Stop Your Whining

Conservatives seem to feel a lot braver now that Bush's poll numbers have dropped. They complain that Bush has expanded government to unprecedented proportions betraying conservative principles. Well, boo fucking hoo! What did these idiots expect by electing two people who have survived at the taxpayers' teat their whole lives. Cheney has been in government jobs his whole life except when he was at Halliburton where he used his government contacts to increase the company's revenues by getting more government contracts for them. Bush tried his hand in the private sector and was an abject failure, squeaking out only when daddy's oil buddies bought him out of the failing businesses, and having a modicum of success managing the Rangers only because the government condemned private land enabling him to build the new stadium on that stolen property. So, they suck at the government's teat their whole lives except when they fail at business and you people wonder why the government and its spending have grown so enormously and why they fail at governing? Look at their fucking histories, dopes, and then shut the fuck up. Or, better yet, after examining that, stand up and say, "We were stupid to think these morons could govern anything appropriately." And don't give me any bullshit about how great they were after 9/11. As my header quotes, "Any idiot can handle a crisis..."
