Conservative DUH! Moment?
Bush faces backlash on the right
Conservative anger grows over president's foreign policy
By Michael Abramowitz
At a moment when his conservative coalition is already under strain over domestic policy, President Bush is facing a new and swiftly building backlash on the right over his handling of foreign affairs.
Conservative intellectuals and commentators who once lauded Bush for what they saw as a willingness to aggressively confront threats and advance U.S. interests said in interviews that they perceive timidity and confusion about long-standing problems including Iran and North Korea, as well as urgent new ones such as the latest crisis between Israel and Hezbollah.
At the risk of sounding immature...HELLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOO????????!!!!!!
NOW? they're upset? Oh give me a break...it's election time and they FINALLY have to admit that this President is a dunderhead and want to distance themselves as far away from him as possible. Oh they certainly lauded him in the fall of 2004. Unfortunately 48% of this country saw what he was for real and it just wasn't enough to keep this group at bay. Well Now we're in a pickle all right.
If you're a republican..I can understand your wanting your party back..back to it's roots of fiscal responsibility and smaller government etc. But really WHERE were you when this country really NEEDED you, you all bought their values lines and their swift boat ads, I thought you were smarter than that.....cry me a river folks. I'm mad as hell at you all for allowing this guy to be in charge today.
Ok, needed to rant...I feel better now.
