Reaganauts VS Bushites - Split in GOP

http://pittsburghlive.com/x/tribune-revi ew/opinion/columnists/guests/s_425051.ht ml

The Tribune-Review says Bush is "Running on Fumes." They are  published by Dick Scaife, who is Ken Starr's sugar daddy. So you are seeing Scaife turn on Bush. Scaife financed much of the "get Clinton" conspiracy groups who claimed that Bill had assasination squads killing women he'd had sex with. Dick spent about $30M on various anti-Clinton projects.

Now we see the Reaganauts publishing books like "Tyranny of Good Intentions" and "Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America." They are lashing back against people like Cheney and others who originally worked for NIXON for Christ's sake. It is these Nixon staffers who bring the obsession with war, paranoia, centralized control, and wiretapping. But Nixon was by todays standards somewhere between flaming liberal and homo commie.

So the Bushites claimed to take Reagan's conservative agenda and Supply Side economics and merged it with Nixon's twisted pathology and contempt for the Constitution. The Reaganauts now see the Bushites as having not only confirmed all criticisms of "voodoo economics," but having dug a hole so deep that it will no longer work. And they have squandered the public support that Grandpa Reagan built up in his first term (before he went senile and Ollie North and the other 6 dwarves started piling up the felonies).

So now we the various wings of the GOP are calling each other "traitors."

Few things are more enjoyable--Democratic majorities in both houses would work, though--than seeing them fight amongst themselves.

Re: Reaganauts VS Bushites - Split in GOP

Reaganites and Nixonites were the true conserv, this Bush is a half breed, he talks abourt conservatism but doesn't pursue it.  The Nixonites and Reaganites wanted to eliminate the federal gov't this president expanded it.  The Reaganites wanted to eliminate abortion, while this president appoints pro-life justices, he doesn't do anything else.  But Reagan actively pursued the elimination of abortion.  Lastly, the Reaganites talked about ending spending on social programs, this president expanded spended on his social programs. Reagan wanted tax cuts and eliminate the federal gov't, this presidents wants tax cuts and pork barrel spending on special projects.  This isn't the true conserv agenda, this a neo con philosophy.  Finally, Reagan wanted to end terrorism as well as get rid of facism.  This president only wants to get rid of facism.
