Eldridge Questions Bush's Conservatism

Washington Times managing editor David Eldridge is questioning the President's conservatism.

Unchecked spending and unprecedented expansions of federal power, squishy policies on protecting our borders, and now the specter of tax increases, too?

Is there anyone who still thinks George W. Bush is guided by any conservative principles at all?

Bush the Son once said he’d learned a valuable lesson when Bush the Father lost his base by reneging on his “Read my lips: No new taxes” pledge. The lesson didn’t stick, obviously.

Though he has not yet convinced the Sentinel, he does make some good points. Let's hope he's wrong.
