It is hard to overemphasize just exactly how tragic George W Bush's failure was. He absolutely paved the road for Obama. The man was an utter disaster for this country. And now Obama moves the bar towards socialism even further. What happens next? My guess is that Romney will be just like Bush, a man with no character and no soul except the will to seek office and power. Maybe not, I will probably vote for him anyway with nose clamped tight. In a weird way Clinton was a libertarian's dream in realistic terms, except that he populated various offices and institutions with true Left Wing nuts from the 60s who have learned to game the system for their own sleaze.

A couple of weeks ago, I debunked the myth that Obama is a fiscal conservative by showing how TARP masks his real record.

I then followed up that post by showing that Obama is a traditional leftist who spends on social welfare programs, but also did a final post showing that Bush was similarly profligate.

Now we have some additional research confirming these points. Art Laffer and Steve Moore investigate Obama’s claim in today’s Wall Street...
