John, your post about the Kennedys and Bush 41 reminded me of something: In 2001, they gave their award to President Ford, for his pardon of Nixon. Teddy said, “I was one of those who spoke out against his action then [that’s putting it mildly]. But time has a way of clarifying past events, and now we see that President Ford was right. His courage and dedication to our country made it possible for us to begin the process of healing and put the tragedy of Watergate behind us.”
So now they’re honoring Bush for the budget deal? I hope he tells them to stuff it. By the way, what will they be honoring the hated W. for, years from now?
I could go on — and on — but I will end with an aphorism: For some, the only good conservative is a dead conservative, or one safely retired.
