The Gods of Liberalism Revisited


The lie hasn't changed, and we still fall for it as easily as ever.  But how can we escape the snare?

Scott McClellan Considering Vote for Obama?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Ain't that intriguing? Bush administration turncoat Scott McClellan likes what he hears from Obama?

So says the Politico:

Scott McClellan, making the media rounds to promote his book and push back against the ferocious counter-attack by Bush loyalists, declined to come out tonight for John McCain and said he liked what he had heard from Barack Obama.

"I haven't made a decision," McClellan told Katie Couric on CBS's "Evening News," when asked if he was backing the Arizona senator. McClellan paid homage to McCain, saying that the Republican nominee had "governed from the center, and that's where I am."

But without prompting, he said he was "intrigued by Sen. Obama's message."

"It's a message that is very similar to the one that Gov. Bush ran on in 2000," McClellan said.

Similar to the one Gov. Bush ran on in 2000? Boy, I don't remember being on Mars and having a bad transmission, but I could swear that while Bush's 2000 message in no way brought back memories of Ronald Reagan, it wasn't even in the same solar system with Barack Obama's empty message of "hope," "change," appeasement and celebration of homosexuality.

Are some true colors finally shining through, here?

Actually, there are similarities in Obama and McCain's messages to what Bush was saying during his 2000 campaign. Bush was promising to change Washington and unite both parties. But he ended up making Washington more divisive and partisan than ever.

From you previous posts, I get the impression that you're not interested in conservatives working together with liberals. But that's what needs to happen to get things done in Washington that will benifit this entire country. I hope either Obama or McCain can do what they promise and bring this country back together.

Bush did come to Washington hoping to unite and work together with Democrats. He made several naive overtures when he arrived, only to have his face spit in and knives stuck in his back by the Democrats. Bush isn't the least bit responsible for the divisiveness in Washington; it was already there, and his naivete (just like any attempt at appeasement) only made it worse.

And no, I'm not interested in conservatives compromising (even more than they already have) with liberals. That's what's made the mess we're in. Conservatives need to fight to get conservative principles implemented so we can get this country back on the Founder's plan and back on the road to greatness.
