Regnery, Alfred S.

American Spectator;Nov2005, Vol. 38 Issue 9, p4
This article comments on the loss of conservatism in the U.S. administration under President George W. Bush. Domestic spending, according to the Wall Street Journal, shot up 29 percent since Bush took office, military spending up 32 percent. The $286 billion highway bill was $30 billion over Bush's alleged 2004 limit, but he signed it anyway. Not one spending bill has been vetoed. Even presidential rescission has never been exercised by Bush.
