Today, President Bush admitted that he has "abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system." (Link to story here.)
What's next? Abandoning the principles of limited government to save federalism? Oh, wait, that's already been done.
Maybe abandoning principles of freedom to protect the Bill of Rights?
Back in 2000, it sure seemed like we were electing a conservative. And President Bush, to his credit, has done some things right. But it sure seems like he fell into the D.C. trap and has been sliding to the left since his arrival, doesn't it?
