But Imagine If The Shit He Was Doing Worked
We all would love our Glorious Leader.
We can't think of a president who has gone to the American people more often than George W. Bush has to ask them to forget about things like democracy, judicial process and the balance of powers — and just trust him. We also can't think of a president who has deserved that trust less.
This has been a central flaw of Mr. Bush's presidency for a long time. But last week produced a flood of evidence that vividly drove home the point.
And they list out the stuff... domestic spying, prison camps, a war we didn't need. But that's that liberal NYT. What about the conservatives who all love him? Bob Barr, conservative, points out to a conservative audience that conservatives believe in leaders who obey the rule of law.
"Do we truly remain a society that believes that . . . every president must abide by the law of this country?" he posed. "I, as a conservative, say yes. I hope you as conservatives say yes."
But nobody said anything in the deathly quiet audience. Barr merited only polite applause when he finished, and one man, Richard Sorcinelli, booed him loudly. "I can't believe I'm in a conservative hall listening to him say [Bush] is off course trying to defend the United States," Sorcinelli fumed.
Conservatives are now authoritarian, or more specific, Bushitarian.
