Fiscal Conservative

I think this pic says it all:

 

And for my conservative friends:

George W. Bush was the ideal president for you. He did everything you suggested. He passed every policy you now advocate for.  He cut taxes for the wealthy. He blocked the redistribution of wealth at every turn.

He gave you everything you wanted, and the experiment failed.

I understand that Obama scares the hell out of you, and I know what that’s like – I sat and watched Bush get elected twice. I’m no stranger to thinking that this country is screwed beyond belief. The only difference between your fears and mine is that mine came true.

You can scream all you want that Obama is going to ruin this nation, but you’ve had your chance, and you screwed everything up.

Step aside, conservatives.

We’re in control now.

  1. Nice!!! I’ve often wondered what my dad (who was a true fiscal conservative) would have thought of GWB. I don’t think he would have agreed that he is fiscally conservative, but who knows?

  2. Every single deficit we’ve ever had is when the Democrats and socialism put their hands in everything.

    Reagan quadrupled revenues to the Government, but, even though he cut spending, the DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED Congress wouldn’t cut enough. And, Reagan bolstered defending spending which ultimately ended the Cold War, but also cost money.

    Bush 41 wasn’t a fiscal conservative. He rose spending and rose taxes. End of story.

    Clinton’s first two years in office he did nothing to end the 1990 recession and dragged the economy around. It was until Fiscal conservatives took over the Congress that they forced Clinton to drop things like capital gains, in essence, they forced fiscal policies.

    But, even Clinton ended his presidency with a recession, inherited by Bush 43, who then had to fight two wars mostly the result of Clinton and Carter presidencies, and he never cut spending.

    Just cutting taxes doesn’t make you a fiscal conservative.

    And McCain isn’t a fiscal conservative either. Thats why conservatives hate him. They vote for him because Obama is worse, and they like Sarah Palin.

    Only 1 of those were a true fiscal conservative, Reagan. And he created the longest period of peacetime economic growth in American history.

    By the way, what ever happened to the tax and spend by LBJ, Carter, FDR and even Herbert Hoover? Oh, they all failed.

  3. WE gave you “your time” in 1976. You did well. (sarcasm)

  4. ” George W. Bush was the ideal president for you. He did everything you suggested. He passed every policy you now advocate for. He cut taxes for the wealthy. He blocked the redistribution of wealth at every turn.”

    Wasn’t the ideal president (family didn’t vote for him in the primaries), didn’t do everything we suggested like cutting spending. Didn’t pass every policy, like immigration. Did cut taxes “for the wealthy” (as well as the poor) which was successful.

    Bush and his father were not fiscal conservatives. He himself proclaimed to be a “compassionate conservative”.
