I wish there was a way for Beck and Rush and the others to embrace a uniformed idea for taking back the country and reforming the Republican Party to something that stands for something.
I think they are trying by just getting out the facts about the statism of this administration. I don't know about Rush, but if he equates the Democrats and the Republicans the way Glenn does, I'm afraid he'll be doing damage.
I don't know what Glenn is thinking when he does that. Sure, I agree that some of Bush's policies deviated from conservatism, especially the Medicare drug entitlement and the bailouts at the end. But Bush wouldn't have continued to explode the debt the way Obama has.
He would have let free market forces work after the initial infusion of funds and he would have insisted on repayment, as was done with the bailout of Chrylser in 1979. Remember that Chrysler repaid that loan in 1983. If Carter had still been pres, he probably would have taken over the company instead of allowing repayment--just as Obama is doing now.
Anyway, there are real and significant differences between the Democrat and Republican Parties. I guess Glenn is just trying to be "fair and balanced," but I hope people will understand his message ultimately means that it is the Democrats who will take this country into a dictatorial totalitarianism against which we will have to fight another bloody revolution to get back to our democratic republic.
