Why the political swipe, McBare?
Maybe if you pay attention to the entire article you will know why there was a political "swipe". Conservatives are suppose to be for smaller government yet this Administration and it's Republican Congress built the largest government in the US History with the largest expenses and largest debts, anathema of SMALL GOVERNMENT.

Then apologists like you come in and try and justify it as if it is OK and not countra to Conservative philosophy at all which, while funny to read is just BS.

I was simply pointing out the blatant hypocrisy that permeates the NeoConservatives.

Does that clear it up for you?


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
