In attempting to deceive everyone into thinking he's some kind of limited government conservative last night, McCain boasted that he's being supported by a gaggle of GOP poltical hacks and hangers on, including lots and lots of former Bush I and Bush II appointees, some of whom were sitting right there in front of him.
And what, pray tell, was conservative about either of these administrations? The first thing Bush I did was to denounce all real conservatives as "uncompassionate" while embracing Ted Kennedyism. His son did the same, increasing domistic spending more than LBJ did, while inviting the lunatic fringe of American politics, the Trotskyite neocons, to dominate his administration.
McCain clearly has no idea whatsoever of what a Goldwater conservative, or a Taft conservative, was or is.
