ABSTRACT
This article discusses the nature of the presidency of U.S. President George W. Bush. Bush made so-called "liberal" decisions to expand entitlement programs and government spending, which the author believes are impossible to reconcile with conservative decisions he made on issues such as taxation and abortion. Considering the possible explanations for this diversity of views, the author concludes that Bush's political positions arise from a lack of impulse control.
