Bush** is not a failure.
The failure is the conservative philosophy itself. The YOYO Philosophy: You're On Your Own.

To suggest that Bush** has failed is to suggest that some other RW criminal could come along - say, Tom Delay or Bill Frist - and succeed at governing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Conservatives don't believe in government. They want to destroy government.

Bush** is not a failure. He's an obscenely successful conservative.

:rant:

That is all. Carry on citizens.

1. In fact, for some, he's a big success...
...corporate elite, religious freakshows, the living dead, and lycanthrope all over the world agree: Bush is a hero!

2. I agree
in some respects, although in others, they are very much for programs which funnel wealth back to the wealthy. They must maintain some government in order to collect taxes from we "little" people, and to form armies with which to fight other countries. What they disagree with is any notion that government has any responsibility to the people who pay for it. I like to think I can be a class warrior, too, although we didn't start the war, they did with their greed.

I'm proud to be a liberal, a progressive, and a member of the citizen's class warriors. I'm hoping that after the 2006 election, we are able to tip the scales so that it's more of a fair fight, although they control all three branches of government now, and the lackey press. Olbermann and a few others excluded, and thank our lucky starts for them.

3. What makes you think some other one will not? Bush has failed
It doesn't excuse others by saying it. They all failed us. Some Dems too.
But most of all we Americans failed us. We never cried long or loud enough.
We should have taken it to the streets. I don't see how our politicians can
make us all happy. We need to make sure they know what we (the majority)
want. Right now for once the majority wants out of this failure of Bush's
and his cronies.

6. What makes me think another conservative won't succeed?
Because conservatives believe government will fail. So there's no way they can succeed. How hard is that for a Progressive to understand?
