Why Do Tea Partiers Approve of President Bush?

The Tea Party movement is challenging politicians and political establishments in many parts of this country. Many Tea Party supporters define themselves by their opposition to big government. However, according to an April CBS-New York Times poll, 57 percent of Tea Party supporters approve of George W. Bush.

It is not surprising that Obama's abuses would cause some people to wish for his predecessor. However, prudent Americans will not forget George W. Bush's damage to the Constitution, freedom, the economy, and the political system.

Political cosmetics pervaded many Bush policies. The No Child Left Behind Act was perhaps his biggest domestic fraud. The act was falsely sold as giving a wide ambit of authority to local school officials. In reality, it empowers the feds to effectively judge and punish local schools for not fulfilling arbitrary guidelines. Many states are "dumbing

    • Bush lowered taxes, he supported fighting men and women, and he appointed a couple well qualified originalists to the Supreme Court.

      In short, Bush was a mixed bag, doing both good things, and bad things. His main failing was that he grew a bigger, more intrusive federal government.

Or sending thousands to their deaths in the false cause of fighting terror?...thats a patriot?

    • The way Bush ran the Country into the ground some might say he was the America hater.

      ...Maybe he was just hiding behind the incompetence label to spring his plan with the Saudi Oil buddies that he owed so much.

      Bush sure destroyed much of what made America great...I just did not think he had put much thought into it...who knew it was he plan all along.

  • "Why Do Tea Partiers Approve of President Bush?"

    Now I have to ask, they do? Are you stupid?

    Bush was a Neo-Conservative and that goes against the stance of small government that the Tea Party Movement wants. Neo-Conservative believe in the spread of democracy through war. War is expensive and we could give a shit about democracy in some third world shit hole. By the way, the movement was just starting after the Bush bailout.

    "If Tea Party activists are truly devoted to freedo More..

  • Do they? The primary issue for the Tea Party is out of control spending, unsustainable debt, bloated, out of control government, and taxes.

    From that perspective, there are good reasons to be critical of Bush. He spent too much, he grew the government, and he created another entitlement we can't afford...the Medicare drug program.

    The fact that Obama is far, far worse doesn't spare W from criticism.

  • Looking from the outside it seems to me that the tea party movement is whatever the individual "tea party member" makes it out to be.

  • Could it be his skin color?...For the most part Tea Party epiphany only occurred after Obama won the election...making most the Tea Party look like hypocrites...They went from deficits do not matter...to being the biggest issue facing our Country...Just another Phony Outrage wrapped up in the flag and bible to push their agenda and giving themselves claim to moral and patriotic superiority.

    A rather emotional and dramatic display of sore losers...I just want my Country back...snif snif
