Republicans want to pretend that Bush isn't president and hasn't lead the nation into hell for the past eight years, but Bush is still the head of the Republican Party.
Anyone who suggests that Obama has been ineffectual in his 12-year career as an elected representative doesn't know what they are talking about. Or is lying.
The actions of the Republican Party today don't support small government, fiscal responsibility, individual freedom, or protecting the Constitution. How would you feel if you were a Republican?
