VTexan was referring to how you behave here.
I sincerely doubt that anyone on this forum wants to climb into your mind.

thats the best you got, con?
The equivalent of "I know what you are but what am I?!"
go back to reading your "Thomas Payne for Dummies" softcover and leave the heavy intellectual thinking for real conservatives.
Oh, yeah .. I forget: Buckley, Hitchens, Strauss, Bellow, .. pretty much the whole conservative pantheon renounced the GOP after Bush, doubly so when the likes of the Tea Partiers, Palin and Paul became regarded as "big thinkers"
US cons .. not conservative. Certainly nothing in common with UK Tories. Or any other Conservative Party in the world.
Intellectually bankrupt, politically isolated (er, "exceptional"), and morally absent.
Even Thatcher would sniff and look down her nose at you Yanks these days... (they will not be getting the good seats at the funeral ... )

Cons, like con..
Embraced hitch's post-911 hawkishness with overwhliming jubilation, gusto and raves.
Of course, he was always too contrarian to make it a true love affair. Such a sad, brief fling. Kinda pornographic in retrospect.
But of course, and no surprise, that con so pointedly ignores Buckley, et al... The godfathers of american conservatism, that disinherited W. and the tea party as so many inbred bastards .. an ideological small-pool cross-breeding thats led to the likes of o'donnell and Ryan.
Face it: the US conservative brain trust is an intellectually incestuous genetic dead-pool.
Given the level of rhetoric out of the GOP these days, it's accurate to say: y'all sure so got purdy mouths. And y'all sure do seem to swallow the party line whole.
Y'all haven't had a new idea in years .. Other that hate Liberals, er , socialists (Obama! ..not blacks!, or immigrants, er Latinos! Er... New Americans!))
Y'all don't even know who you hate these days.
But always attack, never apologize!
Thankfully, ignoring the threat of bin laden, invading Iraq on the basis of lies (no WMD), deregulating Wall Street and leading the world economy to depression, spending more government $$ than any other administration in US history, and continuing the GOP record of destroying middle and working class income and well being ... Well that's all yours.
You own it.
The bankrupt consequences of a bankrupt ideology.

" Buckley, Hitchens, Strauss, Bellow, .. pretty much the whole conservative pantheon renounced the GOP after Bush, doubly so when the likes of the Tea Partiers, Palin and Paul"
cdnreprtr, buckley died before bush left office. before the tea party, before palin and ryan became prominent.

Buckley died in 2008,
Sure, before Bush left, but not before he slaughtered the GOP in print
from that lib'ril rag, the National Republic, in Buckleys own words:
"The political problem of the Bush administration is grave, possibly beyond the point of rescue. The opinion polls are savagely decisive on the Iraq question. About 60 percent of Americans wish the war ended — wish at least a timetable for orderly withdrawal. What is going on in Congress is in the nature of accompaniment. The vote in Congress is simply another salient in the war against war in Iraq. Republican forces, with a couple of exceptions, held fast against the Democrats’ attempt to force Bush out of Iraq even if it required fiddling with the Constitution. President Bush will of course veto the bill, but its impact is critically important in the consolidation of public opinion. It can now accurately be said that the legislature, which writes the people’s laws, opposes the war."
BTW read on .. It gets worse.
"There are grounds for wondering whether the Republican party will survive this dilemma."

In william F's own words
"I think Mr. Bush faces a singular problem best defined, I think, as the absence of effective conservative ideology — with the result that he ended up being very extravagant in domestic spending, extremely tolerant of excesses by Congress," Buckley says. "And in respect of foreign policy, incapable of bringing together such forces as apparently were necessary to conclude the Iraq challenge."
Asked what President Bush's foreign policy legacy will be to his successor, Buckley says "There will be no legacy for Mr. Bush.
