KRAUTHAMMER'S ASSESSMENT AVOIDS "S" WORD
Someday the haters will look back on George Bush with fondness, realizing that "compassionate conservative" was just code for "liberal Republican." In a recent article Charles Krauthammer (AZ Rep. 12/14) dances around the word to describe Obama's agenda - his mission -, "socialism".
The movement has had it's ups and downs, with Carter, Johnson and Clinton. But it has finally triumphed with the "perfect storm" of circumstances - a war that has been mismanaged,a financial crisis that it fostered, a Republican administration that has already opened the doors to the treasury, both houses of congress controlled by the left and a new president dedicated to the cause. A desperate stand by a weakened conservative membership can only hope to slow down the juggernaut. If Obama can survive to a 2nd term, control of the Supreme Court will be the final nail in the coffin for our free market system.
