President is no conservative



I don't understand how a president can take an economy that is strong enough to produce - at long last - a surplus then, through excessive spending and huge tax cuts, turn the surplus into a deficit while still calling himself a "conservative," as he did on TV.

If the American people want a full-spending president, it's their right to elect one. But we shouldn't delude ourselves into calling him a conservative. He is the most liberally spending president we've ever had.
