Interesting how the older establishment Republicans are suddenly popping out of the woodwork these days, criticizing Bush Jr. and acting so "appalled" and "insulted" at how the Neocons are ignoring the policy roads mapped out by the Reagan and Bush Sr. Administrations. Well, all I can say is, sorry, IT DOESN'T COUNT. Where were you when your cowboy Bush Jr. was gearing up in 2002 for the invasion? Where were you when Bush Jr. was strumming on a guitar while poor New Orleans residents were sucking in their last couple of pockets of air in their flooded attics? Where were you when it was obvious that the worst possible time to dole out huge tax cuts was during an unbudgeted war? Where were you when evidence became overwhelming that torture and illegal detention is not only allowed, but encouraged by the highest levels of our Administration? If there ever was an example of jumping from one bandwagon to another, you cowards epitomize it. So please, go crawl back into your spider holes and leave us alone; we sure don't need your faux criticism now.
