COMO: COmment of the MOment

"Bush made his share of mistakes, no doubt, but weaponizing the Executive to destroy political opponents was not one of them.

"It is also not fair to say there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. I can complain about them being inept and squishy all day long but the differences are real. Not one GOP congressman voted for the stimulus and only a single poor soul voted for Obamacare, iirc. And that was when Obama's popularity was at its peak, a few months after his 2008 landslide. They didn't need more principles, they needed more voters.

"One way the left got so much done in the last 30 years is, they like to win. They don't worry constantly about the purity of their candidates, and even if they do, they support him anyway. On liberal blogs, you don't find people muttering how they will sit this election out because liberal x said something non-liberal to group y because he wanted their votes. He is their guy.

"Conservatives can bash Bush and say he was "just as bad" and liberals will feel vindicated, but they will never say the same thing about their guy. You mention Carter to a lib and he just counterattacks." -- Posted by: El Gordo inSide-Lines: "Occasionally, I miss the Bush years."

The difference being conservatives navigate by principle, versus by opportunity.
Hitting the reef is just bad luck.

Conservatives are not nearly so bad, no, but they are every bit as essential in maintaining the State which the left designs. The left are designers, bad designers. The right are mechanics, and good ones. It is like we once said about the Jaguar, the car may have a sexy shell but don't buy one unless it comes with a mechanic in the back seat.

That unanimous opposition to Obamacare is cracking. Look around. Republicans will fix it.
