Two prominent Bush Administration Republicans echo many Big Lies against tea partiers and other conservatives, that have been staples of liberal Democrats’ playbook against the GOP since at least the late 1960s.
As reported by JoeForAmerica two days ago, Sen. John McCain’s Phoenix/Maricopa County, Arizona-base of precinct committeemen had had enough of such defamation that they chose to censure their own senior senator by a 77% vote. And of course we all remember the first words out of Speaker John Boehner’s mouth after tea partier conservatives returned the GOP to control of the House on promises to oppose Obamacare:
“We are only one-half of one-third of the government.”
Never mind that they own 100% of the purse strings required to fund Obamacare.
Enter his and other establishment, ruling class, moderate (given that a majority of elected Republicans in D.C. vote with Boehner et al, we do not consider them RINOs) Republican defenders, two self-described compassionate conservatives that served in the NCLB and Medicare Rx-drug administration of President George W. Bush have unleashed at an ad hominem attack against conservatives, disguised as a scholarly “Conservative Vision of Government”, that includes not one quote from any self-identified tea partier or conservative to justify the claim that we are “anti-government” or oppose reasonable government regulation or a safety net for the truly needy.
