The Bush administration was not conservative.

Walter - are you saying these problems are Bush's fault?

Bush contributed to the troubles by his failure to defend conservatism, going along to get along.

I was at the San Mateo Tea Party yesterday. There were about 200 or so protesters there against tax and spend--no Nazi flags.

Read today's Daily Post about the quality of the people at the San Mateo protest--there was a nurse named Cindi there--who claimed that it was nice to know that there are a few sane people in the world and she had thought she was the only one!!! (would you want her takingc are of you at the hospital???)

This is a known ploy of the lefties. They go to right-wing events and pickup a few off-the-wall quotes to characterize the crowd. Of course, everyone in a left-wing crowd is completely rational.
But, Cindi sounds fine to me as a nurse.

Why do you start labeling things with "left-wing" and "right-wing"? There was no mention of "wings" in the story or in my post.
Seems to me you need to practice more teabagging

As I recall, Hillary Clinton invoked the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy when she was covering up Bills philandering.

It sort of evaporated after Bills " I did not have sex with that woman" speech, "what the meaning of is is" and the grand dénouement of the little black dress, cigars and DNA tests.

Those were the days

Teabagger,

I went to the Sacramento tea party. From your post:

"it was nice to know that there are a few sane people in the world and she had thought she was the only one!!! "

I came away from the tea party with that exact same feeling.

Maybe all is not lost, that is, if the DHS doesn't jail us all because we are "right wing terrorists"..... Well, even if they do, at least I won't be water boarded or go to Guantanamo.

They may likely send me back to Palo Alto, and that would be the worst torture of all :)
