Bush-Obama Big Government

I resent that it is common to term former President Bush as a "conservative." Outside of his vigorous defense of the nation from further Al-Qaeda attacks, there is very little that he did that would be considered as conservative. Just off the top of my head - No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D the Department of Homeland Security, and more are not the programs that someone who espoused limited government would believe in.
Along comes Newt Gingrich with a plan for the restoration of Conservatism. From the article:
The Bush-Obama big government, big bureaucracy, politician-empowering, high-tax, high-inflation and high-interest-rate system continues to grow and to place the country in greater and greater danger from inflation, bureaucratic control of the economy, political interference in every aspect of our lives and massive debt.
Now President Obama represents continuity rather than change. The new spending bill (as the president called it in his Williamsburg speech last week) is more of the Bush-Obama continuity and represents more of the same instead of "change you can believe in."
Read the whole thing.
