Hey, say what you will about Pat Buchanan but he got it right this time. Enough time has passed and the votes are in and BUSH, HIS POLICIES AND NEO CONSERVATIVISM ARE NOW A VERIFIED FAILURE!!!!
Judgment Day coming – for the neocons
By Pat Buchanan



The Democrats are determined to make the election of 2006 a referendum on Bush and the war in Iraq. And, as of now, that is how history will likely record it. But beneath the surface of the national election, a different plebiscite is being held, within the conservative movement, on the ideology George Bush imposed on Ronald Reagan's party.

What are the elements of Bushite neoconservatism?

First, an interventionist foreign policy, using U.S. power to impose democracy and "end tyranny on this earth." Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon are the laboratories and proving ground.

Second, "Big Government Conservatism," as seen in the deficits, the dearth of vetoes, soaring social spending in wartime, the bulking up of the Department of Education and "faith-based initiatives" – LBJ-style cash grants to pastors and parsons for social-gospel work, to reap a harvest of gratitude from the pulpits in elections to come.

Third, a La Raza immigration policy, featuring amnesty and a "path to citizenship" for 12 million illegal aliens, pardons for all businesses that hired illegals and outsourcing of immigration policy to Corporate America to go abroad and hire workers for jobs here Americans cannot take at the wages offered.

Fourth, a trade policy rooted in the belief that it does not matter where goods are produced or whether Americans produce them. What matters is unimpeded global commerce, where the consumer is king and gets all the goods he wants at the cheapest possible price.
On these four mega-questions, Republicans are as divided as they were in the days of Rockefeller and Goldwater. Where the right unites – on tax cuts, John Roberts and Sam Alito – the president has the nation behind him.


Wherever "conservatives" stand – whether Old Right or neocon, supply-sider or deficit hawk, America First or global democrat, big government or small government – the returns of Bush's policies are largely in and the outcome unlikely to change. And this is why Bush and the GOP are in trouble, and neoconservatism is in the dock.

The altarpiece of the Bush foreign policy is Iraq. American dead are at 2,600, the wounded at 18,000. Three hundred billion dollars has been plunged into the war. Yet Iraq is a bloodier, more dangerous place than it has been since the fall of Baghdad. One hundred are being killed every day, half of them in the capital. IED attacks on U.S. troops are at record levels – three and a half years after Baghdad fell.

The Bush democracy campaign brought stunning electoral gains for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Hamas in Palestine, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Moqtada al-Sadr in Iraq. Our ally Hamid Kharzai is today little more than mayor of Kabul, as the Taliban roam the southeast and coalition casualties reach the highest levels since liberation five years ago.
North Korea and Iran remain defiant on their nuclear programs. Vladimir Putin is befriending every regime at odds with Bush, from Tehran to Damascus to Caracas. Neocon meddling in the Bear's backyard has gotten us bit.


Unless we grade foreign policy on the nobility of the intent, which is how the liberals used to defend disasters like Yalta, it is not credible to call Bush's foreign policy a success. The Lebanon debacle, once U.S. complicity is exposed, is unlikely to win anyone a Nobel.
Bush's trade policy has left us with annual deficits of $800 billion with the world and $200 billion with Beijing. Once the greatest creditor nation in history, we are now the greatest debtor. U.S. manufacturing has been hollowed out with thousands of plants closed and 3 million industrial jobs vanishing since Bush took office.


As for Bush immigration policy, the nation is in virtual rebellion. Six million aliens have been caught at the Mexican border since he took office. One in 12 had a criminal record. In April-May, millions of Hispanics marched through U.S. cities demanding amnesty and all rights of citizenship for aliens who are breaking the law by even being here. Bush and the Senate are in paralysis, appeasing the lawbreakers by offering amnesties and by opposing House demands that the president seal the border before the invasion brings an end to the America we once knew.

While the economy has been running well since 2003, creating jobs, and the markets are performing well, the real wages of working Americans have not kept pace with the portfolios of the clients of Lawrence Kudlow. Industrial states, like Ohio, could be killing fields of the GOP in November.

To the neocon guru Irving Kristol, "The historical task and political purpose of neoconservatism would seem to be ... to convert the Republican Party and American conservatism in general, against their respective wills, into a new kind of conservative politics suitable to governing a modern democracy."

With some of us, the tutoring never took, but the neocons surely did convert George W. How's your boy doing, Irving?

So, if this is the case does this mean that Bush will cut his 5-WEEK VACATION short? Does this mean Bush will finally do something about our porous and broken borders? Does this mean Bush and the GOP will stop giving away our Ports and Airlines to the HIGHEST BIDDER etc...etc...etc...????

Good thing this story came along as the polls were headed south for Bush and the GOP as well as, IRAQ and Afghanistan are circling the drain and the Mid East is in the mdst of meltdown. However, you can expect the same Bush response to this as in all things i.e. Sound Bytes and Photo Ops and little else in the way of action.

All I can say is it was good the Brits were on this as if it was the Dept. of Homeland INsecurity it would have been bad news.

Another 5 week vacation could another Katrina be coming for Bush to ignore????

The biggest mole of the 100,000 strong Israeli lobby in the US Senate lost his primary bid for re-election. But Zionists are not worried because the most powerful political lobby in the world will find a way to keep their mole in office.

Lieberman will do what all moles do, come of out of his political closet, abandon the party that nurtured him to his powerful position and try to stay in the senate to serve his Israeli masters. His constitutes are not the good people of Connecticut but the State of Israel. Being the single biggest Democratic cheerleader of The Texan Nero for his crime of sending our brave men and women to protect his true puppet masters, Lieberman will probably stay in the Senate. Just think we almost elected this mole as our Vice president! The powerful Israeli lobby has the money, the power and all the resources to elect anyone they want and defeat anyone who crosses their path. This is the reason that Clinton, Kerry, and the other Democratic fools voted for the mess in Iraq and cheerlead Israel’s killing of innocent women and children in Lebbanon.

GOP Faithful: LIVING A LIFE OF ILLUSION
Truly, it never fails to amaze me as to how dense or just plain brainwashed the Bush/GOP faithful can be as the truth and the facts of the REALITY that the rest of us live in stare them in the face with Blinding clarity.

As I go to different Blogs and confront these Clueless and Brainwashed STORM TROOPERS of the BUSHCO/GOP cause there is a palatable sense that they have a conceptual aversion to see what the majority of the country already knows, that being that Bush’s Foreign policy as well as all that he and the GOP spouted as truth has been proven to be wrong, a LIE or just a plain FAILURE.

Yesterday, we saw that Mr. DEAD ENDERS aka Sec. Of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Architect of the failed venture in Iraq tried to talk his way around admitting that Iraq was in a Civil War. He wanted to play his version of Bill Clinton’s: What does '‘IS” mean as Iraq is now averaging at least 100 dead a day and Bush aka Mr. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” has asked for more troops to stabilized a failed and continuously bloody conflict with no end in sight.

With nothing but bad news continuously in the headlines Bush and all those that buy the GOP Line Hook, Line , and Sinker live in a land of self delusion and denial to the plain facts as they stand: Illegal Immigration is out of control, Iraq is in or will be in Civil War soon, Afghanistan is a Narco Republic with no central government with a reconstituted Taliban, the middle class is being crushed under the weight of stagnant wages, increased energy costs, no health care, and all this Administration can give us is Chimpus Maximus Photo Ops, Inarticulate sound bites and no ACTION.

However, when confronted about this long list of FAILURE AND INACTION the faithful and unquestioning Hitler Youth of the Right can only offer excuses and parroting the latest Fox news/Flush Limplard sound bite in defense.

Remember dear friends and free thinking Americans that you heard it here first over a year ago that this incompetent FOOL i.e. Bush, our CEO PREZ , was going to take this great Republic into the Abyss like he did every business he ever touched. I think that it is safe to say that as the two front war spirals out of control, the country is mired in Debt, and the average middle class stiff that pays the bill in the end is finding it heard to keep his head above water ..Bush has done just that. And as in the Past, the SHRUB will walk away from another failure and unlike other times in the past, Daddy and the family connections won’t be needed to clean up the mess that will remain…that will be left to future leaders and generations as the Chimp from Crawford rides off into the sunset chanting MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!
