    I'd very much like to hear your re-defintion, and how said re-definition is what it 'actually" means.

    Re: End of the Republican Party?

    I have come to the opinion that 'true' conservative or liberal exists in classrooms and think tanks. Neither are resilient enough to exist in the real world.

    I would not count the GOP out, after WWII and the Republicans smarting from their isolationism dropping them on the wrong side of history. They did come back by demanding to know who 'lost' china and commie hunting here in the states. Future leaders like Reagan and Nixon made their bones by hunting commies.

    Besides angry old white men will always have a place in American politics...

    If only you could be more specific on what bills they passed and that Bush signed. Then we could have more reasons to blame Bush.

    I -would- list the FY2009 budget, but Obama signed that.

    Bush just wrote and proposed it so he gets a pass?

    Congress passed it, after considerable modification.
    Obama signed it.
    Whatever blame you want to assign GWB for its submission, to remain honest, you must heap several orders of magnitude more of it on Congress and Obama.
    So tell me:
    How much do you blame Bush for FY2009?

    Ditto. Same here.

    But I believe as soon as the GOP alienates these albatross ideologues it will resurface again to be what it used to be. I look forward to that day.

    agreed. I don't see the majority of moderate Republicans going Democratic. Not sure who will fire the first shots, but I see the tea party not being in the party much longer.

    OK, but...
    I'd very much like to hear your re-defintion of "conservativism", and how said re-definition is what it 'actually" means.
    The GOP is a political party, not in ideology, and like the Democratis Party, has a broad range of people with a broad range of vews.
