    The latter Bush took neoliberalism and supply side economics (or what his father called “voodoo economics”) as championed by Reagan to their natural and devestating outcome.

    That seems to go entirely unnoticed among conservatives. The dogma is that Bush, as a big-government Republican (in terms of domestic spending; they still have no objection to high military spending or unchecked government power) was completely different from Reagan and the party needs to return to Reaganite values. This is said by both reformist Republicans and doctrinaire Republicans. It makes no sense.

    Bush executed Reagan’s policies more aggressively and less skillfully.Report
