Small government, fiscal responsibility, individual liberty, the Constitution - extreme. Got it.

The Bush legacy:  Interventionist to the extreme, huge deficit spending, a strong (fortunately, failed) push for amnesty, and the election of Obama with large democrat majorities in Congress.

The Bush vets need to back to the cave they crawled out of recently.  They are what is wrong with the GOP.

These Bushies render Fox News basically unwatchable.  And yes, they embody much of what is wrong with the GOP.

Yeah.  All they know how to do is win elections.

Yeah, the Bush legacy really helped McCain win that landslide election in 2008.  Voters are eternally grateful that we got into that Iraq War and had the economic collapse.   :silly:

Pattern:
--Eisenhower R 8 years
--Kennedy/Johnson D 8 years
--Nixon/Ford R 8 years
--Carter D 4 years *
--Reagan/Bush I R 12 years *
--Clinton D 8 years
--Bush II R 8 years
--Obama D 8 years

* exceptions to exchanging parties every 8 years. Carter so bad after only 4 years; Reagan good results and dem candidate Michael Dukakis was a disaster, and Lee Atwater cleaned his clock.

Otherwise, America has demonstrated a weariness with either party after two terms.

Other changes, Republicans exchanged the old south, for the rest of the country making the GOP now only a regional party. Johnson civil rights support, Nixon's Southern strategy.

Plus greater voting by minorities.

There is a similar 2 term underlying pattern here.

Even the low information voters get tired of the same faces and voices after a while and want a change. The joys of novelty usually triumph.
