It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans?

Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.
Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

The Bush (Jr.) Presidency
A Mid-Term Report Card
The 2003 presidential "State of the Union" speech to Congress has been delivered, marking the halfway point in the presidency of George W. Bush, as well as the unofficial beginning of the 2004 presidential campaign.
After two years in office, we can now begin to judge the results of his policies and the direction and tone of his presidency. We at evilGOPbastards, being as "fair
and balanced" as a particular cable news network, will now attempt to grade the first half of the pres-
idency of George W. Bush.
The Deficit - F
The president's own advisers admit that we'll have a federal budget deficit of $200 billion this year (it'll probably be much worse), with deficits projected into the foresee-
able future. This comes after Bush inherited healthy surpluses from the Clinton administration.
The Economy - F
By any objective measure, Bush's economic policies have only succeeded in lengthening and deepening the recession that began in 2000. Unemployment is at the worst levels in well over a decade. Bankruptcies are at an all time high. The stock market has plummeted (along with huge numbers of Baby Boomers' 401k retirement funds). The cities and states are in a fiscal crisis with essential services being slashed. Yet Bush's solution is further tax cuts for the wealthy -- reducing federal revenues and ensuring that federal programs will be as cash-starved as the states' for at least another decade after his admin-
istration is a bitter memory.
Health Care - F
After promising a prescription drug benefit during his campaign for the presidency, Bush finally revealed his Medicare drug plan. It's a sweet deal, but with one minor drawback: seniors must quit the Medicare plan and purchase private health insurance to qualify for the benefit. Can Bush be so removed from reality that he doesn't com-
prehend that private, individually purchased health insurance for seniors is prohibitively expensive? No -- this cruel political hoax is strictly to provide political cover for Bush, so he can earnestly report during his reelection campaign
that he tried to provide an Rx benefit for seniors, but those partisan Democrats in Congress killed the bill (thank goodness!).
Education - F
Calling nationally standardized tests "education reform" is another cruel political hoax. The reality of standardized tests is that schools concentrate all their time towards "teaching to the test." Early results from SAT tests of students graduated from districts using standardized tests show no improvement and some declines. This is a bogus "spend no money" approach to education, in an economic environment that is putting the squeeze to public schools. Coupled with Bush's support for school vouchers, one can only conclude that Bush and the GOP are determined to abolish America's traditionally secular public education system.
Racial Politics - F
Despite the Karl Rove-engineered removal of Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott and Bush's reassuring public comments, the Pickering nomination is back and the Bush administration (falsely labeling the University of Michigan's affirmative action program as a "quota") filed
a friend of the court brief in an attempt to eliminate affirmative action. Bush's pandering to the Southern neo-Confederates is shameless.
Foreign Policy - F
Even with the steady hand of Colin Powell as secretary of state, his
boss's arrogance and incoherence are losing friends and gaining enemies all over the planet. Dub's politically inspired rhetoric about the "Axis of Evil" and loose statements that he "loathed" the "pygmy" Kim Jong Il turned a tense situation into a crisis. As an echo of the bad old days, the fingerprints of the retread Cold Warriors in the Bush administration are all over the abortive coup against President Chavez in Venezuela.
National Security - D
Bush's insistence that nuclear weapons decommissioned as a result of US/Russian disarmament treaties be "stored" instead of "destroyed" is beyond comprehen-
sion. In a rational government, the risk that we could somehow "run short" of nuclear weapons would be far outweighed by the certainty that former Soviet nukes were safely destroyed -- eliminating the possibility of theft by terrorists. This is a total no-brainer -- and a danger-
ously inexplicable policy of the Bush administration.
War on Terror - I
Incomplete. While Dub gets good marks for rolling back the Taliban (accomplished more with briefcases full of hundred-dollar bills than military exploits), his oft-repeated linkage of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden is evidence of either confusion or deliberate deception.
We can only hope that the Bush national security team has considered that a US attack on Iraq could result in a host of unintended consequences, including the very real possibility that Al Qaeda will receive thousands of new recruits eager to avenge an attack on their fellow Muslims.
Meanwhile, the Ashcroft Justice Department casually disregards the civil liberties of American citizens, and Osama bin Laden remains "dead or alive."
Veteran journalist Helen Thomas, who has covered eight successive administrations, had the most damning assessment of the presidency of George W. Bush:
"This is the worst president ever. He is the worst president in all of American history."
We couldn't agree more.
