Shorter Strong Conservative:

As an eternal Reagan optimist/conservative, I believe the surge is working, the Taliban is on the run, Bhutto’s assassination is a good thing and there will be no recession. Yes, I’m often wrong about everything. Why do you ask?

No more Strong Conservative for me. It's just too wearying to figure out what exactly has gone wrong with that guy. I suspect religion is a huge part of, but it can't be the entire story.

Except for wild-eyed optimism and forced cheer, nothing in that post is redeemable.

This is going to be one of the memes for the next 365 days--

I doubt that recession is a major possibility in the next 4 economic quarters.... however, come Jan, 2009 (coincidentally when the next president takes over), the economy'll be "so bad!!!" and it'll all be the new guys fault--even if no percentage points moved at all on any scale of economics.

I've seen this meme elsewhere on other subjects. Iraq--"the next year looks hopeful for the Iraqis!!" Of course, when 2009 shows up and the new president has to start making decisions--well then Iraq is hell and why did the new guy screw it up soooo bad!!!

Yeah, for conservatives, I think this year'll just slide by and 2009 will be when everything goes to hell in a handbasket--'cause then it'll be the "new guy's" fault.

I, of course (being an optimist), am presuming that the president in 2009'll be a democrat.

"Bhutto’s assassination is a good thing"

they really do "dumb" much better as a group....

For the record, I did not say Bhutto's assassination was good. But with setbacks, there can be opportunities.

All he is saying, is give war a chance. And then he did say that Bhutto's death could be a good thing. Or a bad thing. I guess he is covering his bets.
