, but was a considerably better choice than the tank commander or that roach from Arkansas. GW Bush (WTF is “compassionate conservatism”?), while not presidential timber by any measure, was the only choice against the two leftist lying loons he ran against.

I take issue with the term “hater”. I don’t hate anybody except terrorists, whether they be bolshevik, turk, viet cong or islamofascist . I do hate socialism in all the various forms that it’s plagued humankind.

Strict constitutionalist. The founders had it right. The left has tried to destroy it since.

Dream ticket – Forbes / Gingrich or vis versa

Now you disclose.
Outstanding post!

I have a feeling your FOS!

The difference between my feeling and yours is that mine are 100% correct!

What an arrogant statement you made above! You blatantly ASSumed that people who voted for Bush would be embarrassed to say so? Why? Because you would've been? You were basing it on your own perspective! Your own feelings towards Bush! And obviously everything you think and believe is true of others?

I'll have you know that not only am I proud to admit that I voted BUSH in '04, I wouldn't hesitate to this day admitting that in No way - No how - would I ever have voted Kerry!

Nope. Thats gonna be BO. Bush was re elected serving 8 years. After BO serves just 4 and then finds his rear on the tarmac, he'll get the title he'll so "richly" deserves!

AMEN sister!

As I said in an earlier post - if he could run again for Prez, I'd vote for him again without hesitation.
