"Bush is unfit to serve as president. He lied to the conservatives as he lied to all Americans in order to become president. Everyone should be worried about abuse of power...We cannot give up all our freedoms....Bush's father did the same thing, he lied to the voters."

Who said that? None other than:

Richard Viguerie (born 1933 in Texas,USA) is a conservative figure head and writer in American politics. He is the current chairman of, an online blog catering to conservative party members.

He has been dubbed the "funding father" of modern conservative strategy.[2][3]

Viguerie worked for the Christian evangelist Billy James Hargis in his early career.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego Ronald Reagan? That and the above quote were the running themes of an interview I heard on the Thom Hartmann show today on Air America.

I made my usual effort at transcribing. Here are some more bits and pieces:

People see what they want to see in Fred Thompson...He's a Washington insider....He won't go very far...he'll still leave a vacuum. Newt Gingrich will enter the race, but he's also a Washington insider, not a Ronald Reagan....

We should be looking for a Barry Goldwater, not a Ronald Reagan. He [Goldwater] launched the conservative movement which led to Ronald Reagan...

Reagan bankrupted the Soviet Union. Bush will bankrupt the United States of America...[Contrary to what he promised voters] he's a nation builder.

Is he for impeachment? No, but for what it's worth, he is for informing American citizens. He is one of the sponsors of the American Freedom Agenda (a ten-point complaint list of the most egregious of anti-Constitutional, anti-civil liberties proposals), along with others, including Bob Barr and Bruce Fein (who strongly back impeachment). He says Mitt Romney won't sign it.

His alternative to impeachment, at this point, is to coalesce groups to deal with this mess, from the ACLU to environmentalists to conservative organizations. That's nice. Now let's impeach.

My point in posting this is: The more conservative voices that are put out there to enlighten those who don't seem to hear or understand what this administration has done to demolish the Constitution, the better. Hartmann is trying to get as many of them as he can on the air, since the corporate media, to nobody's surprise, won't.

GW Bush: The Unconstitutionator. Thom Hartmann: The Educator and true American.

Viguerie, bleh. But at least he's publicizing (his book and) Bush's abuses.

Impeachment is not being pushed for political reasons. It's being pushed to protect what's left of our Constitution.

Reagan almost bankrupted the country, Bush is merely continuing his work.

Ironically, Bush is morally, emotionally, and cerebrally bankrupt.

What can you expect from people that disdains intellectualism and trumpets stupidity?

It's always encouraging to see conservatives jumping ship and helping with the anti-Bush movement. My only questiion... what took them so long!
