The blame Bush crowd
Now look who has Bush Derangement Syndrome.
Well, I was a strong supporter of the President, but presidential unpopularity is bad for the president’s party. We suffered losses in 06 and 08. We wish President Bush well. But frankly, we will not have to be carrying that sort of political burden that we carried the last two elections.
Of course, you did that because Bush was nothing more than the party's salesman, a blank slate who spouted conservative talking points and toed the Republican party line at every turn. So it's no surprise that as you blame Bush for your party's failures, you don't mention one issue, one decision, about which you disagreed with Bush.
The fact is that the GOP lost so badly in 2006 and 2008 because the American people have rejected conservatism in numbers so great that Republicans couldn't steal enough votes to close the gap.
But please don't listen to me. Please continue to believe that the Republican party's biggest problems are Geroge Bush and a public image damaged by the liberal media, not the fact that eight years of conservative rule have led to epic and unprecedented failure in every arena touched by government. Please continue pandering to your shrinking base and drifting farther from the mainstream. Please continue proving that you neither understand nor care about issues that affect people's lives in meaningful ways. And please please please support Sarah Palin in 2012.
