Tom DiLorenzo on McCain, Bush, and Bush

On the Lew blog, Tom writes:

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.

Many Republicans have no idea what Conservative means, and that includes many people who currently self-identify with that label.

Here, here brother; that is why I kindly ask you to remove my weblog URL from the “republican” category and place me in a new big “C” Conservative category, where I may rest easy.
