Bush: The Liberal the Left Hates

For those who think Bush is a conservative: you have failed to see how significantly he has increased the size of government.

The Bush administration recently released its mid-session review of the federal budget for fiscal 2006. The new data reveal that in spite of repeated promises of fiscal responsibility by the Bush administration and congressional Republicans, things are bad and getting worse.

Today, Bush boasts of $122 Billion in federal dollars spent on Katrina aid, and promises more. Later in the day there is talk of $800 million for drought stricken farmers.

Fiscally, Bush may be less conservative than Ralph Nader.
