BECAUSE IF CONSERVING MEANS ANYTHING...:

Rescue Tests Bush's Conservative Legacy (JOHN D. MCKINNON, 9/29/08, Wall Street Journal)

President George W. Bush's $700 billion rescue plan for financial markets is prompting widespread soul-searching within the conservative movement.

While many Republican lawmakers seek to distance themselves from the plan, or disown it altogether, White House officials hope the heated opposition gradually will cool if the plan works.

Many frustrated conservatives see Mr. Bush's rescue plan, on top of his decision to invade Iraq, as cementing his legacy as a big-government conservative.

To others, it marks his apostasy from conservative orthodoxy.


...it's that you should blow up the US economy for ideological reasons, right?
