That's right. They are upset that the Republican failure is not conservative enough. But as I said, what they fail to see, is that being more conservative will only mean being more of a failure. To disprove this, you could simply point out one regime more right-wing than the Bush II administration that has been successful. In the world. Ever. In history.
That's right, you can't. Reagan wasn't more "conservative" than Bush. He raised taxes. Several "entitlement" programs passed under his watch.
"Conservative" economics, when it means supply side economics, don't work. They never have.
"Conservative" social policy breaks families and victimizes minorities.
"Conservative" gun policy has turned our nation into the most dangerous "first-world" nation in the world.
"Conservative" fiscal policy, i.e. cutting benefits for the poor, only results in higher crime and class warfare.
Yet you'll deny it and claim that the reason Bush was a failure was that he wasn't "conservative" enough. Right.
