Uniting liberals and conservatives

The Left Coaster lays out the conservative case against Bush.
I have always been proud to be known as liberal and I agree with many of the goals of the traditional and new left, but I have also always been sympathetic to many of conservative ideals (as stated) and the drives that underlie them.
I’ve been dismayed to see the Republican party taken over by crony capitalists who pay lip service to conservative principles while running this nation’s economy and reputation into the ground, enriching themselves and their allies at the expense of most of us, so it is refreshing to see the “grownups” in the conservative movement beginning to take steps to repudiate the people who have highjacked their ideology and are taking it down into the sewer.
