The Naked President

August 24, 2006
I well remember back in the 2000 elections many conservatives attempting to assuage my trepidation and misgiving regarding candidate GW Bush by saying, "Chuck, don't worry; Bush cannot act like a conservative, because he wouldn't be able to get elected.
Well, we waited and waddled through Dubya's first term in office, and there was precious little indication of his "true conservatism." Then, those same conservatives said, "Chuck, don't worry; G.W. couldn't act like a conservative his first term, because he wouldn't be able to get re-elected..." Now, nearly six years into Bush's presidency, I'm still waiting to see his "true conservatism."
