What does being conservative have to do with Bush? That man is/was a progressive in sheep's clothing.
Anti choice? Anti Stem Cell research? Whats progressive about that?
Your giving Bush way to much credit. The man was a easy going Red Neck figure head. It was his adviser's and fucking cabinet members that were the wolves who brought you 8 fucked up years of extreme right winged nut job decisions.
Obama is in the same boat, only he probably thinks he is actual control. He has a cabinet of left wing nub job's making similar fucked up decisions that is going to plauge us for decades to come.
Status quo for now, just a different group of wolves in the den.
