    Republicans seem to have a short memory. Or selective amnesia. They didn’t seem all that concerned about Bush’s lack of a clear plan in Iraq or Afghanistan or the budget deficit such nation-building – oops, I mean liberating – adventures would bring.

    I could only imagine the cheerleading that would be going on in the Republican ranks if we had a Republican president right now. Plan? We don’t need no stinkin’ plan. Just bomb the piss out of ’em. And get that “Mission Accomplished” banner printed up forthwith. It’s gonna be a cake walk.

    But of course, compared to Obama’s and the Democrats’ spending habits, Bush’s deficit spending was indeed “conservative”. I guess that’s the new conservatism – just spend less than the other guy.
