The ChickenHawks Come Home To Roost

by Christopher Manion at LewRockwell's blog. An excellent summary of the idiocy that has been passing as conservatism these days:
The Wall Street Journal is shocked, shocked! that Democrats dare to blame Bush for the crash. What did they expect? They cheered on Bush for eight years, championing his unconstitutional wars that bled us dry, turned the world against us, and destroyed our livelihood and hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. They cheered the war. They cheered war profiteers like Richer Perle, and powermongers and abusers like Rumsfeld, Cheney, and even convicted felon Lewis Libby. They cheered the Middle East policy that convicted liar Elliott Abrams ran from the NSC. When the bloom came off the rose, they then mocked Ron Paul [unforgivable! --r.m.] when he told the ugly truth about the Bush years, when Dr. Paul knows more about economics in his little finger than all their editorial interns and happy-talkers ever learned in their lives.

And now they blame -- Obama?

Look, Obama is a socialist and he’ll continue ruining the country, no argument there. But with his high crimes, misdemeanors, and disasters Bush not only handed Obama his victory on a silver platter, but he also handed the country all the makings of socialism that Obama is now perpetuating and solidifying. Obama is undoubtedly grateful to Bush, even as he trashes him.

We can blame the socialists for being socialists, but don’t blame them for blaming Bush: he deserves it. And remember, the neocons will never, ever apologize. Never.
Larry Auster writes about Bush's most popular sychophant:
For the last eight years, Limbaugh was married heart and soul to George W. Bush, the man who caused more harm to the Republican party and conservatism than anyone in modern times. And now Limbaugh dares lecture the Republican party on its parlous state? This is why I can't take Limbaugh seriously. Don't get me wrong. I'm glad he's out there, I'm glad he's now rallying the troops against the Democrats. But personally I can't take him seriously. And he's not the only one. There is this vast cohort of Republican pundits -- your Horowitzes, your Hansons, your Bauers, [special mentions: Coulter, Hannity, O'Reilly, Levine, Praeger, Medved, Dan Patrick, Edd Hendy -- r.m.] their name is legion -- who have hopelessly compromised and tainted themselves with their love for Bush, their helpless, serf-like, forelock-pulling love for Bush, and the only way they can regain their intellectual integrity is through a full confession and renunciation. Which they can't do, because they put so much of their lives into serving this unworthy man.
James Edwards remembers who Limbaugh reminds him of: Matt Foley of SNL.
