Noonan Takes on Bush

Former Ronald Reagan speech writer Peggy Noonan, takes aim at the Bush White House in this recent column from the Wall Street Journal.

Noonan says Bush is essentially betraying his conservative base (sound familiar). Here's how she put it:

For almost three years, arguably longer, conservative Bush supporters have felt like sufferers of battered wife syndrome. You don't like endless gushing spending, the kind that assumes a high and unstoppable affluence will always exist, and the tax receipts will always flow in? Too bad! You don't like expanding governmental authority and power? Too bad. You think the war was wrong
or is wrong? Too bad.

Noonan ends by saying it's time for American conservatives to win back their party.

That's good advice -- and not just for Americans.

Many can chose to park their vote with another fringe party or a possible independent.

Saying that Bush's only mistake was spending too much is akin to convicting Al Capone for tax evasion!

By the way, I think I just heard the "Conservative" party crack last night!
